Food And Zodiac Signs

What You Should Be Eating According to Your Zodiac Sign

AstrologyOur horoscopes will tell you what your most compatible dinner companion’s sign is and what foods are best for you.

As a general rule of thumb your basic nurturing food is typically the same as your astrological sign. So the old adage, you are what you eat will read, eat what you are. For example Taurus’ nurturing food is beef; Pisces is fish; get it? Personal likes and dislikes will strongly effect what you are eating more than any sign or ruling planet, but if you’re inclined to try some new foods, this is a fun place to start.

Even still your Ruling Element, Earth, lets you feel very satisfied with meat and potatoes, hearty grains, rice and beans or anything else substantial in quantity. You enjoy knowing there is plenty and sometimes you worry if there will be enough. To you, food is life but don’t over eat. Your strong, steady nature often means you rarely stray away from old stand by dishes you love best, but don’t be afraid to try something new; you won’t go hungry.

Because of your high energy and curiosity, you often opt for light snacks or mini-meals instead of sitting for long periods enjoying substantial meals. Your Ruling Planet, Mercury, fuels your furious pace and people find you a energetic, fun host. Your stories about food make peoples’ mouths water with anticipation, and you seem to able to talk most people into eating almost anything. In the kitchen, indecision is your enemy.

The more the merrier is your motto. You really like to mix-it-up both in the kitchen and socially. Your flare for social settings makes you a excellent entertainer in the kitchen. Sagittarians won’t use recipes as they are written and are likely to make personal improves to many culinary creations. Most of your cooking includes exotic flavors from around the world. Your need to experiment in the kitchen gives you plenty to explain, which you think is every bit as important as the meal itself.

The seeming limitless patience of your Ruling Element, Earth, means you likely enjoy making and eating your own bread especially if the recipe is traditional. No quick breads for you. If not bread, then some other time honored food tradition of earthy origins, such as canning. Food to you is more than just life. It’s a way of celebrating people, places, events, and the foods that sustain them. Dinner guests love coming to your table because not only are your meals rich and nourishing but so is your conversation. Your dinner parties are always remembered.

Light, airy, and clean describe the foods you prefer as your Ruling Element, Air, demands. Avoid dishes that involve a heavy sauce or gravy. These dishes will only slow you down. Instead you’d probably prefer a vegetarian sandwich or something easily consumed while on the go. In fact, you very much like snacking instead of long sit-down meals. Your Ruling Planet, Saturn, commands you to get to the heart of a dish. Vinegar or citrus will help you cut through the unnecessary heavy flavors you detest so much.

Love is the most important ingredient you add to all your dishes. Your approach to cooking is delicate, charming and may take on hints of fantasy. However, you are never whimsical when planning a meal, and you do so with great skill that takes on aspects of a performance. It’s no doubt that fish is a favorite food, and you probably prefer more exotic varieties accompanied by other types of seafood. Because your Ruling Element is water, a seafood chowder or stew is very likely to grace your table. Try a crawfish boil to satisfy the exotic nature of your Ruling Planet, Jupiter. You are never shallow but run deep with insight and perception. Your dinner companions are intrigued by perceptible secretes you keep just beneath your calm exterior. The best dinner companions for you are Capricorn, Taurus, Cancer, and Scorpio. Choose a Cancer for romance. They fuel your creativity and fire your attraction.
