What Food Should You Be Eating According To Your Zodiac Sign?

Do you believe in astrology?

I’ve never taken my zodiac sign or weekly horoscopes very seriously, although the latter can be fun to read from time to time.

I’d heard of determining whether or not a romantic relationship will be successful based on zodiac signs, but until recently, I’d never heard that your sign could dictate the foods that you should and shouldn’t eat!

It makes sense, though—if your zodiac sign determines your personality, your compatibility with others, and who you are in general, why shouldn’t it also determine which foods are best for you? I browsed a few websites, and below is a compilation of what I found. Next time you get the munchies, consider which foods might be a good fit for you, based on your sign.

Whether or not you’re a believer, these delicious and healthful recipes are sure to please your palate.
