Laird Superfood Review + Coupon Code

About Laird Superfood:

It all started with a cup of coffee. 

A note from co-founder, Laird Hamilton:

“I’ve always been the sort of person that looks a little deeper at the things I consume on a daily basis. Coffee, for instance, is a morning go-to for so many people, including myself. I wondered how I could improve it.

Growing up surfing and trying to maintain consistent energy was tough and I was in need of a serious boost to keep me energized. I started to add functional fats to my coffee to fuel me throughout the day. It was more of an experiment really, and it proved to be so powerful that I started making cups of my “special coffee” for all of my friends too. Those friends noticed a positive difference and asked me what I had done to their coffee.

I realized that I had tapped into a way to help myself and my friends perform at their best using simple, clean, whole-food ingredients, and that’s how Laird Superfood came to be. For me, it’s about creating essential everyday products that are accessible for everyone. I love the Ohana we’re building and am so grateful for everyone who is a part of it.”

A Note From Founder, Laird Hamilton:

From a young age (approaching middle school) as highly motivated young athlete, I found myself really looking up to a few professional athletes that live their lives in a way that i aspired to. Their personal training philosophies, outlook on life and approach to nutrition.

These professional athletes are Laird Hamilton & Gabby Reece. They are both uniquely gifted in their own right,  endlessly transparent, light and unveiled–and they’ve been partners + endured heaps of transformation over 20 years of marriage.

Through the years since middle school, i’ve watched them both evolve from afar as athletes, parents, professionals and business people.

When i saw they were creating Laird Superfood, I just literally couldn’t have been more stoked. Such a no-brainer. So, here i am now, 7+ years into running a blog platform comprised of all the things i believe fuel a good life. I’ve written over 400 blog posts which means i’ve tried and reviewed a whole ton of products.

One of very few out of that 400, Laird Superfood products are a mainstay + a big focus of mine now.

These guys are in a league of their own. I couldn’t be more proud to support Laird + Gabby and their brand. I even checked off a bucketlist item at the 2019 Expo West and got to meet both of them. So cool. Both of them are supremely present and authentic in real life; just as I would have imagined.

Laird Superfood Review + Coupon Code: My Experience

In a few words: exceptional quality, exceptional feels. If you read my backstory with this incredible brand (above), then it’s clear that I’m a huge advocate for the people behind the products. The products themselves are a big heaping pile of icing on the (paleo) cake 🙂

The best way to articulate how much I value these products is to walk you thru a day with me.

How I Use Laird Superfood Products in a Full Day

First thing upon waking, chug a big glass of water and get the coffee making started. We mix the medium + dark roast whole bean coffees together, grind them, then brew the coffee in our percolator (our current brew method of choice). I appreciate that with these organic beans, I don’t have to worry about ingesting pesticides or any other harmful chemicals in my cup of coffee.

Coffee Brewing

When the coffee is ready (it always lights up the kitchen with the most robust, mouth watering scent), I grab my barrel mug out of the cabinet, add a heaping tablespoon of superfood creamer (I rotate the flavors; they are all awesome–but I’ve been loving the Pumpkin Spice and the Chocolate Mint lately), then I fill up my barrel mug about 3/4 of the way with the fresh coffee.

The barrel mug is so awesome for mixing things into your coffee. It’s been my staple mug for daily use (the rest of the mugs in our cabinet are sad about this, but there’s no comparison as far as capacity and functionality).

Also, I’ve been stoked to try out their new liquid creamers and have added them into the rotation as well!

Mixing

Next, I use the dual speed power frother to mix the creamer into the coffee. It only take a second and then I’m ready to drink it! The creamer mixes in so easily this way. You can also use a spoon to mix; as long as your coffee is warm/hot, the creamer will dissolve easily.

Oh–and I do add a few ice cubes to my coffee because it’s usually piping hot and I want to drink it right away.

Laird Superfood Review + Coupon Code: My Experience (continued)

Commuting/Driving

Then, when I’m leaving the house for something (nowadays it’s not as frequent but it’s usually to grocery shop, go to the dog park or head to the gym), I pour another serving of the coffee + creamer into my insulated mug andI can guarantee it will stay warm for as long as it takes me to drink it.

Also, this is a great time to use the Instafuel if you did not brew coffee at home that morning. All you do is mix the coffee + creamer powder mixture with hot water and you’re set!

Post Workout

After I finish my workout (I mostly do Crossfit workouts at our gym here in south Kansas City), I add a tablespoon of the pineapple mango Hydrate powder to my water and drink it shortly after finishing movement.

I notice that this helps me not feel completely drained after a workout in which I put a lot of effort in and lose a lot of sweat.

Equips Me for Each Day Ahead

In summary, the good fats + clean coffee get me fueled up to take on the day and the hydrate powder helps replenish my electrolytes and re-up my mineral intake after sweating so much (I’m a heavy sweater).

There is a noticeable difference for me in how I feel when I am regularly incorporating these products into my daily “routine”–in quotes because every day looks a bit different, but I do like to move my body at least once a day, even if it’s just working on mobility/stretching.

Nighttime

I aim to stay away from caffeine after noon, so if I want something warm to drink, I make an herbal tea and add a scoop of the superfood creamer to make a sort of fatty tea latte. I find that this helps me feel satiated thru the evening.

Laird Superfood Review + Coupon Code: My Experience (continued)

Aquamin: A Thoughtfully Selected Ingredient

An added perk that can really give you a glimpse into the thought that is put into these products; the creamers and hydrate products all contain a marine algae-derived calcium called Aquamin.

My understanding is that heavy coffee consumption over time can deplete us in certain vitamins/minerals (I’m thinking this might have something to do with caffeine causing the bladder to be more spastic).

So, to combat that and make sure that’s not an issue for you, Laird Superfood adds Aquamin to all of these products. I just think that’s super cool and good to know that you’re getting even more good fuel in these drinks/products that you may initially think.

The Laird Superfood Quality

I’m a huge advocate for Laird Superfood because I believe in the people, the products and I believe they can be beneficial to you, too. The quality and thoughtfulness of the sourcing will have you feeling good about the caliber of the fuel you’re putting into your body.

Laird Superfood Mushroom + Cacao Coffee Recipe

Freaked out by the idea of eating/drinking mushrooms? I’m here to help you get over that! This Laird Superfood Mushroom + Cacao Coffee Recipe is just as delicious as it is restorative.

Laird Superfood Mushroom + Cacao Coffee Recipe

Why ‘Shrooms?

(no psychadelic effects in this drank, folks)

Various mushroom varieties (chaga, cordyceps, lion’s mane, maitake to name a few) can offer you all kinds of brain boosting + mental focus perks. Besides, it adds a wonderful rich + earthy full spectrum flavor to the back side your big gulps of coffee.

Mushrooms are classified as adaptogens, which essentially means that they help boost your immunity and make your body more resilient to stress. If you think about it, mushrooms grow in harsh and precarious environments. In my mind, it’s like we are taking on those robust + tough characteristics when we consume them.

Why Cacao?

It’s the base of our beloved chocolate! Unlike the processed chocolate bars you’ll find in most store, raw cacao powder is an antioxidant powerhouse. Cacao will provide you with energy (without all the sugar), mood stabilization and even help you curb your cravings + satisfy that sweet tooth.

Why Fat with Coffee?

When combined with a fat, the caffeine in coffee becomes more steadily absorbed and provides you with a sustained, gradual increase in focus, versus experiencing a jittery feeling from coffee consumption.

I like that Cacao Butter utilizes the fatty part of the cacao pod + that it’s vegan! You could also opt for a coconut-derived oil.

I don’t need to ask Why Coffee…

Coffee is the universe. Okay, but seriously, I probably don’t need to talk anyone into drinking coffee.

Mushroom Cacao.jpg

*I added some grass fed butter to this cup, which explains the floaters!

Laird Superfood Mushroom + Cacao Coffee Recipe:

-Your favorite mug. A mug that makes you happy.

-1 teaspoon Laird Superfood Organic Performance Mushrooms (it’s a blend of Chaga, Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane & Maitake)

-1 heaping tbsp Laird Superfood Cacao Creamer

-1/8 cup of your milk choice (I love cashew or almond when I don’t have access to raw dairy)

-Fill up your cup the rest of the way with freshly brewed coffee.  (I use Laird Superfood organic, whole bean coffee.

Tips:

I recommend blending it up with this Laird Superfood Power Frother. I love that you can tote it around as needed (gym bag, purse, car, etc.) and it works very well; with low and high power settings.

Keep in mind, that it’s normal for the fat to rise to the top after your cup of coffee has been sitting for a while.

Recipe: How to Make Bulletproof Coffee

Bulletproof Coffee

Have you heard of this? Bulletproof coffee is becoming increasingly more prevalent–as it should. Without diving-head-first into the boat loads of science behind these ingredients and the synergy that exists between them, I’ll give you the…

Semi-basic run down for why bulletproof coffee can take your coffee routine to the next level & a few tips on making your own:

  • Improves your mental clarity
  • Slows the assimilation of caffeine and fats in your body, making them more filling & giving you sustained energy versus just a quick boost.
  • Coupling the coffee with fats improves the satiating effect of the drink and the natural caffeine content of the coffee bean helps make the fatty acids more readily available for absorption and energy use in the body.
  • Laird describes this robust drink as one that will give you “a whole new focus.”
  • The presence of fatty acids in the coconut ingredient help reduce inflammation in the body by decreasing triglyceride levels.
  • Make sure to choose a coffee blend that is organic (preferably a dark or espresso roast, as those often contain less acid.
  • You can make this completely vegan and dairy free just by using the MCT oil, coconut oil and/or palm oil.

My interest in bulletproof coffee has existed for a while now–initially prompted by this video by one of my main professional-athlete-inspirers (surfing legend, fitness & nutrition guru), Laird Hamilton.

 

BP coffee.jpg

My Recipe for Bulletproof Coffee:

(created with inspiration from many!)

No exact measuring here! Everything is approximate.

Instructions here are minimal:

  • Simply combine all ingredients (sans coffee) in your coffee cup.
  • Brew your coffee as usual, separately.
  • When finished, pour the hot coffee into your cup to combine all of the ingredients.
  • The heat from the coffee will liquify the oils and help everything to combine.
  • Stir & ENJOY!

I’ve loaded up that list with the links to all of the products that I used.

Also, it’s just worth mentioning that I drink this is the morning in place of a breakfast. Lately, I’ve been practicing intermittent fasting (only liquids until 11amish, then eating from about 11am-7pm) paired with a ketogenic approach to eating. I’m not counting macros right now, but I mindfully to good sources of fat for energy and then an adequate (filling) amount of protein.

Be sure to use the code FMG20 to save 20% on your first order of Laird Superfood to equip your kitchen with all of the ingredients you need for fat-fueled, bulletproof coffee!

Have you ever made your own bulletproof coffee? I’d love to hear about it. Happy Brewing!

Laird Hamilton: My Inspiration. “Blame Laird”

Laird Hamilton: My inspiration, My motivation, My guru, My hero.

I suppose most people have professional athletes they look up to in hopes of being inspired, motivated, awestruck and captivated.

Laird Hamilton is this athlete for me. My interest and constant pursuance of his interview, book and video material is a part of many of my days at the computer.

Most that are close to me know about how highly I think of Laird Hamilton.

When I read his words or watch his videos, I feel so inspired both athletically and in pursuance of my dreams in life.

I feel so alive watching another over-the-top passionate athlete like Laird Hamilton exuding love, appreciation and dedication to his sport.

A lot of my habits with food and exercise have been cultivated with consideration to how I understand Laird to live. He does it right.

He has been deemed by many “The Best Athlete in the World.”

The phrase,

“Blame Laird”

was created in reference to his unique training techniques and passion for big waves.

I want to take advice from THAT guy.

I don’t always have the right words to say nor story or message to describe. So, often times I borrow his. Now is one of those times. Actually, it’s even better. It’s Laird’s wise words and experiences right from the waterman himself (via youtube videos).

I have embedded  some of my favorite Laird videos below. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I did.

Here’s one of my favorite quotes from one of the videos,

“Part of the way you’re able to actually make the right moves is by not trying to make the moves. Just let the moves happen. I think that’s one of the things I can say about the ocean and about my relationship with the ocean is nothing’s gonna teach you patience better than waiting for a wave.”

Laird Hamilton in real time: it doesn’t get much better than that!

I had been wanting, for quite some time, to buy a Laird t-shirt to show my enthusiasm and support for him. I just recently bought my first

“Blame Laird” Shirt

as well as two stickers. I was very excited to receive them in the mail!

BLAME LAIRD STORY

“It all started when some people told Laird about stickers that were posted at Malibu Surfrider, and a few other spots in Southern California that simply said BLAME LAIRD. Laird then started getting calls about them popping up on his native island of Kaua’i.

Of course maybe for the first few seconds the notion that someone was putting energy into ‘BLAMING’ Laird stung him a bit, but quickly we all started to get a great belly laugh from it. I can remember it being so easy to find Laird in any line up since he was the only person out there standing on his board.

For about five years I watched Laird mess around trying to find the right equipment to stand up paddle surf. I am not a surfer so I will not pretend to understand the frustration that some of the lay down surfers feel about the “sweepers”, but I do know that there is an adjustment period for any change, and this too shall pass.

Laird decided to take something that could have been perceived as a negative and just have some fun with it. After all if you are having any fun at all stand up paddling, then you too can BLAME LAIRD.”

That’s the description on Gabby Reece & Laird Hamilton’s site. I’ve embraced the idea and love that I can wear it around now.
