Don't Be a Turkey - Part 2 - Pie

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving dinner without pie.  Pumpkin pie is your best choice at around 200 calories per slice.  Pecan pie is also a Thanksgiving favorite, however be prepared to choke down 450-500 slice.  Yikes! 

If you are making the pie, consider the following healthy alterations:
  • use a smaller crust 
  • use a graham cracker crust 
  • skip the crust and make a dessert with pumpkin filling with cool whip topping
  • mix the pumpkin with vanilla pudding to make the pie less dense
  • use a sugar substitute in place of sugar
Remember, Thanksgiving is just one day and you'll be ok having dessert.  Use the above substitutions, avoid high calorie choices like pecan pie or just use portion control and enjoy the flavor!
