Taurus Astrology Foods
Just as those born under the sign of Taurus are known for their green thumbs, many are amazing cooks as well. And there is an array of foods that are specifically associated with your sign so you can create a culinary delight that is totally Taurus! Some of the tantalizing, earthy flavors of Spring belong to you. Mushrooms, parsley, and alfalfa sprouts are yours to experiment with whether in salads or sandwiches, sauces or dips, or even served solitary for their fresh flavor. Honey, apples, and cherries are also yours to enjoy. You can combine these with almonds and walnuts or in breads, as breads are very earthy. Taurus also plays with floral flavors such as rose, tansy, and jasmine. Other flavors you can imbue include oak, cardamom, peppermint, and thyme. Oak may be from the cask that you aged wine in or the coals you used for your barbeque. Jasmine can elevate ordinary rice into something special. And of course the meat associated with Taurus is beef!
If you are feeling too flighty and out of sorts, get a good solid meal into you. Foods like beef barley stew with carrots and potatoes, or steamed vegetables with real butter or a cheese sauce will make you feel grounded and ready to face the world once more. But Taurus signs often have a good natural intuition regarding nutritional wisdom. If you find you crave something that is not junk food, you probably need it. Even if you have a craving for chocolate you might be in need of magnesium in your diet. Trust yourself. Ginseng tea can also help calm you, although a stir fry of ginger, beef and vegetables with some sesame seeds and honey would not go awry either. If you aren’t up to cooking for yourself when you are feeling this way, you might try Logan’s restaurant on Brown Road in Auburn Hills, or Oriental Forest on Baldwin in Auburn Hills.
However, if you are feeling sluggish and your feet are dragging and your metabolism is slow you need to switch things up and go with lighter, spicier foods. Ginger not only to soothes digestion, it also helps to stimulate it. So mix it with your choice of hot peppers but try it in soups instead of slow roasted meals or a hot tea. The alfalfa sprouts are your friend here once again along with other sprouts and fruits. So salads can put some spring back in your step. Try a ginger-sesame dressing or a fruity or balsamic vinaigrette to perk up the flavor. You might be surprised how much the right dressing can liven up a salad. Don’t forget a few toasted almonds or walnuts on top. Light foods don’t have to be boring! But striking the right balance can help you keep up your stamina to do all the wonderful things you do. Steady onward, Taurus!
