How to Make a Healthy Sweet Potato Pie

Posted on December 8th, 2014 by Discount Debbie

Sweet potato pie

It’s sweet potato season, in case you hadn’t noticed. You can get sweet potatoes at amazing prices right now. We happen to have a bunch because we grew sweet potatoes in our garden this year. So, it has been fun coming up with various recipes to use the yummy veggie.

This weekend my husband asked for a sweet potato pie. We had made one for Thanksgiving. One that was full of butter and sugar, among other things. All that sugar was part of our Thanksgiving exceptions. This time, I didn’t want to make an exception. Instead, I thought I’d give the same recipe (from Paula Deen) a healthier makeover. I cut the amount of sugar used and replaced it with honey and I substituted coconut oil for the butter. I did the same thing for the pie crust. I don’t think I have ever made pie crust by substituting coconut oil for butter. But, since the pie was just for our family, I thought I’d give it a try. (It worked!) So, here’s what I did.

Ingredients
2 cups peeled, cooked sweet potatoes
3/4 cups honey or maple syrup
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup milk
9 -inch unbaked pie crust

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

For the filling, using an electric hand mixer, combine the potatoes, the honey or maple syrup, the coconut oil, eggs, vanilla, salt, and spices. Mix thoroughly. Add the milk and continue to mix. Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for about an hour, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

pie

The coconut oil won’t give you a flaky crust; it’s crunchier. But we like it! And while my ideal “healthy” pie would substitute some other kind of flour for the white flour, overall it’s a healthier yummy rendition of an old time favorite!

How do you make old time favorites a little healthier?

Medical Must-Haves at Home

Posted on June 20th, 2014 by Discount Debbie

medical  must haves

There are some home medical investments that can lower your overall medical cost. Some of them are low price and some don’t cost a thing. Here are a few of my favorites.

Phone Numbers

If you have a family doctor or pediatrician keep these numbers on hand and in a high profile spot in your home. This also goes for poison control and emergency numbers. These numbers aren’t just vital for family safety. They save money. Poison control can let you know if a trip to the doctor is necessary or if there is something you can do at home. Calling the pediatrician can save you a trip to the office. Most doctors or nurse practitioners are willing to give advice and a time frame to know when you need to reconsider scheduling an appointment for your child.

Vital Sign Monitors

It’s important to have the older versions of these items because they are less expensive, aren’t digital, and don’t require batteries. At the very least have a stethoscope, thermometer, and blood pressure cuff. Keep these items with your first aid kit and know how to use them. They will save you trouble when it comes time to make those above mentioned phone calls. It also gives a sense of calm to know the actual facts of you or your child’s vitals when calling a health care professional.

Tylenol Free Medications

One of the highest risks of poison come from taking too much Tylenol. It seems to be in everything and when you’re sick it’s easy to accidentally overdose with. Get a lock box for you medications if you have young children and keep it high out of reach as an extra precaution. If you think someone has overdosed on Tylenol take them to the Emergency Room immediately. Tylenol poisoning show little or no symptoms, can last over five days, and can cause liver failure and fatality.

Wet Wipes

Baby wipes can be used as tissue. They are less expensive than regular tissue. They are also wet so they don’t tear up your nose. Last but not least they don’t break apart so they won’t iritate your nose further. Not to mention they can be used to clean anything, so it’s a good idea to have these on hand for more than just cleaning baby bums.


Thrifty Tip: Homemade Salsa

Posted on June 10th, 2014 by Discount Debbie

Of all the different types of cuisine, Mexican food has got to be my favorite. If we go out to eat, I tend to think about going to a Mexican food restaurant. And, although I cook a variety of types of food at home every day, I make tacos and fajitas quite a bit. And, one of the most fun (although not at all good for you) parts of a Mexican meal is chips and salsa, right? The combination is virtually irresistible, if you ask me! ;)

Well, our garden produced a bunch of yummy tomatoes, cilantro and peppers. Check these out! (Cilantro not pictured below.)

DSCN1522 (1024x768)

What was I supposed to do with these…make salsa, of course!

So, I got to work. I used about 7-8 tomatoes and chopped them up.

DSCN1498 (1024x768)

Then, I chopped up about half of an onion.

DSCN1500 (1024x768)

I also chopped up the peppers but didn’t take a picture. (Sorry, I forgot to. And, I was getting very excited about the salsa.) Then, I crushed two cloves of garlic and chopped a handful of fresh cilantro.

Next, I dumped everything into my food processor, added the juice from one lemon, salt, pepper, about a teaspoon of cumin, half a teaspoon of chili powder and a dash of cayenne pepper.

I ran it through the food processor for about two to three minutes. Then, I poured it into a bowl and let it chill in the refrigerator for about half an hour. (That was only because it was almost dinner time. We had leftovers that sat overnight and that batch was even better.)

Who needs store bought salsa when you can have such fresh, tasty and even kinda healthy salsa. If you can manage to eat it without tortilla chips, it really would be healthy. :) Good luck with that, though!

Thrifty Healthy Tip: Make Homemade Ginger Ale

Posted on June 5th, 2014 by Discount Debbie

A couple of days ago our three-year-old woke up with some sort of stomach bug. He’s still putting all kinds of things in his mouth. So, it could have been food, dirt or anything else that he seemed curious about at any given moment. In any case, we thought about getting ginger ale for him and then decided to just buy some ginger and make some instead!

I’ve never made ginger ale. But, there was no shortage of recipes for me to choose from or use as a base for my own. I used a recipe as a base, Here is what I ended up doing.

Ingredients:

2-3 Tbsp. fresh grated ginger
1/2-3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
1/4 cup maple syrup, honey or sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups water
6 cups carbonated water

It was so easy. I knew I needed about 1-2 inches of ginger. I didn’t measure. I just guesstimated and thought I’d err on the side of having more rather than less.

DSCN1473 (1024x768)

So, I grated the ginger.

DSCN1477 (1024x768)

Then, I put it into the pot with the 3 cups of water and salt. Bring to a boil. I also added the lemon juice but read afterwards to wait until you’ve removed the mixture from the heat to add the lemon juice. I also waited until I removed the pot from the heat to add the honey. If you are using sugar, then you need to add it while the mixture is boiling and make sure it is dissolved before removing from heat.

DSCN1480 (1024x768)

Let it cool and then add the carbonated water. Chill in the refrigerator or drink at room temperature.

DSCN1482 (1024x768)

I forgot to take a picture of the nice clean pitcher full of our homemade ginger ale. But, I do have evidence that the whole family liked it! Here’s our greasy, almost empty pitcher of the good stuff because we ALL thoroughly enjoyed it!
