Thanksgiving Tip of the Day

While everyone loves some good ol’ pie for dessert on Thanksgiving, it is very important to plan your calorie count accordingly if you want to incorporate this calorie filled treat into your Thanksgiving Day meal.  A single serving of pie is 1/8 of a 9-inch pie, which is about the size of a standard light bulb.  A serving of apple pie contains approximately 300 calories, pumpkin pie has approximately 323 calories, and by far the unhealthiest option is pecan pie, which comes in with 456 calories!  If you are baking homemade pie, try using 1/3 less sugar than called for, and replace evaporated milk with low-fat or skim milk.  Lastly, skip the whipped topping or sauce on top of the pie if you want to be a true calorie counting warrior.
