Healthy Pie Recipes: 6 Good-for-You Savory & Sweet Pies

I recall the nursery rhyme about four and twenty blackbirds. And of course the expression “American as apple pie.” If you were more into math than I was, the word might also evoke the formula for the circumference of a circle. And if you were a rock and roller, you might be humming a chorus about driving your Chevy to the levee. But two ideas that don’t typically go with pie are “plant-based” and “healthy.” The History of Pie Most cultures have some version of a pie, whether sweet or savory. It’s hard to know for sure who baked the first pie (dough and round baking dishes aren’t exactly the most enduring archeological artifacts).

Fermented Foods: What are they and how can they boost your health? Tell someone that they’re about to eat a substance that started out as a vegetable but was then processed by bacteria and yeast into an alcohol or acid, and you shouldn’t be surprised if they turn up their nose or run away screaming.

But that’s exactly what fermentation is. Humans have harnessed and refined the process for a long time, and some of our favorite healthy foods are the result of this legacy of experimentation.
