Ate some walnuts with my porridge.  Today is National Walnut Day in America.  My sis and I celebrated today by eating some in our bowls of porridge.  Well, to be honest with you, I didn't even know about National Walnut Day.  My sis wanted to have walnuts in our porridge because they have a lot of nutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants!  Walnut is a superfood!

So, how notorious is walnut?
