Healthy Recipe of the Month

Prune & Walnut Log
Healthy treat: Prune-Walnut Log

Place the following ingredients into a Thermamix or other strong blender:

500 g pitted prunes

150 g cashew nuts (or macadamia nuts)

juice of 1 lemon

80 g pitted dates (or 1/2 tsp stevia/natural sweetener)

After mixing it into a paste, spread it over a sheet of baking paper, stick 150 – 200 g walnuts on top (press into paste) and roll the paper
 into a roll, which ends up looking like a ‘salami sized’ roll of about 5 – 8 cm diameter.

Place in fridge and cut into slices of your preferred thickness. Yummy and makes sure that your digestions works like clockwork. Much healthier than biscuits!

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
