Walnut Pastry Crust

As a diabetic eating pastry is a pretty big no no, sure you can have it occasionally but not something you can eat each day, i found this recipe for a Walnut Pastry Crust which i found on the net.

For a person with type 2 diabetes Walnuts are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids which include reducing inflammation and providing a level of protection from chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and arthritis. Often people with diabetes have high triglycerides and low HDL levels. 
Omega-3 fatty acids can help lower triglycerides and raise HDL, so eating walnuts or foods high in omega-3s may help people with diabetes.

A quarter cup of walnuts provides about 165 calories, 3.8 grams of protein, 3.4 grams of carbohydrate, 16 grams of fat, and 1.7 grams of fiber. Walnuts are also good sources of copper, manganese, vitamin B1 and vitamin B6. 

The recipe is pretty easy as you can see

Walnut Pastry

1/4 to 1/2 c parmesan cheese -- shredded or the canned powder. 

Add walnuts and parmesan cheese into a food processor
