FOOD HOLIDAY: Pi Day
Mathematically, March 4th is Pi Day: 3.14. As we learned in high school geometry, the Greek symbol is used in mathematics to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, a constant that begins with 3.14159.
Food folks have co-opted Pi Day, turning it into Pi[e] Day and recommending that one celebrate it with a piece of pie.
This might be the time to include one of the numerous “Top 10 Pies” lists; but this year, we have a twist: a list of the 16 worst pies in terms of calories, fat and sugar, as determined by EatThisNotThat.com. You can read the explanations for each pie here.
The worst-for-you pie is #1, the best of the group is #16.
1. Pecan Pie
The choice is yours. Happy Pi Day.
Oh…and there is a National Pie Day. It’s on January 23rd.
