Traveling is all fun and games until you’re hangry in an airport terminal and haven’t had a full night’s sleep in three days. Fortunately, these travel hacks (directly from the Bulletproof team!) will make your next trip 100% easier. From combating jet lag to staying fueled between flights, here are just a few ways you can bring Bulletproof products anywhere.
1. Bring premium coffee on the road
Bulletproof Founder Dave Asprey pre-grinds his Bulletproof Coffee Beans and stashes them in an empty KetoPrime container. Then, he makes cowboy coffee (aka the reverse French press method) using just a cup of hot water. Watch the video below to see how the magic happens.
2. Freeze Cold Brew to get through security checks
Bulletproof Coffee Cold Brew is great for lasting energy on the go, without the sugar crash. But you can’t bring fluids over 3 ounces through the airport security check. Dreams: crushed? Nope. Just freeze it. Frozen liquid items are allowed as long as they are frozen solid when presented for screening.
Pro tip: Pop Bulletproof Coffee Cold Brew in the freezer the night before your trip. Bring it with you to the airport in a sealed bag. Then, bask in smooth, creamy goodness with every icy cold sip.
3. Use Sleep Mode to get your Zzzs in any time zone
“Sleep Mode is a must for hotels,” says Tara S. on the Bulletproof Product team. Why? Sleep Mode is a drug-free way to stay on top of your circadian rhythms and sleep better, faster. That’s really, really important when you’re on the road, flying from coast to coast and/or dealing with uncomfortable hotel beds. Learn more about Sleep Hacks.
4. Freeze your Collagen Protein Bars before you hit the road
Throw Bulletproof Collagen Protein Bars in the freezer the night before you hit the road for a keto-friendly travel snack that withstands the bumpiest of rides. Snacks can make or break your travel plans. Fortunately, Collagen Protein Bars are totally delicious and made with ingredients that will ACTUALLY keep you satisfied, like quality fats and grass-fed collagen protein.
5. Avoid jet lag with KetoPrime and Unfair Advantage
Bulletproof KetoPrime and Unfair Advantage are awesome energy supplements on their own — but they’re even better when you take them together, especially when you fly. High altitude plus low air pressure can make you feel tired and unfocused. That’s because your mitochondria (the power plants of your cells) aren’t getting enough oxygen, so they ramp down energy production and you feel blah.
KetoPrime and Unfair Advantage are the ultimate jet lag hack. KetoPrime contains oxaloacetate, a metabolic compound that supports your mitochondria to get you back on track. Unfair Advantage helps repair your mitochondria and gives you an energy boost.
6. Detox and boost your immune system with Glutathione Force
Travel can be stressful, and sometimes food on the road is … questionable at best. Glutathione is the master antioxidant your body uses to combat inflammation, infection and toxins. Take it when you’re traveling to give your immune system the support it needs.
7. Bring Bulletproof anywhere with Collagen and Brain Octane oil GoPacks
It’s easy to stay Bulletproof on the go with travel-friendly, single-serve packs of Brain Octane oil and grass-fed Collagen Protein. GoPacks are made for travel so you can throw them in your bag without worrying about leaks or messes.
Brain Octane oil is the all-around best MCT oil for brain-boosting, fat-burning ketone energy. Collagen Protein supports hydrated skin and strong bones and joints. Here’s how to use them on the road:
Brain Octane GoPacks:
- Drizzle over food when you’re dining out for a quick boost of energizing ketones
- Add to a travel mug of coffee, close the lid and shake it up for fat-burning, brain-boosting coffee (We recommend a Bulletproof Travel Mug)
- Use a handheld frother to blend it into your favorite beverages
Collagen Protein GoPacks:
- Support your skin, joints and bones on the go
- Stir into hot or cold beverages, oatmeal or soup — it’s flavorless and dissolves easily
- Combine with Brain Octane oil for collagen protein benefits with a ketone boost
8. Power through your fast with Brain Octane oil
Some members of the Bulletproof team prefer to fast on travel days. That means eating within a specific time period and fasting the rest of the time.
Why skip breakfast? There are a ton of benefits to intermittent fasting, like weight loss and improved brain function — but the big key for travel is that it may help your body adjust to time differences and jet lag.
Fasting also means you don’t have to think about food while flying. Phew! Brain Octane oil is a satiating healthy fat that curbs cravings, so it’s a great hack to hold you over between meals. Quality fats give you energy and keep you full without switching on digestion, so you’ll still get all the benefits of fasting without feeling HANGRY.
Pro tip: Drink Bulletproof Coffee instead of eating breakfast. Brain Octane oil + grass-fed butter or ghee + coffee = a creamy, satisfying drink that keeps you full, focused and energized for hours. Get the recipe here.
9. Use Coconut Charcoal to combat the effects of kryptonite foods
Let’s say you overindulged during a night out. Maybe the hotel buffet wrecked your stomach. Or maybe you just need gas relief — fast. Coconut Charcoal is your detox shortcut. It traps toxins and flushes them out of your body naturally.
Plus, it’s gentle, fast-acting and made from 100% coconuts. It’s perfect when you’re on the road and need fast relief so you can get back to feeling awesome.
