A Pi Day Treat!

While there isn’t a direct concept of “gut healthy pies” in the culinary world, there are certainly many types of delicious foods that bake wonderfully into pie-form, and are beneficial for your gut health! These foods can be incorporated into pies or pie-like dishes to create tasty and gut-friendly meals. Here are some of our favorite examples:


whole grain fruit pie

Fruit Pies with Whole Grain Crust:

Use whole grain flour for the crust of your fruit pies. Whole grains contain fiber, which is essential for promoting good gut health by supporting regular bowel movements and feeding beneficial gut bacteria.




vegetable pieVegetable Pies:

Pies filled with a variety of colorful vegetables like spinach, kale, bell peppers, onions, and tomatoes are rich in fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants, all of which are beneficial for gut health.
