My morning routine is to get up, put the coffee on, 20 minutes of yoga then make myself a “butter coffee”. In case you don’t know what that is, let me explain. Butter coffee (or you may have heard about it as Bulletproof Coffee, the most popular brand of MCT oil) is coffee blended with grass fed butter or ghee and MCT (medium chain triglycerides) oil.

The idea behind butter coffee (or keto, or Bulletproof coffee) is to fuel your body with nutrient-dense, blood sugar stabilizing fat.  Here’s a great article from Buzzfeed: MCT oil is a concentrated form of coconut oil that goes directly to your liver to provide long lasting energy and improve blood sugar regulation and metabolism with the added benefit of improved appetite regulation.

Sometimes, when I’m in a rush or out and about and need another coffee boost during the day, its not always convenient to blend up a butter coffee. Enter Know Brainer! I discovered Know Brainer in an interview that the owner Shari Leidich did with a food industry magazine and was intrigued.  I contacted Shari to find out more and she sent me some samples to try.  They’re FANTASTIC.  Not only are they extremely easy and more convenient to use, they taste great too.  Initially, there were regular options of French Vanilla, Original, and Hazelnut they have casein and lactose free flavors of Mocha, Vanilla Bean, and Hazelnut.  All flavors are natural; my favorites are the Original and the two vanillas. Hazelnut is good and the Mocha was my least favorite. Recently, they’ve added options for complete instant coffee, matcha and chai tea and hot chocolate.  I haven’t tried the new instants but I will very soon and add them to this review.

I’ve never been much of a breakfast eater and Know Brainer solves that problem for me as I use it as a meal replacement for breakfast. I don’t have any hunger pangs or energy lags for the entire morning. Sustainable energy until lunch time eliminates my usual morning time drowsiness. I’m definitely a night owl.

Retail availability is pretty limited right now but they are available on Amazon and Thrive Market.  To purchase on Amazon click here: (this is my affiliate link) Or to purchase on Thrive click here:
