All Astrology Signs Point To Cooking

2019 Nov 15th

Many feel a deep-rooted connection to astrology signs, while others believe that it's pure hooey.  No matter what astrology sign you are, and how you feel about the subject, cooking is part of all our lives.  Let us point you in the right direction.  Here are some suggestions and reasons why you should cook depending on when you were born. Canadian astrology with food

CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd-Jan 19th)

These New Years babies are noted for their longevity due to a healthy skeletal system. To fight off osteoporosis, a high protein and calcium diet is required by the stars themselves!  Capricorns that appreciate cheese omelets are in luck!  And, needless to say, the Fox Run Folding Non-Stick Omelette Pan is the perfect holiday gift for your special Capricorn ( or any of the 11 signs!)

AQUARIUS (Jan 20th- Feb 18th)

Those born under this sign typically enjoy treating themselves (and others) in salty snacks.  if one tends to lean towards the “chips n’ dips” type of cuisine, being an “air” sign, strawberries, pineapples, and chicken are the correct alternative to a snacking lifestyle.  In our blog “Only In Canada”, we have a quick and easy Hawaiian chicken  sandwich recipe that will suit any Aquarius’ appetite! Coming from an air sign, and being the bearer of water, why not decorate your wet bar with an Aarke Brass Sparkling Water Maker? Create water in Canada!

PISCES (Feb 19th -Mar 20th)

A true water sign, most people assume that a Pisces will gravitate to seafood.  True for some of course, but Iron is a needed component to keeping those feet and toes at their best.  Lean beef is one of the best ways to ensure an iron rich diet.  In our last blog “Holiday Party Planning”, you can learn all about dry aging prime rib, and mastering the roasting technique!

ARIES (Mar 21st-Apr 19th)

A fire sign at its utmost, an Aries person is a thinker.  Sometimes, this can lead to depression…Potassium phosphate can resolve these symptoms.  A salad made up of tomatoes, onions, olives, lettuce, and lentils is a great lunch to cure the blues.  Spin your salad clean with an OXO Good Grips 5.8L Salad Spinner, and try some of our other featured salad tools and utensils!

TAURUS (Apr 20th-May 20th)

Being grounded by an Earthly sign, Taurus folks typically are great singers.  Avoiding fat, sugar, and starch will enable the Taurus to be all they can be.  Fish and seafood are a Taurus’ friend!  A Zojirushi Indoor Electric Grill will come in handy during the approaching winter months.

GEMINI (May 21st-Jun 20th)

As an air sign, the circulatory system is the most important aspect to a Gemini and their passionate ways. Potassium chloride and calcium help keep the lungs functioning at their top levels.  Fruit is an essential component in a Gemini’s diet.  Using one of our many fine juicers such as the Breville Juice Fountain Cold Juicer on oranges, celery, carrots, apricots, plums and spinach will create the perfect morning blend to start your day!

CANCER (Jun 21st- Jul 22nd)

Being a Cancer myself, I can attest to the stomach is one of our main focuses.  Even though a water sign, a Cancel should not drink excessive liquids. Sugar, starch, and salt are not a friend to a Cancer either…This is why yogurt is a great dietary solution for Cancers!  Produce your own yogurt in a Cuisinart Electronic Yogurt Maker with Automatic Cooling.  Using soymilk instead of milk allows those with lactose issues a healthy alternative with this yogurt maker.

LEO (Jul 23rd-Aug 22nd)

The fiery Leo stands tall due to a great back.  Magnesium phosphate is a cell salt that helps the blood.  All the proteins are suitable in a Leo’s diet typically.  A crucial element to a Leo’s diet are rye and whole wheat.  Baking bread with or without gluten is a breeze with a Panasonic Automatic Gluten-Free Bread Maker with yeast Dispenser.  This model even has a built-in nut and raisin dispenser!

VIRGO (Aug 23rd-Sep 22nd)

The Virgo sign is one of the Earth.  Grounded by their sign, Virgos can take on too much upon themselves, stress, and have stomach issues like a Cancer.  Stay away from chocolate even though one might crave it during those stressful times.  Reach for herbal tea instead!  The Breville One-Touch Tea Maker is a top-notch maker of herbal elixirs.  Maximum infusion is guaranteed!

LIBRA (Sep 23rd- Aug 22nd)

Those that fall under the Libra sign can be muscular yet need to watch their kidneys and lower back.  An air sign, Libra individuals need to equalize their alkaline and acid for proper kidney function.  Cooking chicken and brown rice is a healthy dinner solution for a Libra.  Using the proper tools and utensils makes this dinner quick and easy! Chicken is in the stars!

Chicken in Brown Rice Dinner

Ingredients: 3 pounds of skinless chicken pieces (minus the wings) 5 small plum tomatoes 1 large yellow onion (chopped) 3 smashed garlic cloves 1 ¼ cups long-grain brown rice 1 ½ cups water ½ cup frozen peas (defrosted for an hour prior) ¾ cup sliced and drained roasted red bell peppers 1 tablespoon each olive oil and unsalted butter Salt and pepper to taste Lemon wedges and parsley (optional) Directions: 1) Heat oil & butter in a Demeyere Industry 12.5” Frypan. 2) Season with S&P then brown chicken in batches over medium heat.  Set aside. 3) Place garlic & onion in frying pan with salt and pepper to taste. Cook 4 minutes on medium. 4) Transfer to an All-Clad D5 Polished 4QT Soup Pot with Lid. 5) Place everything but the chicken and peas in the pot and stir. 6) Wedge chicken to cover in the liquid rice mixture. 7) Set at medium-low for an hour with lid on. 8) If needed, cook without lid to evaporate any remaining liquid. 9) Place peas in pot.  Cover.  Rest for 15 minutes to bring peas to heat. 10) Garnish with lemon wedges and parley (optional).

SCORPIO (Oct 23rd-Nov 21st)

Scorpios are resilient people.  They age well.  To continue defying gravity, a Scorpio should eat smaller meals, yet high in protein.  Seafood and fish are a great way to keep looking at your youngest.  Also, when it is the holiday season, Scorpios are lucky to have walnuts, fig, black cherries, berries and apples as a go-to food source.  Making a fruit cake in a Crown 10” Angel Cake Pan will have all the signs pointing towards a happy holiday party!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22nd-Dec 21st)

Staying thin at an older age can be difficult sometimes with a Sagittarius.  Eating a diet with silica can keep the Sagittarius as intense as their sign indicates.  Potatoes and egg yolks are great addition to a Sagittarius’ diet.  Therefore, a small breakfast with a scrambled egg along with some breakfast potatoes can start the morning off right.  The All Clad D5 Polished Ultimate Egg Pan can help cook the best breakfast ever!

CAPRICORN (Dec 22nd-Jan 19th)

Finally, are the Capricorns.  More often than not, they have some great teeth and bone structure! To keep this Earthly sign looking like their super model selves, calcium is a needed ingredient for their body and teeth.  Cheese is always a crowd pleaser full of calcium!  And to cut any cheese out there, slice away using the Zwilling J.A.
