Polished off the asparagus from last night to jump start the body with some morning veggies!

Plated: asparagus + eggs with a side of asparagus (thanks honey for the extra dose of asparagus!) and sweet potato hash

I attempted this new hype that everyone is posting about “Bulletproof Coffee!”  I don’t have this bulletproof coffee that apparently should be used, so we made a drip coffee using Cafe Du Monde Coffee and Chicory.

I used 20 ounces of water to make one cup – I am still adjusting to caffeine, just the slightest bit of stimulant is enough to get me going.  I placed this liquid in the large Nutribullet cup and let it cool.  I used the blending attachment and quickly mixed the coffee plus 2 tbsp of coconut oil [the bullet proof craze uses butter – I do not believe in butter being paleo if milk products are not “allowed,” because guess what BUTTER IS A MILK PRODUCT so none of my recipes use butter or ghee].  I prefer to use Nature’s Way EfaGold Coconut Oil as it has a richer coconut flavor when I want this taste.  If you want less coconut taste then I would recommend using Spectrum Coconut Oil.

Go easy on the caffeine and coconut oil though – this is not for the individual who drinks multiple cups of coffee a day as you will easily rack up the calories!

enjoy this sunny fall day… and hopefully there will be an evening like this again today,
