How To Make An Apple Pie The Healthy Way

Who doesn’t love apple pie? It used to be an ALL TIME FAVORITE dessert of mine, but its been years really since I’ve had it. It kind of just fell into the back drop of foods that I no longer engaged with because it was typically loaded with sugar and other junk.

This entree was always one of my favs. It was always my “go to” meal when eating out, but I always felt guilty eating it because I knew it wouldn’t help me in my situation of being an overweight little girl. I learned how to watch what I ate at a very early age, and I’m actually so incredibly grateful for that experience! It’s fueled my passion for comforting, healthy, lifestyle foods.

With the healthier food changes I’ve made since my teen years, it’s been YEARS since I’ve indulged in this comforting entree.

Until now, at least πŸ˜‰
