St Pete Personal Trainer Approved Low Carb Gravy
Happy Tuesday from your St Pete Personal Trainer for over 40 bodies ! I cannot even believe that Thanksgiving 2017 is in less than 2 days. One of the things for which I am most thankful is the crazy success of the Fitness St Pete I Tierra Verde Fitness brand since it’s launch earlier this year. To say thank you and give back to our amazing subscribers, blog readers and social media followers, I have been crazy committed to help busy St Pete & Tierra Verde men and women over 40 maintain not gain this holiday season.
Thanks to the newest addition to our Team, Coach Pete, I’ve had lots of extra time to create more content along with our 21 Day Hot For The Holidays Challenge starting Nov 27th and I have really appreciated all of your wonderful feed back from our facebook lives, blog posts and emails and have been working hard to create the content you have asked for.
One of the biggest requests has been Holiday Recipes and snack ideas. I’ve got 5 of my fav coming up for the members of our FREE, Private Facebook Community Transform St Pete tomorrow for “What’s Cooking Wednesday” but we were talking about gravy at this morning’s group sessions so I dug this one out early
We have a lot of clients and group personal training members who are phenomenal cooks … and then there are people like me who like their recipes, quick, easy, tasty and low maintenance. In that vein, here is my go to low carb gravy recipe!

Low Carb Gravy
- 2 Tablespoons bacon grease from nitrate free bacon
- 2 cups finely diced onion (from about 1 ½ onions)
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1 Tbs Sea Salt
- 1 tbs Black Pepper
- Arrowroot Powder: About a teaspoon per cup of gravy. Mix in a little at a time and mix well to get the desired thickness
- 4 c Drippings from your turkey, skimmed of fat ( i use a strainer to separate the drippings from the fat)
**** If you don’t have enough drippings for 4 cups, you can add broth or stock to make up the difference
**** If you aren’t making a turkey, you can substitute turkey broth or stock instead instead of turkey drippings and add .
- If using turkey drippings, strain drippings into a large bowl to remove any fat.
- Add butter, salt and black pepper to a saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted.
- Lower heat and whisk in arrow root stirring constantly for 3-4 minutes.
- Slowly whisk in drippings. Continue to whisk to prevent clumping and until gravy thickens.
- Remove from heat and pour into a gravy bowl. Serve immediately.

P.S. Have you met Heather, the inspiration for our Hot For The Holidays Challenge and Member of the year for 2016?
“I joined because I was fed up with the ups and downs of extreme dieting. I was scared because I was not sure I could handle the workouts. I lost 6” and 4 lbs during the Holidays !
I was used to starving myself to lose weight, so at first the meal plan felt like I was cheating. But it is so doable and realistic way to live. It is not a diet…..it is a meal plan for life!
I have more endurance and I am starting to be able to push my workouts to the next level.”
