Are you in pie mode? Round amazing looking desert things. You know pies. You love pies. But what’s the deal with eating pie?
Reality is that some classic holiday pies like Pecan are well over a whopping 500 calories a serving. One way to not completely kill your diet is to have a smaller piece. Another idea to cut the calorie hit is to pick a fruit pie instead.

A Tip To Lower The Carbs
I have successfully swapped out sugar and replaced it with Lakanato in many dessert recipes and my family couldn’t tell the difference.
Another tip is to use super-ripe fruit without a bunch of sugar added. Sometimes the produce aisle is not helpful for this, but you can try a mix of dry fruit and frozen fruit. Both of those options are healthier than canned fruit filling from the store.
A healthy swap out when making your own crust is to use either olive oil or coconut oil.
Use almond flour crust instead of traditional white flour. There are several recipes for almond flour pie crusts. The flour, sweetener, salt, add-ins, fat, and even egg are all customizable, up to a point. This is pretty convenient, so you can often make it with what you have on hand.
Any tipping of the cooking process towards the healthier side gives you room to enjoy without as many adverse effects on your health journey.
Here is a quick almond flour crust recipe
