Do you often find yourself wondering what food to cook, how to cook it, and even that dreaded question—how much of it? It’s a daily struggle for all of us, but need not be with our food horoscope. Satisfaction is only a click away!
Being cooped up in the office may have you feeling less than healthy. So get in some exercise today. Lifting weights, running or a brisk walk will get your blood pumping again. Follow that with a curried chicken and pasta salad and you’ll be the picture of health once again.
In tough financial times it’s important to stretch a buck as far as it can go. The supermarket is a good place to find bargains. Look for sales on seasonal foods, like asparagus, rainbow trout, cherries and peaches. You’ll find it’s easy to eat healthy on the cheap.
You may need to run important errands on your lunch break today, leaving you very little time to eat. But you can still have a meal while on the run. Chicken and veggie pita wraps, small calzones and Thai spring rolls all give new meaning to term dine and dash.
Start preparing today for the party you have planned. Purchase what you need to make potato, macaroni and shrimp salads as well as fresh salsa. But buy your chicken, ground beef and ribs on the day of the party. You insist on the freshest foods for you and your guests.
You may have to be a little thriftier with your finances today. You can start by preparing your own lunch. Make fresh tuna or roast beef sandwiches, or pack up chicken stir-fry leftovers from last night. You’ll not only save money, but you’ll make sure that you’re eating healthy foods not loaded with fat and MSG.
You’ll be amazed at what you’ll find if you tidy up your workspace today — maybe that long-lost coupon to the sandwich place? Bring back a roast beef hoagie and eat it at your desk. It may be a bit bland, but if you dig deeper into that pile on your desk, you’re sure to find a mustard packet or two.
You may be pressured into socializing with friends after work. You’ll go, but your heart won’t be in it. Have a drink or two, and then take your leave. This way you can have salmon filets, brown rice and steamed asparagus for dinner instead of deep-fried appetizers.
A lonely friend may be feeling blue today. So invite them to a home-cooked meal designed to soothe a hurting spirit. Serve crab-stuffed ravioli with your special marinara sauce and garlic bread, because comfort food makes everything better, even a broken heart.
You won’t be a social butterfly today, and coworkers will get on your nerves. It may be hard to be find alone time, but you can still seal yourself off from others. Slip on your headphones, listen to soothing music and sip on a nice cup of Japanese Kukicha tea. Consider it your little haven from a maddening world.
You’ll have the energy you need to get a lot of work done today. That may the positive benefits of starting the day with a healthy breakfast. Oatmeal with cinnamon and nutmeg will be a great first course, but it’ll be the scrambled egg white omelet with mushrooms that will really light your fire.
You’ll want a healthy lunch today, but friends may have pizza on their minds. You may not be able to beg out, but you can still make healthy choices. Order a grilled chicken salad or a simple pasta with sauce. But skip the melted cheese; otherwise you might as well dig into their pizza.
Relationships are all about compromise, and you’ll do plenty of that today. Your family may want baked ziti that’s heavy on the cheese, but you’ll want something healthier. So hold some of the ziti and marinara sauce back for yourself, and make the casserole with the rest. This way everybody wins.
