Bulletproof Bread – Keto and Low Carb
One of our favourite Bulletproof Ambassadors – Veronica Culver put this Youtube video together showing how to make a super simple, ketogenic low carb bread that sits inside the Bulletproof Diet.
- 6 pastured eggs, separated
- 1/2 cup grass-fed Bulletproof Whey Protein or Bulletproof Collagen Protein
- Grass-fed butter (to grease pan)
Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius (325F). Use middle rack and remove any racks above as bread will expand while baking.
Generously butter a loaf pan/dish (I use a ceramic one).
Beat 6 egg whites until stiff peaks form – a hand mixer on high works well. If you don’t beat them enough, they’ll collapse when you add the whey and egg yolks, and you’ll end up with a Styrofoam-like concoction. Yuck.
Add the whey (or collagen) and the 6 yolks, blend gently with mixer on low just until fully incorporated. Batter will be fluffy.
Pour batter into prepared dish and place in oven.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool completely. Loaf will sink to a normal height.
Once fully cooled, release from dish, slice and serve.
Leftovers will keep in the fridge for a few days.
We prefer to use Collagen due to the fact that Whey will denature a little when cooked.
We also added a little salt and sometimes a herb or two for flavour.
6 Honest Things Women in their 40’s want Women in their 20’s to Know
David Wolfe is amazing and this is a wonderful list of future-self to you tips for women but are useful for everyone!
- Self Love Comes First “Take the time to find yourself and figure out who you want to be before looking for someone else to cling to.”
- Find Your Passion “Feed your soul with the things you love in order to nurture your spirit and enhance your creativity.”
- Remember That You Are Enough ” You are you. You are unique. And that is more than enough.”
- Forget Societies Expectations “If society tells you that your dreams are too big, prove them wrong.”
- Don’t Be Afraid Of Change “Fear is our natural response to change, and the only way to alter that is to choose to embrace it.”
- Stop Caring About The Opinions Of Others “Keep an open ear and an open mind for the opinions of those you care about, but learn when to do things your own way, if that’s what is best for you. You are in control of your happiness.”
How We’re Setting Our Kids Up to Be Fat, Sick, and Unhappy
This one hit home for us, with a 6 and 4 year old, we made some immediate changes around our home.
- Their parents are told to ignore their instincts early on – from newborns whisked away to be checked-over, to co-sleeping, “The important thing is that parents have lost trust in themselves. Don’t. Get it back. Because once you start second guessing your motherly or fatherly instincts, you’re going down a stressful path.
- They spend most of their time sitting still in chairs at school – kids need to move, “We force them into chairs for eight hours a day, which is perfect training for future office workers but terrible training for healthy human animals.”
- They spend most of their free time sitting in chairs and sofas at home staring at screens – “In 2010, the average time spent each day staring into electronic devices for 8-18 year-olds was 7.38 hours. A 2013 American Academy of Pediatrics’ study found that average 8 year-olds use electronic media for 8 eight hours a day and teens average 11 hours.”
- They spend what little time remains sitting in chairs while being driven between home and school – “We’ve managed to stifle, confuse, and disrupt one of the most powerful forces in the known universe: a child’s sense of play and desire to explore the surroundings”
- When they do get to move around, they’re wearing heeled shoes – every degree of elevation is another degree a joint has to compensate “But we should give our kids the chance to start fresh and establish motor patterns without the altered input from heeled shoes”
- They eat too much sugar – “In today’s kids, just one daily serving of sugar-sweetened beverages is linked to a 60% greater chance of obesity”
- They don’t get enough time in nature – “Our genes expect trees, grass, weeds, sand, desert vistas, rolling waves, gurgling brooks, rushing rivers, towering rainforests, and all the other things we associate with the great outdoors.”
- They’re not sleeping enough – 30-40% of kids don’t get enough sleep! “We keep the TV on late into the night. We install blue night lights to keep the bogeyman – and sleep – away”
These aren’t too difficult to fix or workaround. Start with one and move on from there.
That’s it for this update, we’re busy working on a massive Grass-Fed Ultimate Guide which will include information on where to buy the Best Butter in Australia (wherever you are).
