People have extremely diverse eating habits. There are those that avoid red meat entirely, even if they are dining out at a world-class steakhouse. Some adhere to strange fad diets, eating only bananas one day and only vegetables the next. Others still throw caution to the wind and indulge in the rich, luxurious side of dining. It's always seemed like there was no real rhyme or reason to eating habits. Those who like certain things just do. Those who hate certain things simply hate them. But really, there is a perfectly logical explanation for some eating habits. Believe it or not, your birthday -- and thus your star sign -- can really affect eating habits, likes and dislikes, and social food tendencies.
There's a lot to be said for astrological signs and how they affect a person. Becoming more familiar with the 12 signs can give huge insight into a person and explain some of their idiosyncrasies. For example, a Taurus absolutely enjoys good food and wine. They tend to be a bit self-indulgent and sometimes need to be reined in a bit. On the opposite end of the spectrum, a Pisces is selfless and spiritual, completely guided by their feelings.
Learning more about the star signs and what they mean about a person can also open a huge window into their eating habits. Someone who is filled with energy, like the Leo, needs to carbo-load. They need something substantial to keep them going as they burn through their need to be center stage. The Aquarius is big on making the world a better place, one step at a time. They'll love CSA baskets and farmer's markets with tons of locally sourced produce and foods that are beneficial to the environment. So, what does your star sign say about your eating habits?
