100% to everything you said Ramona :)
I'm addicted, especially with the MCT added.
Ok I promise to make this for myself once I get eggs back into my life.
Day 16 so far of no eggs while I rule out potential food allergies.
It does look wild, and frothy!
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:
Primal Egg Coffee: The Best Part of Waking Up?
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!

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.
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!
I did not know about the egg coffee- bullet proof coffee is amazing...can one make the egg coffee with hot coffee?
Have you all tried the Primal Egg Coffee at MDA?? I tried it this morning with cold brewed coffee (I don't do hot coffee as lot), 2 eggs and a tbsp of MCT oil...YUM and gives a BIG energy boost, wow!
