Healthy Links Week 5

Quotes of the Week

“When people hear more than half my calories come from healthy fats, one of the most common questions after “why?” is “how?” Dave Asprey, Bulletproof Coffee

“I’m quite sure that in a relatively short period of time we’ll consider the current notion that there’s a single, optimal diet for everyone as an outdated and ignorant idea.” Chris Kresser, Coffee is good for you – unless it’s not!

Byrd House Coffee

Dave Asprey proved his marketing genius when he touted his coffee as a nutritious fat delivery system and named it “Bulletproof.”  There is much skepticism of the claims made by Asprey (here, here, here and here) but suffice it to say, if you like coffee and are moving in the direction of a ketogenic diet, a Bulletproof-like coffee or tea mix could be for you.

We like Starbucks organic Yukon blend ground for a cone coffee maker like our Moccamaster. Most mornings we follow the original Bulletproof recipe by dumping the coffee, grass-fed heavy cream, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil and organic unsalted cultured butter into the Vitamix and blending for just long enough to homogenize the mixture. If we’re on the run, we just zap some cream and butter in the microwave and pour the coffee on top giving it a brief stir on the way out the door.

Recipes We Tried and Liked This Week

Our hit of the week was Ina Garten’s Mustard Roasted Fish featuring oven-roasted Mahi plied with a luscious sauce of creme fraiche, mustard, shallots and capers. We literally could not get enough!
