First, the most amazing coffee recipe you’ve never tasted (unless you have). Then, one of the best things I’ve done to improve my health and optimize my workflow. Lastly, an awesome St. Patrick’s Day Deal on the Spokane River.
What Did I Do To My Coffee?
Last newsletter, I explained how fatigue, brain fog, chronic sinus infections and major inflammation wrecked my life. I also discussed how I pulled myself out of that hole with sinus surgery, a low inflammation diet and moderate exercise. Now, I want to share one additional secret weapon…
But not any typical coffee, bulletproof coffee. Recently, there’s been a lot of studies discussing the benefits of coffee consumption. From the antioxidants, to the cognitive boost, to brain protection and fatty acid release for extra energy. It’s all good, well, maybe not sweating underneath your armpits. But, if you want the ultimate coffee experience, try this recipe:
- Your standard serving of coffee
- Add 1 tablespoon of butter
- Add 1 tablespoon of MCT oil
- Blend or shake vigorously
Weird? Maybe. Does it work? Absolutely. Taste? Delicious. Here’s a quick video explaining it all, even what MCT oil is.
What Did I Do To My Chair?
Keeping with the theme, health and optimizing performance, I did something else that dramatically improved my overall wellbeing. I got rid of my chair.
As Pangaea grows, by design, I spend more time in the office and less time guiding. I noticed over a few years of sitting more and working outside less, that my back hurt more, my fatigue increased and I just felt “older”.
I read a recent study which implied that humans who sit more die first. Dying sounds bad, so I got rid of my chair, bought a treadmill, chopped the arms off the treadmill, raised the desk with a few blocks and added another block under my monitor.
The difference? Tremendous. Add walking while I work to bulletproof coffee, I feel unstoppable (or at least less tired and more focus during the day). I average about 3 to 4 miles a day.
Want to try it. Shop for a used treadmill on Craigslist, modify it, raise your desk and raise the quality of your life.
