2Geeky w/ Bunny: Weird Coffee
KTB TV presents Bunny Themelis'”2Geeky (for the streets)”
I am a standup comedian and trivia champion who often creates material that is just too geeky for the streets. Or the comedy club.
I like to tackle history, mythology (it was my minor in college because I’m all about that paper$$$$$!!) and the weird, random things that interest me.
This week I make some Weird Coffee, aka “Bulletproof Coffee (TM)” as popularized by the “Bulletproof Executive” Dave Asprey. Dave is a grade-A weirdo and geek (that’s a compliment coming from me) who went from being an overweight Silicon Valley millionaire who was sick all the time to a proponent of a diet high in healthy fats and low in “toxins.” Now, not everyone is on board with Asprey’s claims and he markets the hell out of his own branded line of products, but I do love reading about all of his self-experimenting.
This coffee has grass-fed butter and MCT oil and is actually really good. You see, unsalted butter is really not that different from cream. But full disclosure, I like my coffee strong and not sweet, so if you are a Frappucino-aholic this may not be for you.
There is evidence that suggests grass-fed butter is healthier for you. And the combination of high-quality fats makes the effects of the caffeine in coffee much more even keeled. I am someone who has slight hypoglycemia, meaning when I am hard at work and forget to eat my blood sugar drops and I get hella nauseous. When I have a Weird Coffee in the early AM I am satiated and energized until lunch.
Dave Asprey is not the only weirdo who makes this kind of coffee. Tim Ferris of Four-hour Work Week fame also has his own version, sometimes substituting purreh tea for coffee. Joe Rogan is a big fan of it, he often hands it to his guests at the Joe Rogan podcast.
Just try this weird shit, but make sure you BLEND. Stirring does not a Weird Coffee make. If you don’t have a fancy blender like me, you can use a hand immersion blender. A regular blender will also work, but you may have to blend longer. Make sure you build up a nice foam.
