Thank you for the information,

Blue color of tongue can occur in cyanosis.

It occurs when the oxygen level in the blood gets less.

This usually occur in lungs & heart conditions.

When you do not have such diseases & you do not feel any breathing difficulty, this is unlikely to be cyanosis.

Food can cause blue color which you may not have noticed earlier.

If the pie is not well cooked or kept in warm condition for several hours, food poisoning / stomach upset can occur.

As there is no respiratory distress, you can wait to see whether it improves itself.

Take plenty of fluid to prevent dehydration.

If the color persists or if you develop any shortness of breath or other symptom, I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any further clarification.

If you are satisfied, please choose 4 / 5 rating / smiley face/Excellent/ACCEPT to compensate for my work and time.
