Brussels Sprouts: Have you ever tried roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon? Delish.

Frizzy Hair: Frizzy hair is typically considered undesirable, but some frizz can give your hair body and texture — both good things. It’s time to embrace the frizz.

You may feel silly doing it, but it’s a quick way to get a touch of frizz.
