Eat, drink, and be merry,
for tomorrow we may diet.
Uh oh. Disaster hits! You're stuck inside the house due to a hurricane warning. Swine flu has got you down and out. Or a quake hits and you're trapped and waiting to be rescued. Here's the deal. You've got bottled water--all you need. And you can choose one type of sweet pie (a dessert kind, no chicken or beef pot pies, sorry) to be your savior till you get out of this mess. What's your choice?...
Apple? Berry? Chocolate? Custard? Pecan? Pumpkin? Sweet Potato? Remember, there are dozens and dozens of tasty pies. Choose one. Warning: The answer can be tricky because pies do contain lots of good for you ingredients. And some are healthier than others.
Whoever chooses the most nutritious pie to get you through this hypothetical plight and provides the best argument (feel free to give your reason(s) why you believe it is the most nutritious) will win a free copy of one of my books: The Healing Powers of Chocolate, The Healing Powers of Vinegar, or The Healing Powers of Olive Oil. Good luck!
