Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Honeydew, Pershing, cantaloupe, watermelon -- all these melons are at their height of ripeness during warmer months. Just remember to wash the outsides thoroughly before you cut into them -- you don't want to drag dirt and pesticides into their juicy flesh.

Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
There's nothing like eating food that you've helped grow and pick yourself. If you don't have your own patch of ground to cultivate, help a neighbor weed their yard or go to a community garden and see if there's a plot of land available.

Having people over for dinner but pressed for time? Don't rush to make a fancy dinner. Pick up a rotisserie chicken, make some sides and ask your sweetheart or other household member to pick up dessert and wine. Voila -- dinner is served!

It's hard not to wince if you're eating with someone who has terrible habits at the dinner table. Can you find a low-key or discreet way to remind this person to chew with their mouth closed or not to reach across you for the salt shaker?

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
It's National Sugar Cookie Day, but you need to keep things light. For a truly decadent (but mostly healthy) treat, sprinkle a touch of cane sugar on some grapefruit halves and grill or broil them until the sugar caramelizes.
