This pumpkin pie was a treat given to me by one of my Pilates clients after my first lumpectomy last November. And yes, it's not a cancer fighting food. It's a celebratory one.

I like this recipe because it works for the child (or adult) who is fruit averse, or generally averse to anything unusual, but who would benefit from having a protein rich breakfast or snack to replace a sugary carb load.
