How Many Protein Grams in Pumpkin Pie?
Actually, quite a few. One slice contains close to 5 grams. Surprisingly, the Lemon Chiffon Pie contains about a gram more while pecan pie is also quite impressive in protein values.
The great thing about pumpkin as well as other fruit-based pies is that they are rich sources for dietary fiber. And when paired with protein - they are an unbeatable force for quelling hunger.
Another positive for pumpkin pie is that it's very low in calories.
They range from about 200 per slice from a pie which contains 8 servings - up to a little over 300 calories for deluxe versions.
And of course, the brand, the recipe - the filling and the crust, as well as the size of the pie all influence the energy values.

Fresh Fruit Salad Recipe
We're going to create another layered salad that's healthy and low in calories only this time, instead of using vegetables we're going to work with fruits. Start by adding a thick layer of sliced banana to the bottom of your serving bowl. Again, a clear serving dish will showcase the beauty of the fruit.
Next, add a layer of sliced strawberries. Next, add a layer of sliced kiwi, then a layer of pineapple tidbits. Allow the juice of the pineapple to flow over the existing layered fruit. Sprinkle on a bit of light or dark brown sugar. Cover the top of the pineapple tidbits with a thick layer of light whipped topping.
This fruit salad recipe is very amendable and nothing is set in stone. You can go on to add purple or green grapes, peaches, and even citrus based fruits such as oranges. Apples with the skins also look lovely in the mix.
