Astrology.Com Daily FoodScopes -- Tuesday August 7, 2012

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You get inspired to make a healthy version of a favorite appetizer. The world would very much welcome a jalapeno popper that's not loaded with oil and sodium. Don't be afraid to think way, way, way outside the box -- or leave it behind entirely.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Generally, you tend to understand the rules, but every now and then, it's time to disobey them. Red wine with meats, white with fish -- mix it up. Try a rose with a hearty salmon steak. Why not set out dry vermouth to go with the buttery richness of chicken?

Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
It's hard to find the time to do a top-to-bottom cleanout of your kitchen on a regular basis. Try following the five-minute rule instead. When you have a few spare moments, organize a drawer, clean out a cupboard or wipe the refrigerator shelves.

Do yourself a favor and organize your take-out menus. Chances are many are out of date or from restaurants you don't patronize anymore. And don't forget that they're recyclable. Clip the remainders somewhere easily accessible.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
In art, as in life, sometimes originality is not the point. Sure, you could make strawberry salsa, or you could follow your best friend's sure-fire basic pico de gallo recipe. Today, do something really well as opposed to doing something new.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Earth signs really hate waste, and sending good salad greens to the compost heap week after week is a real bummer. So try a new method: after prepping and cleaning the greens, shake off excess water and wrap them in a bath towel and secure the ends.
