As you can see from my Instagram, when I'm blending all these crazy things into my favorite mugs, I love myself a bulletproof coffee. This concept originally derived from the Keto diet, remember that time when everyone was putting slabs of butter in their coffee -- yeah, that. I personally started doing the bulletproof as a way to get my daily collagen dose for my joint pain. I have a gymnastics background and old injuries so I needed a more natural way to combat the flare-ups. I can honestly say that since doing this every morning I now have far less pain and some pretty awesome side effects like longer hair, clearer skin, weight loss, toning, higher focus, and more natural energy. I've had friends say that I'm glowing, that they want to know my "secrets" so here we are! I used to be a 3 cup black coffee girl, plus a daily Starbucks, and now I just have my one cup of bulletproof to last me the entire day. It takes a couple of weeks to get used to, but then you truly start to crave and look forward to it. I would recommend this to ANYONE! It is my greatest life hack so far.
Bulletproof coffees are known for: weight loss, enhancing hair, skin, and nails, natural energy, increased focus, healthy gut/digestion, joint/bone health, build lean muscle mass, support heart health. It's filling, tastes yummy, and starts your day off on the right foot!

For those who are a little freaked out about the bulletproof coffee, try the collagen coffee first! I take a cup of coffee, a scoop of collagen powder, a splash of vanilla flavoring, a little half and half, and topped with whipped cream. This is more like a morning treat and tastes amazing with all the healthy benefits of collagen.
I know, it sounds SUPER weird, but actually tastes amazing! There are studies showing that coffee is causing a lot of hormonal and anxiety issues, especially for women. For those wanting to try a healthy coffee alternative, I recommend these brands, and giving mushroom coffee a try!
