For the pie filling I used the last three drops of olive oil (literally), cooked sweet potato (I did not peel mine but you could to make it more refined), a tea spoon of coconut cream I had left in the fridge and a splash of glutenous rice flour. It made the yummiest pie topping. It was a rustic pie but amazing fresh out of the oven. It's worth trying.
For me, I find a lower fat diet with carbs mainly from whole-grains, fruit and vegetables seems to be the best way for me to manage my weight. I know there are people who find that low-carb, high fat is the best for them. These articles make for interesting reading:
