Happy #NationalNutDay, a wholesome celebration of the humble nut
Bust it with friends and family on this most auspicious day

So thank you to the bored PR/Marketing genius that came up with today, National Nut Day.
What better day to imbibe the health benefits of our favorite family of legumes? What better day to look over the peanut, walnut, Brazil nut (technically a seed) and pecan and appreciate them for all their glory.
