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!
Conflicts with antagonistic coworkers will be a ceaseless source of stress today. A few cups of tea could help keep the tension at bay. Both green and black varieties of tea contain the amino acid L-theanine that promotes relaxation and tranquility, two things you’ll need to get though this combative day.
Financial difficulties may mount today, but don’t rush into quick-fix solutions. Taking the time to come up with a sensible budget will be a better use of your time. Still, you may have to get used to making sacrifices, and a diet high in hot dogs, pork and beans and lots of mac and cheese.
At some point in the middle of your busy day you’ll simply get tired of using your brain. So snatch a few minutes to give yourself a mental time out. Taking a short walk will be a good way to clear your head, especially if you bring along a cup of blueberry yogurt and a small bag of almonds. Eat them in a quiet spot and let yourself drift away.
You’ll be forced to come out of your shell today, even though you’d rather keep to yourself. But you may actually enjoy being out in the light, enjoying the company of coworkers, the hum and activity of the office and the box of community cinnamon glazed donuts in the lunchroom.
Dominating the conversations at dinner parties will be considered rude and selfish by the other guests, and you may find yourself ostracized. Stuff your mouth with potato salad or Kaiser rolls instead of shooting off your mouth. That may the only way anyone else will be able to get a word in edgewise.
Don’t be too forthcoming when conversing with others today. You may inadvertently reveal information you’d rather keep under wraps. One tiny slip of the tongue and the next thing you know your secret spicy chipotle spare rib recipe could be all the rage on the Internet.
Successfully cooking the perfect seared rack of lamb with encrusted mustard and garlic will feel like a hollow victory if you have no one to share it with. So ring up someone special who you know will appreciate your skill and hard work. Your mom will be grateful someone’s cooking for her for at change.
Don’t be tempted to gamble with anything today. This will include money, romance or dining at a restaurant called Super Colossal Sashimi God, or any other place that offers half price specials on two-day old sushi. Yuck, yuck, yuck.
You won’t have trouble keeping busy on this hectic but productive day. On the plus side, your day will fly by and it’ll be quitting time before you know it. On a down note, however, you may be too tired to prepare anything more for dinner than a grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of tomato soup, not that there’s anything wrong with that.
You’ll have to hack through the extras to get to the essence of things today. Strip away the refried beans, sour cream and cheese and that burrito may actually be a healthy meal. But leave it as it is and you may have to think about buying a new wardrobe or starting that oft-delayed diet.
Communicating in calmed, measured tones could be tough today. Stress may have you on edge, and an explosion may be only an aggravating phone call or client meeting away. This may be a time when snacking on junk will be a good thing, and a bag of sea salt and vinegar potato chips may help restore a semblance of calm.
You’ll be overwhelmed with petty details and annoying minutiae today. They’ll trip you up and slow you down so don’t expect to rush through anything. Things will get better later in the day, though, when you settle down to a baked ziti dinner that will be cut and dry in its simplicity and zesty flavor.
