Coffee + Argan Oil

The popularity of adding oil to your coffee started about ten years ago and was inspired by the traditional Tibetan yak-butter tea- a combination of butter, water, and salt. The Western version, coined bulletproof coffee, uses 1-2 teaspoons of grass-fed butter, ghee, or MCT oil and contains high-fat levels with no carbohydrates providing a boost of energy while reducing appetite.

The downside to using butter (unless you use a non-dairy variety ) is that your cholesterol or LDL levels become elevated.

I decided to make my own version of bulletproof coffee with edible argan oil and was pleasantly surprised! I found the flavor of coffee with the nuttiness of the oil was quite delicious. Also, argan oil is rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids and does the opposite of butter by helping to reduce bad cholesterol. Here's another great bonus- as we age, skin loses elasticity, and eating argan oil can help maintain and improve that loss.
