It's wood and steel and cables and hardworking tabletops,
Grounds like earth, honest and forthright.
It's Saturday morning with eggs and bacon,
Starting another pot when the last cup's taken;
All-nighters studying for final exams,
Up before daylight, preps and plans.
Made on the run,
Pot brewed at dawn,
For round eyes and high fives
And days full-drawn.
Brash and bold, the big brother of tea,
Coffee is for going. Coffee is for me.
Especially Bullet Proof Coffee -- that which is getting me through Lent this year!
Have you tried Bullet Proof Coffee (BPC) yet? It's not for everyone, but I love it! Rich and full-bodied, hearty and nourishing, it's helping me through a Lent where I've got very little I can actually eat (since I'm low-carbing). Check out the full descrip here. And the "how-to" recipehere.
Ignore the marketing pitch for specialized "MCT oil" and specialty low mold beans that cost a mint. The key is to get the good grass-fed organic butter and organic low-mold beans of any variety. We get the Trader Joe's brand, which is competitively priced -- and, though it may not be as "high octane" as the MCT oil, cold-processed organic coconut oil works just fine -- and can be purchased at a good price at Sam's. Brew, add the goodies, blend until it whips into a frappe -- and mmmmbaby, you're good to go! Yummy lasting energy!
Not for low-fat dieters, mind you -- but just the ticket for folks who either don't need to lose weight or are doing the low-carb, high-protein lifestyle. And, helping save me this Lent!
