Here, you'll find a short list of foods that you really ought to incorporate into your diet—because, frankly, their health benefits are through the roof. But rather than leaving it up to you to figure out what to do with them (sprinkle them on your cereal? push them around on your plate?), we've combined these wonder foods into nine dishes that taste great—as in snack-in-front-of-the-TV great, favorite-weeknight-supper great. Because we're not your mother. We don't care if you put your elbows on the table. But we do know that eating well is one of the nicest things you can do for yourself, and if you can recruit your taste buds to be your ally, you may just discover that it's fun to be good.
Smith & Cult’s ‘Cut The Mullet’ is an energetic sky-blue shade perfect for day, parties or the latest gallery opening. The creamy formula glides on to a glossy opaque finish - use two coats for the truest color. Free from formaldehyde, toluene and di-butyl. Founder Dineh Mohajer and her sister Pooneh actually mixed the now-iconic hue by hand to match Dineh’s new pair of Charles David sandals, and the rest is history.

Chili peppers hide the seeds of joy inside a jolting burn. Hot peppers are like that: After the initial shock of heat comes a release of endorphins, and after the pain, your body is suddenly alive, sparkling, bright. Your eyes tear, you cough, you choke, you cannot believe what you have put in your mouth, you are on fire, and then you are flooded with happiness. This is why Mexican, Indian, and Thai food cheers people.
