Smoothie and salads for the brain

If there is one thing people who know me well know, it’s that I’m a thorough investigator with things that I am deeply interested in. I think has something to do with my father being a former investigator. Runs in the family. Ha!

When I first came across Bulletproof, the company completely intrigued me. First I tried their coffee, which is amazing and one that we always have in our home. Then, I moved on to the brain octane oil.  It’s a reliable and quick source of energy from fat, not sugar. It also helps your body burn fat. The best part, because I’m an overtired parent, it helps with mental clarity. Yes, please!

We’ve been using it for quite a while now, and I wanted to share a couple of different ways we incorporate into our lifestyle.

Smoothies, who doesn’t like a good smoothie. We make them often. Here is what we add…

1/2 cup blueberries

1/2 cup strawberries

1 cup organic spinach

1 Tablespoon hemp hearts

1 Tablespoon brain octane oil

1 scoop Bulletproof collagen protein powder

1 cup of filtered water or more or less depending on what consistency you like. You can also add almond milk.

Blend it up and enjoy!

The other easy option for adding this amazing brain boost in, is salads.  We eat our fair share of salads around here, so this is an easy one for us too. Here is a simple recipe for a yummy dinner salad…you can add your own measurements depending on how much you are making.

1 cup arugula

1/2-1 avocado

chopped up cilantro

1/2 of a chopped up red onion

1 Persian cucumber

sun dried tomatoes or cherry tomatoes

For the dressing…

1-2 tablespoons brain octane oil

1 fresh squeezed lemon

Himalayan pink salt

sprinkle of pepper and I sometimes will add a sprinkle of Italian seasoning.

That’s it!! Super easy and full of great fats.

I can’t wait to hear if you try the oil, it really is amazing for your body. Also, I would love to hear if you already use it and the ways that you incorporate into your life.

Stay healthy, friends!!
