Re: Pumpkin Pie

But, I would guess that the problem you'll run into with your typical pumpkin pie isn't with the pumpkin, it's with the copious amounts of sugar that get mixed in with it. Find a good recipe to make your own without sugar, and try to compensate by using more good spices or something else.

Re: Pumpkin Pie

Orrrr you could just eat pie. It's Thanksgiving. I don't think anyone ever got fat or diabetic eating a slice of pumpkin pie once a year.

I guess I'm being the devil on your shoulder here, and I AM quite good at justifying, I'll admit it (sugar addict and all), but I think I can truly say that a piece of pumpkin pie won't kill you. If you really and truly think it will send you spiraling into the depths of addiction, maybe eat some sweet potatoes with cinnamon instead. For me, being the one eating a bowl of sweet potatoes with cinnamon (when I already use sweet potatoes several times per week as my PWO meal) while everyone else is enjoying pie at a family holiday gathering is the fast track to getting sick of a 100% clean diet.

OK. Practicality. What I'm doing for thanksgiving is this: Not wasting my time on stuff I don't love that takes up a lot of space in my stomach. Conveniently, this happens to include rolls, stuffing (YES I KNOW), regular potatoes. This does not include sweet potatoes with marshmallows, vegetables, and yes, a little pumpkin pie.

Happy holidays.

Re: Pumpkin Pie

If you eat even one bite of pie the world will come unhinged. Oh wait, it already is. Eat a piece and have a happy Thanksgiving!

Re: Pumpkin Pie

I think I am going to shoot for eating at least half a pumpkin pie this year, and 4 full plates of food.

Re: Pumpkin Pie

I'm pretty sure you can either do Crossfit and be extremely healthy, or have pumpkin pie - but never, EVER both.

Wait....

Eh. I try, if I'm going to have something with sugar in it, to make it from scratch. That way I know I'm at least getting quality ingredients and not including all the retarded preservatives and chemicals and such.
