Milk in your coffee? Maybe.
What about butter? Probably not, unless you are one of the people who have picked up on the Bulletproof coffee craze.
New Plymouth’s Trudy Northcott is one of the devotees and her belief in the benefits led to the launch of her new business last week.
Called Primal Culture, Northcott stocks Bulletproof coffee beans and health supplements, including Brain Octane, which is derived from coconut oil.
This, blended with black coffee and a tablespoon or two of butter for about 20 seconds long results in a latte-like beverage.
Northcott said she discovered the drink and Bulletproof diet when she was researching treatment options after she battled 15 years of bad health, including a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
However, it took her a while to come around to the idea.
“I spent several months being sceptical,” the mother of one said.
She now swears by the health advantages she gets from the unusual combination, along with the associated diet, which is made up of mainly unprocessed foods, like eggs and meat.
She said the method gave her more energy and she was now free of the symptoms of her illness.
Northcott said although the business provided her with a job, she was keen to talk to as many people as she could about the product and how it could benefit them.
“It’s definitely about creating income, but it’s also about helping people.”
