Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Just about everyone eats far more salt than they need to. Do your body (and waistline) a favor by cutting back on sodium and adding more herbs and spices to your meals. When the flavor is high, you need less salt. Zest and juice from lemon and limes work, too.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21)

Salads really don't have to contain lettuce to be delicious. Mix up a sliced, ripe avocado with red onions, chopped mint and some good feta cheese for a salad that's simultaneously crisply refreshing and satisfying, too.

Explore different kinds of flavors today. If you live near an Asian market, see if they have rau ram, also known as Vietnamese cilantro. This aromatic, peppery herb is great with other strong flavors, especially curry, garlic and citrus.

A toast rack might not be a ridiculous affectation, but just the thing you need to make sure that the bread holding your BLT together remains crisp and toasty. If you don't want to buy a toast rack, just balance two pieces of bread together, teepee style.
