Today’s post on eating out will focus on what you can do to make it a more healthy experience. The first thing I do is bring my own “stuff”. Stuff? How vague! Well, to call them condiments would be odd too. What do I bring and how do I make them?
My common stash includes:
- Himalayan Salt (pink, organic, ground fresh by me)
- Brain Octane Oil
- Coconut Amino Acids (organic)
- Bulletproof Coffee
- Supplements (various, include nootropics)
Hybrids? Yes, these are a few of my favorite combinations, like:
- Brain Octane and Himalayan Salt. This is delicious with both steak and sushi. I use it instead of regular salt, or in place of soy sauce. I decant this into a dropper container. This allows for a more precise amount.
- Brain Octane, Organic Cinnamon and Vanillamax. Think of this as a healthy creamer. When making Bulletproof Coffee, you’d also add your butter, but this combines my favorites into one quick pour.
How to make a hybrid? It’s really much easier that you’d think:
- Prep your workstation, making sure you have all the right ingredients, extras if needed, and the tools. I use a funnel, aluminum foil (to shake the cinnamon into prior to putting it into the funnel), and a long toothpick (to break up clogs). Keep a paper towel or two ready.
More videos can be found here.
- Add the cinnamon. It goes without saying that either freshly ground organic cinnamon, or organic cinnamon already ground, should be used. The amount is based on your personal taste. I use about a tablespoon, maybe more.
- Use your toothpick if it clumps.
- The add your vanillamax. What’s vanillamax? Click here to learn about the amazing Bulletproof vanilla that’s not only organic, but “processed” in a way to preserve all the value of the seed. Don’t have any? Organic ground vanilla would be your next option. I use about a tablespoon, maybe a bit less. Real vanilla isn’t as sweet as the extracts, so be sure to taste if this is your first time using organic ground vanilla.
- Now I add my Brain Octane Oil.
- If you’re using Ultra Violet Glass (which what I highly recommend), use a flashlight to ensure you fill it up without overflowing the bottle.
- Last steps are easy… put the lid on, shake, and label! I used a Slow Pour jar for this hybrid, as I’m usually pouring this into my coffee.
