When making chicken pie etc use phyllo pastry instead of puff pastry or short crust. It tastes just as good and is far healthier!
I absolutely love pies of any sort, and this way you can go half and half if you want or just use the phyllo pastry, which in turn also adds a nice bit of crunch while having more than 80g fat less per 100g of puff pastry

A can of canned puree pumpkin contains more than 7 times the daily value of vitamin A and has 7 grams of fiber. When making pumpkin pie use Pumpkin Puree as it is 100% pumpkin while pie filling or mix is pumpkin PLUS sugar. Dont forget to make your pie shell as thin as possible. Have a small slice AND FREEZE THE REST.
I'm putting this under motivation because it was a FANTASTIC motivator! I put my favorite pie recipe [Dixie Pie] in the nutritional calculator and it became MUCH LESS favorable when I found out the calories and fat content for ONE piece! Even if I divided the pie into 15 small pieces, it still had: 344 calories and 23.6 grams of fat! This pie suddenly lost ALL its appeal! 40
