Dear Kata
In general, pies are high in fat because of the type of meat used for the filling and the pastry. According to the SA Food Tables a savoury pie made with short crust pastry provides on average 1352 kJ and 23.2 g of fat, plus 96 mg of cholesterol per 100g. Brown bread provides 930 kJ, 2 g of fat and 0 g cholesterol per 100g. Thus when we compare equal weights of a meat pie and brown bread, the brown bread is the healthier option with a lower energy, fat and cholesterol content. Eating pies can increase your total energy, fat and cholesterol intake considerably, so have them in moderation.

Oh my goodness! Give them up. They are laden with fat - cheap meat and pastry. I bet you only eat these because they are convenient. Prepare steak for yourself at home and make yourself a low gi sandhwich with salad to take to work. Make a chicken salad with low fat salad dressing and rye rolls. Delicious. It is all in the planning. Have your pie on a Friday if you must.
Do you have weight to lose?
