What is Your Food Horoscope? December 30, 2016
The stars have spoken, and they’re telling you to get cooking! If we were you, we’d listen. Continue reading to learn how the forces of your zodiac sign interact with your stomach and how this can dictate your appetite…
(March 21 – April 19)
You have a big, fiery appetite and tend to crave spicy, hot food. However, at the end of the day, you can always be found reaching for those classic comforts. The steak and potatoes combo is always a winner in your book, especially this Pan-Seared Steak with Herb Butter, Roasted Potatoes, and Green Bean Saute.
(July 23 – August 22)
If you had the choice, you’d opt for one large meal in addition to several smaller snacks throughout the day. You prefer cooking when the whole family is around. From parents and siblings to cousins and aunts — more is always merrier for you. To please even the pickiest of eaters, you choose simple family-favorites like this “Little Ears” Pasta with Baby Broccoli and Pesto.
(November 22 – December 21)
A Sagittarius is typically well traveled, which means you choose exotic, spicy foods. You also love experimenting with unique cuisines and can be found dancing around the kitchen while waiting for your Shawarma-Spiced Pork to sear.
(October 23 – November 21)
If there’s one kitchen item you need at all times, it’s a stacked spice drawer. No question about it. Cumin, coriander, turmeric, ginger… Scorpios experiment with them all in dishes like this Herby Pan-Seared Chicken. You cook balanced, wholesome dinners but still somehow work up an appetite for midnight snacks.
(January 20 – February 18)
If you’re not a full fledged vegetarian, you definitely go meat-free several days per week to enjoy hearty, plant-based dishes like these Roasted Cauliflower and Squash Tacos. You’re not afraid to invite new, unique flavors into your kitchen and can often be found sipping on a cup of joe to keep that energy up. Like Scorpios, you have a soft spot for late-night munching.
(February 19 – March 20)
Pisces are visual, creative thinkers, which explains why you’re often experimenting in the kitchen with recipes like this Red Rice Bowl. Whenever possible, you invite a large group over for dinner. In fact, most of your best memories revolve around home cooked food.
(December 22 – January 19)
Mindfulness is the name of the game for Capricorns, which is why you always prefer quality over quantity. You’re devoted to the ritual of a home-cooked meal and love nothing more than to return home from work or school and whip up something as wholesome and delicious as this Bistro Salmon and Lentils.
(April 20 – May 20)
For you, home cooking is a profound source of pleasure and fun. You even love listening to music while stirring, seasoning, and sauteing! But the best part of the whole meal for a Taurus is the dessert. For you, sweet always beats savory, and these luscious beet brownies hold a special place in your heart.
(August 23 – September 22)
Since Virgos are especially health-conscious, you fill up your plate with lean proteins and a generous serving of colorful, fresh produce. In fact, this Parmesan-Crusted Chicken with Roasted Sweet Potato, Cranberry, and Arugula Salad was practically written for you. In an effort to reduce food waste, you find creative ways to re-purpose leftovers in regular “clean out the refrigerator” dinners.
(June 21 – July 22)
Although renowned for your culinary skills, you are always looking to learn more and test out new recipes. Nothing is too fancy or too simple for you, and one of your all-time favorite dishes is soup (Tomato Bisque, anyone?)
(May 21 – June 20)
You love your afternoon snack and rarely go a day without it. Carrots with hummus, yogurt and granola, or sweet potato toast are the best pick-me-ups to fuel your active lifestyle.
(September 23 – October 22)
You might as well skip the main course and head straight to dessert. That’s how strong your sweet tooth is. But since Libras eat with their eyes first, it’s also important for your food to look as amazing as it tastes, and this cranberry tart has your name written all over it.
