A piece of my mind...Butter in coffee?

Quiet Saturday morning with hot coffee and a multitude of thoughts....

You know I'm a MOM, and I'm a BIG-SISTER and I'm often the first one down a new path...I go quietly and often very privately.  Reading, learning, figuring it out and then most certainly I JUMP IN...all by myself.  Seeking no permission, seeking nobody to do it with me.  I just tend to go!  Putting my butter in a cup of coffee was one of those events...

Well I didn't die....and when accompanied by coconut oil, (I had to buy my first jar for this experiment) and heavy whipping cream whipped into a frothy oily drink...it's pretty good.  The mother in me, or maybe it's the BIG SISTER... wants to tell all my friends who are jumping all IN!..This is a MEAL REPLACEMENT!  Not in addition to breakfast... Certainly the Mother in me will look over the top of my glasses and ask you if you are still EATING bread and butter, sugar, potatoes, rice and...YOU KNOW THE DRILL or do you?  Butter in the coffee fits into a low carb or Ketogenic diet....Not in the American Standard Diet...It will just make you FAT and you will turn around and say it doesn't work...and I will turn around and mutter, "that's why I try and keep my mouth SHUT about what I'm doing."...But, hey what I'm doing is working! 

 

The Big sister in me wants you to know, I read, and read, and read, study and figure it out and look to what reputable sources are saying BEFORE I popped out a Bullet Proof Coffee...The Mother in me wants you to be a success too.  But the truth is, EVERYTHING Fat, Keto, Paleo, Primal and even more mainstream Weight Watchers have RULES and most of these plans are formulated with the concept of being consistent and sustainable.  Most start out with weightloss in mind and slowly you can actually find a way to sustain these types of diets into a lifestyles that bring everything into control.  Then someone comes by with a cupcake in their hand....And that cupcake?  It's a whole different thought....Can't have the FAT and the CUPCAKE BOTH...that will make you fat, sick and very unhappy...
