Try This, Not That: Frozen Pot Pie


Both pies are almost evenly matched.  The Marie Callender’s pie, has slightly more fat and calories, but less cholesterol and sodium.  
So, why eat the Swanson’s pot pie over the Marie Callender’s?  Portion Control.  
Pot pies are rarely shared.  If one person were to consume the whole Marie Callender’s pot pie, the calories would increase to 870!  For this reason alone, the Swanson’s pie is the better option.
