Description

Not only do I like pie, but I want it to be healthy. This pie is nut-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and seed-free because I want kids with those allergies to be able to eat it, like my brother. I dedicate this recipe to my brother.

Why is healthy cooking important to you?  Healthy cooking is important to me because it protects our bodies. If you don't eat healthy food, you will get sick and you might not have enough energy to do fun stuff. I like to eat healthy foods because my tummy can hurt if I eat too much unhealthy foods.
