Sweet Potato Pie

After the meal has settled in and you’re rubbing your stomach, a slice of pie can put you into a food coma. Although we love to brag about this moment at the end of dinner, beware that one slice can be as much as 340 calories. If you can turn away from it altogether, do it. Taking a small slice — which we know is no fun — is also an option. A tablespoon of whipped cream also adds 8 calories. Walking time: 3 hours and 50 minutes.
