Healthy Monday...Sorta

This Healthy Monday post is all about pies. Before you scoff at my idea of "healthy" though, hear me out... :)

I think if I could start a new business, it would be pie-grams. Little telegram pies with messages on the crust. No one would probably buy them and I'm pretty sure I would end up eating all of them before I ever got to sell one, but I love a good pie. Some might argue that pie is only good served à la mode during the hot summer months, but I think it works well as a hearty soul-warming food in the winter too. And if you're watching your calories, you can have your pie and eat it too. You just have to have a little pie! These single serving pie's-in-a-jar are awesome ways to curb your sweet tooth without expanding your waist line. Plus, don't you think they are cute enough to act as favors for a shower? You can even freeze them ahead of time! Get the lowdown on how to make them and different recipes on Our Best Bites!

These pies are adorable, delicious, and super easy to make! I've actually made them as chicken pot pies too. It's amazingly convenient to have pie (or chx pot pie) in the freezer and ready to go when you want a little treat (or dinner). I made a batch for a girls night out where I topped the lids with cute, girly fabric and tied with raffia. Adorable and delicious!
