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!
Today has the potential to be great! Of course, starting the day off with a sensible breakfast is a must, even if it’s just whole-grain toast and a bowl of cereal. Make it something high it oats, barley or bran. Some of the old favorites have a substantial amount of sugar, even those that say they don’t.
Power struggles, backstabbing and ax grinding will all conspire to torpedo your mood and productivity today. But you can defuse any and all negative situations by staying above it all. Let the invigorating aroma and flavor of a cup of Japanese Gyokuro tea lift you above the fray. You should see how silly they all look from up there.
After an indulgent weekend it may be best to stay in the company of like-minded people today. Your Overeaters Anonymous group won’t scold you when you tell of the creamy, cheesy beef enchilada casserole you had last night. They may drool and stare longingly into space, but they won’t scold.
You’ll want to splurge on yourself in grand style today. You’ll lust after expensive clothing, massages in tony, high-priced spas or box seats at the theater. But one look at your meager bank account will put the kibosh on your high-falutin’ dreams, and a dollop of Grey Poupon on your American cheese sandwich may be as fancy as it gets today.
Your willpower will be put to the test today as the endless parade of office birthday and anniversary potluck celebrations continue anew. It’ll be hard to walk away from homemade coleslaw, pot stickers and Mexican bean pie… well, okay, maybe just one pot sticker.
Too many cooks will be in the kitchen today as overbearing coworkers try to push their individual agendas on you. But stay on course, and don’t let your actions be swayed. Take your homemade shrimp salad and chicken pita wrap somewhere where you can enjoy a little alone time.
You’ll have to lay down the law with the kids today. They may want Sloppy Joes for dinner, but you’ll want to serve something healthier. A compromise can be struck if you use extra lean ground turkey instead of ground beef. But don’t tell then about your switcheroo; they won’t even be able to tell the difference.
You won’t be into flamboyancy or showy displays today. You’ll want things nice and simple, especially in your cuisine. So eschew the trendy bistros with their fancy tartars, toasted ciabatta with brie, and veggie pot stickers. You’ll be quite happy with your chicken chow mein and won ton soup.
You’ll smile today when you think of all the wonderful global journeys you’ve taken. You’ll fondly remember the incredible sites and interesting people you’ve encountered. But mostly you’ll remember the food, especially the four-course roasted duck and dumpling soup dinner at that cool restaurant in Hong Kong.
Today won’t roll easy and problems will drop from the sky like rocks. Fortunately this frustrating day can’t last forever, and home will be an oasis of sanity. So prepare yourself a nice dinner; stir-fried beef and broccoli will be perfect, as will a glass of Australian cabernet.
Your creativity may be compromised today as your mind seems blocked. But deadlines demand that you unclog that logjam pronto, so do what you can to stoke the mental fires. The glucose in fruit will do just that, and a few slices of mango or pineapple could get the hamster back on the wheel.
You’ll have too much going on today to be bothered with social graces and friendliness. You’ll get a lot done, but you’ll alienate people in the process. So make amends with coworkers by picking up the tab for the Chinese lunch feast. But don’t eat the last of the egg rolls. That could make you look rude and selfish all over again.
