Have you ever really thought about how you can make your beauty routine tasty with great healthy foods?  You win on both fronts.

Take a look at what Kimberly Synder offers up to include in your diet so you can look good while you eat well too.

* Cabbage - vitamin C brightens skin and repairs damaged skin and heals collagen.  Has more vitamin C than oranges.  How much to eat?  Try a few servings a week.  You can add some shredded cabbage to your salads or saute it with spices as a side dish.

* Sunflower seeds - are high in vitamin E and prevent cellular damage.  Helps with maintenance, growth and repair of tissues and delays aging.  While we enjoy the roasted seeds, it's the raw ones that give the full beauty benefit.

* Avocado - high in vitamin E and heart healthy fat that keeps you satisfied and moisturizes your skin from the inside out.  Prevents fatigue, anxiety and depression.  This fat feeds your brain and stimulates healthy functioning.  This fat helps us absorb the fat soluble vitamins like A and D.

From Denny:  The controversy of legalizing marijuana has raged for decades.  Cancer and eye patients have long championed the legalization for medical use.

Americans now approve of legalization by 50 percent to those opposed as 47 percent.  This is the first time in polling history the numbers have been this strong for approval.

How do the numbers break down as far as sections of the country?

More men than women approve.
More Westerners than Easterners approve.
More young people than old approve.

Comfort Food From Louisiana: Tailgating Recipes: New Orleans Ugly Dog Saloon BBQ Chili Beans: From Denny: Check out this recipe to make bean style chili for a huge crowd - just perfect for tailgating during football season - and affordable.

If you want you can always add meat for a heartier version but this recipe is all about the spices and vegetarian since the majority of their menu is meat.
This recipe comes from the amusing folks in New Orleans at the Ugly Dog Saloon in the Warehouse District, a few blocks from the Convention Center (401 Andrew Higgins Blvd, New Orleans, Louisiana). Be sure to pay them a visit when you visit the Crescent City!
