Of all the ridiculous beverage fads sweeping the nation, bulletproof coffee is probably the most absurd—coffee laced with butter that allegedly has all sorts of health benefits.
And of all the ridiculous athletes in the country, Tim Tebow is a leader of the pack. So it makes sense that the ultra-religious, media-hyped quarterback would be an acolyte of the cultish beverage, as he revealed in a Delish interview about his eating and drinking habits.
Here’s his complete bulletproof recipe from the piece:
“It really kickstarts your day,” he says. “It’s fantastic.”
What’s the deal with the bulletproof? Delish credited a man named Dave Asprey with starting the trend. Asprey apparently created a coffee blend that, according to his site, uses “Upgraded Coffee blended together with grass-fed unsalted butter and Brain Octane Oil.” In essence, Asprey and his follower claim that the combination has a “massive impact on” cognitive function (even though that’s really never been a huge secret).
Delish also unearthed a few other interesting things about Tebow’s diet: he doesn’t calorie count (something we’re seeing is common amongst athletes), instead opting to just dine until he’s full, and he prefers to eat things with higher fat because items that are low-fat tend to gain extra sugar. He also loves La Croix sparkling water and hates fat-free Greek yogurt.
The enigmatic Tim Tebow: a man as unconventional as his throwing motion.
