Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You love a self-contained food, and on National Pecan Pie Day, you can have your nuts, grains and desserts all in one delicious, sweet package. Throw a little whole wheat pastry flour in the crust and you can make it more nutritious, too.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
National Pecan Pie Day is right up your alley -- those delicious, full-flavored nuts are all the better when encased in a sweet filling and flaky crust. Fortunately, the nuts digest slowly, so you won't crash and burn if you eat a small slice.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Never forget the major flavor packed by the humble green onion (also known as the spring onion or the scallion, depending on your neck of the woods). Added to fish, rice, casseroles and soups, their pungent, crisp taste instantly make a dish come alive.

Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
A good rule of thumb? Avoid eating in your car. You won't enjoy your food and you probably won't be purchasing healthy food to start. Pack some healthy snacks (nuts, trail mix, a piece of fruit or a hard-boiled egg) to stave off hunger if it hits.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You like a moderate amount of spice, but you also like conserving space in the kitchen. That's why one bottle of Sriracha sauce is actually a space saver -- it works as an impromptu Bloody Mary mix, in marinara sauce and on fish and roast meats.
