Your Zodiac Sign + the One Food You Can't Live Without

You can oftentimes tell a lot of about a person simply by their zodiac sign. Whether it be their general disposition when it comes to conflict or their relationships, there's insightful information everywhere. With researchers in the field and common-folk turned into astrological geniuses, your ability to better understand your fellow humans is at an all-time high.

Another insightful element to get out of zodiac signs and individuals specific charts is one's eating habits. Believe it or not, your sign can shed a lot of light into what your diet needs, what you crave, and what you're likely to indulge in on any given day. Certain signs are more prone to lack of self-control, while others are masters of discipline — all by nature.

Your most basic, nurturing food is generally linked to your zodiac sign, therefore what you eat, you are and vice versa. But what about the downfalls of each zodiac sign? What can't they resist?


March 21 - April 19

[embed_recipe id='12205']

Known to take action and be rather overbearing without trying to be, your food tends to do the same. Taking a 'take no prisoners' approach to cooking and grilling in general.

What's a better way to put that fire element that rules you than by firing up the grill and making a burger you'll never forget? Load those spicy cheeses on your double patty melt, and let your worries slip away as you're transformed into a world of firey heaven; an oxymoron for the ages.


April 20 - May 20

You have a keen sense for the finer things in life, and all the food you eat must meet one criteria: a taste test. Good food is what makes your world go 'round, so there's no denying that your foodie downfall will be one heck of a meal.

Attracted to lean proteins like fish, you have a running knowledge of what you should and shouldn't eat. But when the urge strikes, there's nothing stopping you from indulging in a healthy dose of mud pie. You know, to return to your earthy roots, of course.


April 20 - May 20

The duality of this sign makes those who are ruled by this sign quite the vigilante in the kitchen, given their ability to stay in one place long enough. Being ruled by air can lead to creativity and indecisiveness, allotting for some strange concoctions in the kitchen.

If you're a Gemini, your lack of attention and curiosity could lead you in any direction, but more than likely will bring you to a nutty, sweet surprise. You're probably the person getting lured by a tart pastry or a nutty brownie.


June 21 - July 22

[embed_recipe id='8313']

You view cooking as a labor of love and are known to spend countless hours in your kitchen preparing a meal that will knock guests out of their seats. If you'll do this for the wellbeing of others, there's no telling how far you'll go for yourself.

Being that the moon is your ruling planet and your ruling element is water, there's no denying your love for seafood and desserts from more of a coastal region. Your downfall? A decadent coconut cream pie, baked with a whole 'lotta love.


July 23 - August 22

[embed_recipe id='13450']

With fire as your ruling element, there's no getting around your showmanship in the kitchen. Being that you undeniably know how to throw one heck of a party, a foodie party for yourself will be that fit for a king.

Grand by design, you'll cook an elaborate meal for one, full of wild game and the most elaborate pineapple upside down cake this side of the Mississippi.


August 23 - September 22

[embed_recipe id='7884']

With your strengths in planning and organization, it's unlikely that your foodie downfall will be a random one. Ruled by Earth, you yearn for a hearty yet natural fare, such as that found in bread and pasta.

Your weakness is with carbs, and you'll probably plan an elaborate meal with all of the finest homemade pasta and sauces any soul can desire.


September 23 - October 22

Simplicity is your nature, and you bring that into your food game, too. Never one for extravagance or testing new waters, you like things structured and refined. While you like the simple things, you also like a show. Your tables are always set, and your plates are well-prepped.

When the mood strikes, you're likely to dabble in an extraordinary salad with the freshest of greens, avocados and fruits galore, topped with the prettiest protein the eyes can see. Oh, did we mention the mass quantities of dressing that will be involved? Yes, it will be beautiful, simple and pure. Yes, it will be doused over the entire salad. And yes, it will taste like a literal dream.


October 23 - November 21

[embed_recipe id='5820']

Thriving on all things secretive and mysterious, it's no shock that you like the surprise element added into your cuisine. Fans of the pungent and aged, cheeses and decadent, hoppy drinks are your kryptonite.

When you're in the mood, there's nothing stopping you from cooking up some shrimp smothered in butter on top of a mountain of garlic-doused and cheese-filled pasta.


November 22 - December 21

[embed_recipe id='7576']

There's nothing holding you back as a Sagittarius, and the more is the motto for every aspect of your life. From friends to parties to the kitchen, you can't ever quite get enough. Hey, there could definitely be worse things in life!

For you, a stout and boozy cocktail with herby ingredients like rosemary and mint are your go-tos when you're feelin' yourself, and lucky for you, there's nothing anyone can do to stop it.


December 22 - January 19

[embed_recipe id='11888']

Doing things right the first time, there's no fooling you when it comes to the natural and holistic within foods, and people, too. For you, food is more than just what you consume when you hear your stomach growl. It's an experience, and an ancient one, at that; it's a way to celebrate life, and the people you have in yours.

Your downfall is an organic truffle with the wildest of berries and the creamiest of homemade whipped cream, all topped with freshly roasted nuts that you farmed all by yourself.


January 20 - February 18

[embed_recipe id='10172']

Ruled by the element of air, you take this very seriously into what you eat. Keeping things light and refreshing is your cup of tea and something you should seriously stick with, even throughout indulgent times. Though you tend to avoid things that are of the heavier nature, everyone has their downfall and you, Aquarius, do too.

Though we probably won't find you feasting over a death-by-chocolate cake, it'd be a shock to us all if you weren't dabbling in fine wines and a citrus-topped piece of salmon. Oh, did we mention it's teriyaki salmon? Light, yet satisfying; this cancels out all of your cravings in one sitting.


February 19 - March 20

As a Pisces, everything you touch and make is done so with love. Love encompasses all that you do on a daily basis, and why shouldn't it? After all, it is what makes the world go 'round. Because you're ruled by the element of water, a good lobster tail or fresh off the boat cut of salmon is likely what's in your regular routine, but when you go off the deep end, you go head first.

Never shallow, you like a dessert that is sophisticated, edgy, and full of various elements — much like yourself. An exquisitely prepped slice of cheesecake is right up your alley, but an adventurous one. Never a fan of the basic, you need a cheesecake to match; one with pizazz, one with ten different flavors crammed into each bite. What you need is essentially anything from the Cheesecake Factory or Voodoo Donuts to cure your weary, sugar-provoked mind.
