Fire signs: Foods to suit your sun sign
In the third of the four-part series on eating according to your zodiac sign, Shikha Sharma writes on food you should have if you are born under the following signs – Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.Updated: Mar 01, 2014 18:02 IST
Their areas of impact on the body are the liver, gall bladder, the circulatory system and the digestive system.
Aries people are fast thinkers and problem solvers. Because they are inherently quick thinkers, they need more minerals in their bodies, especially for their muscles and nerves. They should eat banana, brown rice, onion, cucumber, spinach, dals, broccoli, pumpkin, tomato, walnut, olives and fig.
They must watch out for foods that cause nerve exhaustion like excess salt, spices, tea and coffee.
Those of this sign must take care of their spleen, spinal cord and heart. They are most impacted when they don’t take care of their back or consume foods low in iron and vitamin B. They should eat foods that strengthen the back muscles, support the spine, promote circulation of blood and are good for the heart. Spinach, vegetable juices, fruits rich in iron and folic acid, raisins, dates and citrus fruits are good for them. They must also include ample salads and greens in their diet and consume low-cholesterol foods.
This fire sign is predominantly governed by the actions of the liver and impacts the hips and thighs. The liver is the biggest organ of metabolism and facilitates digestion too. Those born under this sign get angry easily and this makes their liver sluggish. This leads to a pot belly in men and a pronounced pear shape in women. It also leads to indigestion, excessive burping and flatulence.
They must consume limited alcohol and non-vegetarian foods, especially if they are angry, agitated or stressed. They must include whole wheat grains, barley, pineapple, citrus fruits, soya and soya products in their diet.
Here are some food choices that are common for all fire signs:
Green leafy vegetables and vegetable juice
Melons, banana, apples, pears, guava and berries
Coconut water and milk
Aloe vera, methi seeds
Brown rice, barley
Spicy and fried foods
Red meat and packaged food
