Lightened Up Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie

 January 23rd, National Pie Day

In honor of National Pie Day (1/23/17), I decided to try to lighten up one of my step-mom’s pumpkin pie recipes.  I’ve never tried to lighten up a recipe, so I was a bit nervous.  Her crust was a homemade crust with nuts incorporated.  I went with a reduced fat graham cracker crust instead.  I also tried to replace ingredients with lower fat options.  It was kind of fun playing around with the ingredients in My Fitness Pal and seeing the macros move up and down.  On a side note, I’ve been tracking my macros (carbs, fats, and proteins) to see if that will help me loose some weight.  But that will be a whole other blog post.

Macros per slice:

Protein 6 grams

Carbohydrates 22 grams

Fat 11 grams

Enjoy!
