As holiday time approaches those of us who are striving for healthy eating cower with fear of holiday eating. I am a firm believer that you need to enjoy your holiday and realize it is just one day. Enjoy but do not overindulge. One way that I am trying not to overindulge this holiday season is to healthen (I know this is not a word…but I am going with it) up a few dishes. One of the favorites in our house, especially for my six year old, is pumpkin pie. I had been cruising around the internet looking for a Low Glycemic pumpkin pie that wouldn’t taste like….well poop. I played around with a few items and came up with this tasty little number. I will put this disclaimer out there the recipe I am posting is not 100% the one that I taste tested…I made mine dairy free because I am lactose intolerant so I wrote those modifications for those who are vegan or need to be dairy free. Although it takes a long time to bake…it was super easy to prepare and I hope you enjoy.
