Bulletproof Coffee……. Oh Buddy.

Bulletproof coffee is: Coffee, Organic grass-fed butter and MCT oil blended together.  It is amazing.  MCT oil is found in coconut oil (that’s what I use) and is the next best thing if you don’t have the pure extract ( http://www.upgradedself.com/upgraded-mct-oil.html).  Sometimes I just drink coffee with butter.

Bulletproof coffee is the trademark of Dave Asprey.  Asprey is the founder and author of the biohacking site Bulletproof Executive and podcasts Bulletproof Radio.  I highly recommend both and suggest you take a look at the original post on the Bulletproof Coffee recipe.

I have been on Bulletproof coffee for about a week now and it has made a huge difference. I’m not sure if Bulletproof coffee is good for everyone, but I’m 100% sure it’s good for me. I noticed the difference instantly. I have increased my focus (therefore my productivity), I have more consistent energy and less hunger (without overeating the night before or interrupting the balance of my hormones). The effects of the coffee usually last about 3-4 hours. Thats solid, uninterrupted work. Also, because I’ve been interested in intermittent fasting lately Bulletproof Coffee has been very important.  Check out Bulletproof fasting if you’re interested.

Did I mention it tastes amazing?

Dinner @ The Terminus Hotel, North Fitzroy

After watching our beloved Saints get whipped by Essendon last night, Tyson and I decided to drown our sorrows with dinner and cider. The Terminus Hotel is on our tram line and we had heard the food was good so we stopped in.

When we first hopped off the tram we looked over and thought it might be closed. The building wasn’t brightly lit or conspicuous, but there were a few bikes out the front and some tables and chairs, so we headed in.

The menu was fairly simple, but we had a heck of a time deciding what to order. Did I want steak? Yes. I always want steak. But a big one all to myself? Maybe not. I liked that there was the option of choosing grain-fed or pastured (grass-fed) meat. I would go for the grass-fed beef any day. Cows eat grass. Birds eat grain. Cows are not birds, therefore, they shouldn’t eat grain. Right?

So, as a compromise, Tyson and I shared the hanger steak with beetroot mousse and celeriac purée and the soft tacos with chipotle pulled pork. And some french fries, but there isn’t really much to say about that.

I’ve read lots of recipes that involve hanger steak, but I have never cooked or eaten it before. When it came out I was surprised at how rare it was cooked (but not upset!). Tyson jumped on the Google machine and found out that hanger needs to be cooked rare to medium rare or it will be tough. He also discovered that hanger steak is derived from the diaphragm of the beast. Mmm!
