Coffee with grass-fed butter and MCT oil - a quick start to a productive day

Coffee with grass-fed butter and MCT oil - a quick start to a productive day

This article has been automatically translated from German. While our little team is working hard to provide you the best quality and resources, our multilingual capacity is still limited. Don't judge us by the Google translation please and head over to the original version in German instead.   

At AURUM we drink the so-called Bulletproof Coffee, a creamy latte that consists of high-quality coffee, pasture butter and high-quality MCT oil. MCT is an oil that consists of medium-chain triglycerides and is obtained from coconut oil. Although coconut oil also contains many medium-chain fatty acids, the majority of these fatty acids are the so-called "lauric acid." In a high-quality MCT oil such as Rocket C8 MCT which is made 100% of coconuts, however, only caprylic and capric acids are found, which are metabolized faster by the body and give an extra boost.

Two basic effects of butter coffee (Bulletproof Coffee)

On the one hand, it increases performance by increasing attention and concentration. On the other hand, it supports the body's endurance. The AURUM team often replaces breakfast with coffee, which also helps to avoid carbohydrates in the morning. By avoiding carbohydrates in the morning, you force your body to burn fat. Bulletproof coffee quickly provides stable energy without affecting the blood sugar level and keeps you full for a few hours. We do not use milk, because the butter is enough to give the coffee a fine, smooth taste and light color; In addition, the butter contains less lactose. Simply prepare coffee, blend in a piece of willow butter and a spoonful of MCT oil. Enjoy!

Coffee and fasting

Many Bulletproof Coffee drinkers use the coffee to facilitate the fasting phase of so-called intermittent fasting, because the combination of coffee and butter does not interrupt the fasting! The fats, especially the MCT oil, serve as an energy source for the body and the brain. With a ketogenic diet, you can lose weight without starving. The ability to concentrate, attention and perseverance are supported.

Talk to us the next time you come to AURUM, we will be happy to tell you more, and if you are brave you will also get a freshly brewed butter coffee to try!

Fat Loss
Michi: "How I lost 25 kilos with just one workout and healthy eating while maintaining my weekly feast"
Michi has become 73% stronger and 25 kg of fat lighter. Every Tuesday for the past 12 months, Michi Berlinka, 50, rings the bell at 13:10 sharp at Löwenstrasse 53a, AURUM Fit Studio in Zurich. "If someone had told me that I would name a fitness subscription as the best investment under 4000 Swiss francs, I would have thought the person was crazy. After all, I played handball and soccer for over 20 years. Unfortunately, I had suffered a knee injury, developed a great liking for everything that is unhealthy, and weighed 130 kg thanks to a lack of self-discipline. Today I'm the crazy one, already looking forward on Monday to the fitness appointment on Tuesday!"

Chicken egg tapping or chocolate egg hunting? 10 reasons to eat more eggs for your health
Eggs - a pure vitamin and mineral bomb that should not be missed not just at Easter, but also at the daily breakfast table. Eggs are real powerhouses with many valuable nutrients. They are rich in vitamins A, B2, B12, D and folic acid, as well as phosphorus, selenium, iron, zinc and choline. Almost all the proteins and amino acids contained in eggs can be converted and absorbed. And now comes the surprise: egg yolk contains more proteins than the protein itself! Yup, egg yolk consists of about 50% water, 32% fat and 15% proteins. Liquid egg white, on the other hand, is about 90% water and only 10% protein. #sorrynotsorry but so much for the trends of eating only egg white omelette with leeks and spinach on the weekend. Oh yeah, and one thing right up front: the information in this blog post refers exclusively to the chicken eggs and NOT the chocolate eggs.
