Healthy Living: Pie Wars

On Thanksgiving there are a lot of foods that have to be apart of the meal like turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and a pie. Thanksgiving only happens once a year, so you have to have a piece of pie. Choosing between your grandmother’s pumpkin pie and your aunt’s pecan pie can be difficult.

Here is a tip that can help you choose between the two pies.

In comparing a slice of pecan and pumpkin pie, both 1/8th of a 9-inch round pan of a traditional pie recipe, pumpkin pie comes out on top calorie wise. A slice of pumpkin pie has 316 calories, while a slice of the same size of pecan pie has 503 calories. When looking at the amount of carbohydrates in both pies, a slice of pumpkin pie has 41 grams of carbohydrates and pecan pie has 64 grams of carbohydrates.
