tom-and-jerry

A famous Christmas Eve tradition is combining the rich delicious drink called a “Tom and Jerry” with a rich and delicious soup called “Oyster Stew”. Many people feel they won’t be able to indulge in the not so healthy treat but what if you can?

Here is a healthy version that tastes so good and no one will even know they eating “healthy”.

Here is the delicious drink called “Tom and Jerry’s” 

and the famous Holiday Treat

“Oyster Stew”

INGREDIENTS
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 large onion, diced large
2 cloves of garlic
5 stalks of celery, diced large
¼ cup of grass-fed butter or ghee, cut into pieces
2 large white potatoes, cubed
1 teaspoon of black pepper, cracked
1 tablespoon sage, parsley and rosemary
3 dozen oysters in their liquid (if they are in the shell, start the recipe at the *)
2 cups of half and half or coconut half and half (you can also use full fat coconut milk)
cilantro for garnish

Directions:

  1. Melt your coconut oil over medium high heat, in a large soup pot. Toss in the celery, garlic and onions and sauté for 5-8 minutes, stirring the whole time. (If they need a bit more oil add a bit more coconut oil. As soon as the veggies are translucent and fragrant stir in the butter. After the butter has melted, add your oyster juice and water to equal 8 cups. Next toss in the diced potatoes, black pepper and herbs and wait till your pot just starts to simmer and turn down the heat to medium low.
  2. When the potatoes just start to get tender, add the coconut half and half. Bring the pot back to a simmer, stirring the whole time.
  3. Last put in the oysters and cook for 3-4 minutes until they just start to curl. (This is an important time to watch out as you can easily overcook and get tough chewy oysters.) Fish out an oyster and chop it into a few pieces and see if they are cooked to your liking.

Fit Chic Pumpkin Gingerbread with Maple Frosting:

gingerbread with maple frosting

This is a great recipe for a wonderful thanksgiving breakfast or dessert! It is very easy and it tastes delicious!

Ingredients:

Cake:

1 cup pumpkin puree

1 cup Almond Butter

1 Tablespoon of grade B Maple Syrup

1/4 cup honey

2 large eggs

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon cloves

1/4 teaspoon cardamom

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

Frosting:

1/3 cup grass-fed butter

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Garnish with Pecans 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. In a medium sized bowl, combine all the cake ingredients and mix thoroughly to combine. Pour into an 8×8 oven-safe baking dish. Bake until completely cooked through, about 30 minutes.

3. Place the butter and coconut oil in a microwave-safe dish and heat until softened, but not melted. The length of time you need to nuke it will depend on the temperature in your house, so start with 30-second increments and repeat until you get the right consistency. Place the coconut butter and oil in a large mixing bowl, then add the honey, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Beat until fluffy with a standing or hand mixer. If you don’t have a mixer, go at it with a whisk… and good luck to you!

4. Allow the cake to cool completely. Completely. Dollop a spoonful of frosting onto each square and top with a nut.

5.  When all squares are frosted, cover lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate. The frosting will firm up in the fridge and the texture transforms into a confection. Serve the cake squares chilled or at room temperature.

A Fit Chic Birthday Treat …

homemade-rainbow-chip-frosting-7

One of my favorite treats as a child was Rainbow Chip Frosting. I could literally pound a whole jar in one to two sittings. I can’t begin to imagine what that would do to me know, but those childhood favs still bring back the warm fuzzies!

So for my birthday I have come up with a healthier alternative to my favorite Birthday treat.

Now this birthday I can relieve one of my childhood favorites without it ruining my birthday with a sugar hang over.

Ingredients: 

1 package of White Chocolate Chips

4 different colors of food coloring

1 cup organic powdered sugar

2 sticks of grass-fed butter, room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1-2 tablespoons vanilla coconut creamer

Directions: 

Separate Chocolate Chips into 4 ramekins and place food coloring in each so they are 4 different colors.

Place the butter and sugar in the bowl use a hand mixture to combine the butter and sugar in a bowl, on low speed, until combined. Then increase speed to medium and mix for about three minutes, or until the frosting is smooth and airy.

Add in vanilla, and cream/milk of choice, until you get the right consistency. Then place the white chocolate chips and stir so that they are mixed throughout the frosting.

Happy Birthday To Me!
