New Arrival: Bulletproof Coffee!

January 21, 2015

Imagine trekking through the Himalayas, feeling as though the life-force has been sucked out of you, when a sherpa appears like a mirage and hands you a warm and rejuvenating cup of tea blended with yak butter. Butter, you say? Yes, butter.

That is exactly what happened to entrepreneur Dave Asprey. One cup of this Tibetan elixir and he felt alert and satiated for the rest of the day. Once back in the states he recreated and modified the recipe with the lowest-toxin coffee he could find and the highest-end grass-fed butter available. He added an extract of coconut oil to improve brain function and coined it Bulletproof Coffee.

The drink caught on and now many coffeehouses serve up a variation of this brew. It may be difficult to convince people to ditch cream in favor of butter, but in actuality, butter contains more vitamins — such as A, D, and K2 — and is lower in sugar. 

The Organic Butcher is excited to carry the Bulletproof line of products. The coffee is rich in antioxidants, bold in flavor, and low in acid. It also won’t give you the jitters like some lesser brands.

We’ll also be carrying the supplements XCT Oil and Brain Octane Oil. XCT Oil is an immune booster that aids the body in absorbing vitamin E, calcium, and magnesium. Brain Octane Oil is said to increase brain function and eliminate the sense of fogginess especially during times of fasting. Both are derived from fatty acids found in coconut oil and can be added to your morning coffee along with butter.

If you prefer protein shakes to coffee, Bulletproof Whey Protein Powder is the perfect alternative. It contains no high-fructose corn syrup, fake sweeteners, natural or artificial flavors, or dyes. It is also antibiotic- and rBGH-free and will provide you with a fast source of nutrition when on the go.

On a personal note: I'm really happy with the whey protein. It is the cleanest tasting one I’ve tried. Until now, I've only been able to use whey protein isolate because of a milk allergy. Bulletproof is the first concentrates that I’ve been able to tolerate.  (If you can only tolerate an isolate or are looking strictly for the best post workout recovery then I highly recommend AboutTime whey protein). As an avid Crossfitter, I've also noticed that a little Bulletproof collagen protein gives me more sustained energy and makes my joints feel great during and after workouts. You can also make a killer post workout smoothie with a little almond milk, Bulletproof Whey, Bulletproof cacao butter (also in stock), and XCT oil. 

Stop in today and load up, you won't be disappointed! (We also carry grass-fed butter for your convenience.)

Picanha is one of the lesser known pieces of beef in the United States. In Brazil and other parts of South America, it is quite prized - and for good reason.  It’s delicious.  The picanha is a sirloin cap (also called rump cover, rump cap or coulotte).  The meat itself is lean with very little inter-muscular fat but it is cut leaving the hardy fat cap on, which allows it to baste in its own delicious fats while cooking.
