Van Life Breakfast - Bulletproof Coffee

This is what I drink each morning after waking up in my van - Bulletproof coffee (coffee mixed with butter and coconut oil).

The coffee is part of my intermittent fasting diet. I have tried a lot of diets (paleo, primal, zone, blood type) but I chose to do a combination of intermittent fasting (eating food in a 6-8 hour window) and gluten-free. (I still love me some cheese and whole milk occasionally!)

This diet has worked best for me but diet truly is unique to each individual.

Bulletproof Coffee Steps: - Using the Aeropress, fill up the press upside down to the level marked 2 with ground espresso beans of your choosing (from Costco or Amazon) - Then add 1 tablespoon of Coconut oil (from Costco or Amazon) to the blender glass - 2 tablespoons of UNSALTED Kerry Gold butter (from Costco or Amazon) to the blender glass - Boil 2 cups of water using the Jet Boil Flash (Amazon only) - Stir in the boiling water to the Aeropress for 2 minutes and then press it into the blender glass - Blend it up and enjoy delicious bulletproof coffee!

It tastes like a creamy latte. The best part is that it makes you feel energized, focused, and full for hours on end.

The Lunch That I Eat Everyday

The video shows you what ingredients go into my sardine salad lunch (read more about WHY I eat sardines and not tuna).

I eat this same meal each and every day for two reasons:

1) It eliminates the need to decide WHAT to eat for lunch each day.

2) It is healthy and very easy to make.

I have been eating this lunch for the past two years and have yet to get tired of it. It hits most of the flavor profiles (except for sweetness) and I switch up the veggie, crunchy snack, and spice (kimchi or sriracha) so it never gets old.

Ingredients: - 1 can of sardines (from Costco) or a canned oysters (from any food store) - a few pieces of Gouda cheese (from Costco) - 1/2 cup of premade gaucomole (from Costco) - 1 tablespoon of Apple Cider vinegar or KimChi (from Sprouts, Whole Foods, or a big-name supermarket) - One chopped cucumber with sea salt or veggie bag (from Costco) - Nut-Thins crackers or Nacho chips or something crunchy (from any food store) - Sriracha sauce (from almost any supermarket)

Mix all everything together in a bowl except for the crackers/chips and enjoy!
