Wondering how you can strategize your health, but still enjoy the holidays like Thanksgiving??

Here’s a sneak peek into our kitchen on Thanksgiving Day 2010…. so you can experience how as both natural athletes & whole foods nutrition coaches we celebrate REAL food for the holidays & the gift of health that offer us, while not beating down our body or waistline!

Check out Coach Damian’s own original You & Improved Coaching whole foods nutrition recipe for healthy whole grain pie crust that offers numerous health benefits to the body, including great energy as it’s made from TRUE whole grains unlike 99% of the products in store that claim they are whole grain and simply aren’t.

We enjoy the holidays more knowing we are making choices that not only taste good, but are bar none nutrition for the body – so we don’t have to pay for our choices the day after with extra trips to the gym or potential sickness down the road. Isn’t health one of the blessings we’re to be grateful for and CARE for in our choices this time of year? Here’s how!!

  • 3 cups buckwheat
  • 2 cups rolled oats

Run grains twice through clean coffee grinder on fine setting.

  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 tsp raw sea salt
  • 3/8 cups unrefined coconut oil (room temperature so it’s solid)
  • 3/8 cup organic butter
  • 5-6 Tbsp cold water

In a medium bowl, lightly stir together four & salt with a fork.
With Pastry Blender or knives, cut in oil and butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbles.
sprinkle in cold water a tablespoon at a time, mixing lightly with a fork until pastry holds together.
With hands, shape pastry into a ball, wrap with waxed paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

For a two crust pie, divide pastry into 2 pieces and shape each into a ball.
lay a large piece of suran wrap or wax paper on a flat surface. Lightly floured suran wrap or paper, with a rolling pin, roll ball into a 1/8 inch thick circle, 2 inches larger all around than the pie dish.
Lift saran wrap and turn upside down into pie dish. Fill as recipe directs.
