How many of you didn't dare to make my sinful walnut tart because you were worried that it was calorie-rich?
My love affair with walnuts started when my mother started putting celery sticks filled with crushed walnuts and cream cheese in my lunch box...she suffered from Psoriasis and was concerned I could inherit it so filled me full of whole foods and nuts. My skin has definitely benefitted. My only problem at the time of her walnut phase was that it also coincided with her carrot juice phase...she had a food processor sent to NZ ( this was the 70's!!) and would juice about a kilo of carrots every day. So I had great skin but rather spooky orange hand and foot palms.
Back to walnuts...
I have just been researching into this wonderful nut and it has much more than calories going for it.
So why not improve your health now and take a handful of cardio-protective, anti-inflammatory omega-3 walnuts...take the time to break a few open on the kitchen bench with your children, serve them a crisp cut apple with toasted walnuts....or a piece of walnut tart!!
I'm going to make the most of this walnut season and make my mother's Waldorf Salad for dinner.
For a warming autumn dessert ask your partner to give you a walnut oil body rub.......
