Fatty Coffee for Ketogenic Diet

Try This Fatty Coffee for Ketogenic Fat-Fasting with Grass-fed ghee

At this point, you’ve probably heard about Fatty Coffee or Bulletproof Coffee made famous by my buddy Dave Asprey.

But can putting fat in your coffee actually help you drop fat? The answer may surprise you.

Now, some people go overboard by slugging many hundreds of calories of pure fat every day in their coffee and wonder why they’re not dropping fat. In this blog post, though, you’ll learn how to make your coffee the right way to rev your fat-burning engines.

Most days, I enjoy 1-3 cups of coffee in the morning with a tablespoon or so of grass-fed heavy whipping cream per cup. If I’m feeling hungry, I might add a teaspoon of full-fat Grass-fed ghee Keep in mind that my typical daily Fatty Coffee calorie burden accounts for around 100-150 calories – NOT the 500+ calories some people dump into their cuppa joe when they’re going nuts with slugging Bulletproof coffee all day. (All calories are not created equal, but they do count.)

A cup of coffee or tea infused with grass-fed ghee, and even a little grass-fed heavy cream can be a tasty way to get quality fats into your diet… especially if you’re doing a ketogenic or cyclical fast and avoiding carbs and protein in the morning to help normalize insulin and blood sugar.

These days, a lot have you have been asking me, “Can I eat fats while I’m fasting in the morning?!”

Sure! When you add fats to your fasting window, it’s technically a ketogenic fast or “Fat-Fasting.” The short-chain fats and medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) found in grass-fed ghee, coconut oil, and whipping cream are burned readily as brain fuel. Compared to the carb-crash cycle that happens when you eat toast and cereal for breakfast, you might feel alert, satiated, and free from cravings when you focus on getting fats in the morning.

Why would you want fat in the morning instead of carbs? Recent research shows that what you eat in the morning programs your metabolism to run on that fuel for the rest of the day. So if you’re eating cereal, bread, juices, or other carbs in the morning, many people experience carb cravings and elevated (fat-storing) insulin for the rest of the day. But when you focus on fat in the morning, you’re programming your body to BURN fat as its main fuel which can spur fat loss.

HOW TO MAKE FATTY COFFEE THE RIGHT WAY

Since coffee is one of the most sprayed crops on Earth, start with organic coffee to avoid exposure to pesticides. French-pressing coffee is a quick and dirty way to get full extraction from your coffee grounds—or try an AeroPress.

Do yourself a favor and always get the freshest beans you can—most of coffee’s flavors dissipate two weeks after roasting. I love to roast fair-trade, organic, green coffee beans at home on the stove to ensure I always have the best-tasting and freshest coffee possible.

If you can’t roast your own beans, then go for a good quality, freshly-roasted, whole bean coffee to ensure your beans aren’t stale or full of nasty chemicals.

In this video, I’ll walk you through the process I use to make Fatty Coffee, inspired by Dave at Bulletproof. Having a bit of butter and MCT oil in your coffee can be a great way to feed your brain in the morning, but it can be easy to over do it. You don’t need to count calories, but you do need to track what you’re eating and be sensible about what you’re putting in your body throughout the day. There’s a big difference between one or two cups of coffee, and polishing off an entire pot by yourself. Cheers!

Ghee Chocolate

Mix ghee and cocoa powder in a 1:1 ratio (example: 1/3 cup ghee and 1/3 cup cocoa powder). Add a keto-friendly sweetener (such as stevia) as desired. If you like, you may add sea salt, lime zest, or cinnamon before placing in the fridge to set.

Falafel

Falafel is deep fried veggie balls and it is prepared by using veggies like chickpeas and fava beans. It is an easy to prepare traditional Egyptian as well as Middle Eastern food. Usually it is served in Pita, which works as a pocket type wrapper for the balls. In UAE sometimes Falafel is served with flatbread called as taboon. In Middle East it is also known as Ta’amia. It is one of the most popular side dishes in UAE, which you can easily make in your kitchen.

  • Finally, add the remaining chickpeas, fresh herbs, and pulse until thy get completely chopped and well combined, but not totally mashed – the mixture need to be clumpy with chickpeas.
  • Dash in the baking powder and 4 tablespoons of flour and pulse. Add sufficient bulgur or flour so that the dough can be formed in small balls and doesn’t stick to hands.
  • Put all the falafel balls into a bowl and place in a refrigerator, covered, for 3-4 hours.
  • Heat 5cm Milkio’s Ghee in a deep pan at 170C/350F temperature, then fry the falafel balls in batches and drain on kitchen paper.
  • You can make a side dip with all ingredients mixed and blended in mixer.
  • Serve Falafel balls with tahini sauce (Tahini is an oily paste made from ground sesame seeds. It is widely available in UAE grocery markets.), grilled flatbreads, and plenty of salad.

You may garnish falafel in authentic Israeli style also: use these condiments: Harissa hot sauce, pickled turnip, and sauerkraut.

Now enjoy Falafel with your friends, family, and Milkio’s pure ghee nutrition!
