Today, while out to lunch with. my son and mother-in-law I was considering having the key lime pie for dessert, after my broiled salmon and steamed veggies, and decided to do a little math before placing an order.
I googled 'calories in 1 serving key lime pie' and got my answer. 340 calories in 1/10 of a 9" pie.
NOBODY cuts a pie into 10 slices. So, I estimated the calories at 500 per serving, in this restaurant.
That is equal to 55 minutes running on the treadmill, 65 minutes cross-country hiking, 75 minutes walking the dog, and 90-120 minutes of any hard-earned activity like housework or gardening.
I skipped the dessert.
