I am the biggest Mark Sisson fan, but to be honest when I read this yesterday, I thought he'd finally lost his mind. Nothing about the idea appealed to me.
...But, being the biggest Mark Sisson fan, I decided to at least try it once... I mean, he's led me down A LOT of other paths that I thought were pretty crazy, and those are now just part of my new 'normal'... so why not this, right?
Oh. my. GOODness!
The full recipe is here... I think Mark's commentary is important/helpful:
I tried the whole egg version (with hot coffee), and added some vanilla, and halved the sugar (I'm not a sweets person). I have never been a fan of 'specialty' coffee, and I tried 'bulletproof' coffee and didn't care for it, but THIS is lovely! I thought I was drinking a caramel latte, or something! And it was straight up nutrition.
This will definitley be my go-to when I don't have time to sit down for breakfast!

Dr. Jason Fung: "Holy consensus, Batman. With so many 'experts' from Michelle Obama to the USDA to virtually all of the medical professionals (including doctors and dieticians) agreeing that 'Eat Less, Move More' is the way to go, you might think that it is 100% unquestionably true. But here's a queer thought... if we all agree that we know the cure for obesity, and we've spent billions on educations and programs - why are we getting fatter? In other words, why does this 'cure' suck so bad?

I thought it would be disgusting but it's actually not ;) But I like eggs anyway pretty much lol! I wasn't a fan of the butter...but the oil doesn't bother me and it's a good way to get me closer to my target macro nutrients!

I haven't tried it. To be quite honest, it looks really unappetizing to me. lol I have tried oil in my coffee. I like it better without. *no offence. I freeze my coffee into ice cubes, then blend it with some unsweetened chocolate almond milk and a pinch of stevia. I leave the eggs and oil to enjoy WITH my coffee. lol
I'm sure the eggs in your coffee are good for you though. Enjoy!
The actual "recipe" is for hot coffee, I just don't drink mine that way :)
The Egg YOLK recipe has: 1 1/2 cup (350 ml) coffee 3 pastured egg yolks 1 tsp sugar 1/4 tsp of salt
The WHOLE Egg recipe is: 1 cup (240 ml) coffee 2 pastured eggs 1 tsp sugar Pinch of salt
I forgot to do the salt lol, and I use Xylitol in place of sugar (we don;t even have regular sugar in the house lol), but you could easily use maple syrup or molasses or what-not too. You just froth the eggs with a spoon (well, you could use a stick blender and such but that's too much hassle for me in the AM lol) and dump into the coffee :) I added the MCT oil based on some of the comments and the idea of teh Bulletproof coffee too, and I like this WAY better than the butter/MCT/coffee!
