The list of health foods, trendy foods and superfoods goes on and on. If you are having trouble deciding which healthy snack food to munch on while you study, maybe you should let the stars decide for you.
Aries: March 21-April 19
Aries' energetic and courageous personality means they are always on the move. Popcorn is the perfect healthy snack food (as long as you skip the butter and salt) for them not only because it is quick to make—fitting for their often impatience—but you can easily take it on the go.
They also have a liking for spicy food, which is probably reflective of their enthusiastic, yet quick-tempered traits. Adding chili powder, curry powder, cayenne pepper or even Sriracha will help popcorn suit their hot n' spicy personality.
Taurus: April 20-May 20
Taurus are loving people who find stability in a sense of security. However, they can be quite jealous, possessive and resentful depending on the situation.
Their love of security means they find comfort in routine—especially when it comes to food. They tend to eat the same meals day-to-day and save space for an after-dinner treat. This is why the best healthy snack food for them is something that doesn't interrupt their daily routine and they can snack on in their downtime–like blueberries.
Blueberries are sweet, which satisfies Taurus's sweet tooth, and also packed with antioxidants. They're also a light snack so they won't ruin dinner.
Gemini: May 21-June 20
Everyone knows Geminis as the dual personalities: good and bad, fun and serious, thoughtful and careless. When it comes to food, they are no different. That is why a sweet and salty healthy snack is perfect for them.
Apples and peanut butter suit both sides of their versatile personality. They are also a reminder of childhood and lunch box snacks making them perfect for Gemini's youthful attitude.
If your BFF happens to be an Aries, try these sweet and savory popcorn recipes when you are looking for a (somewhat) healthy hangout snack.
Cancer: June 21-July 22
The only thing more clingy than a Cancer is the way avocado sticks to toast.
Cancers don't care too much about their health. It's not that they are unhealthy, they just like occupying all of their head space with emotions. That's why their healthy snack food—avocado toast—probably gets the most backlash for containing carbs and fats. Avocados, although hated on for their fats, still contain a lot of health benefits.
Cancers are also known for being moody and changing their mind a lot. That's why a versatile snack is something they always need. Avocado toast can be spiced up with sauces, eggs or even be made gluten free.
Leo: July 23-August 22
Leos are generous, warm-hearted and creative, but a Leo loves to have their food be expensive, which is probably because they can be kind of pompous. Their tendency to be occasionally patronizing means they want a healthy snack food that everyone knows is extra healthy. That is why snacking on some kale chips will easily make them the center of attention.
Kale is essentially over-priced collard greens (in my opinion) and frankly, the trend of kale is getting kind of annoying. But that doesn't stop a Leo from loving their superfood chips and pinning as the most creative snack.
Virgo: August 23-September 22
Virgos are modest and practical beings that tend to be known as the perfectionist of the group. Due to their shyness and often pressure to feel perfect, they can get a bit fussy in social situations and let out their inherent negativity.To defeat their grumpiness, they are in need of something sweet and fun, making the best healthy snack food for them frozen grapes. This snack suits their practicality because frozen fruit stays good for a long time. Grapes are frozen fruit favorite—probably because they have superpowers—helping fulfill Virgo's desire to be perfect.
Libra: September 23-October 22
Libras are known for being balanced. They are peaceful, fair, romantic and popular. They value friendships and enjoy being around others, but are also easily influenced by others—making Greek yogurt the perfect healthy snack food for them.
Much like a libra, a cup of Greek yogurt has balance; it is both sweet and bitter. If you add granola, it can be both smooth and crunchy. This is what also makes Greek yogurt a libras' favorite snack: its ability to be influenced and changed by other foods. Greek yogurt is rarely eaten alone. Besides just granola, you can add honey, jam, fruit, peanut butter—the options are endless.
If you are Libra and new to the Greek yogurt craze, find the best ones here.
Scorpio: October 23-November 21
Scorpios are determined individuals who often let their emotions and passion steal the show. Their powerful nature means they like a snack that is high in calories, gives them energy and tries to tame their ever-present hunger.
Their desire for an energy-boosting snack and something that doesn't bore them makes trail mix their go-to. Scorpios like spice and flavor, so adding excitement by way of spices to their trail mix is a must. However, trail mix can get unhealthy really fast—something a Scorpio needs to watch out for—so these unique trail mix combos might help them out.
Sagittarius: November 22-December 21
There is nothing more like a Sagittarius than their free and careless nature combined with their desire to travel the world. That is why for the best healthy snack food for them is something different that they probably first found in an international grocery store, like wasabi peas.
The unique flavor of wasabi peas cannot be hidden just like the blunt, straightforward personality of a Sagittarius. A Sagittarius is also blindly optimistic, meaning that they might be passing this snack out to share with everyone when it's really not for everyone.
Capricorn: December 22-January 19Capricorns are practical, yet ambitious. They are disciplined, yet humorous. When it comes to healthy snack foods, they choose something that is classic, yet packed with flavor: strawberries. Strawberries are the best healthy snack food for Capricorns because their practicality and availability puts a Capricorn's mind at ease. Capricorns are also fatally pessimistic—which probably stems from them finding their snack food having gone bad one too many times. Luckily, Capricorns have a tendency to not give up and strawberries can be eaten at all hours of the day, so maybe next time they'll be able to eat all the berries before they go bad.
Aquarius: January 20-February 18
An Aquarius' personality is friendly, humanitarian, honest and intellectual, but they can sometimes be unemotional and unpredictable. Their friendliness means they love to share food and their intellectuality makes them knowledgeable of the importance of a protein-rich diet, making soybeans—more lovingly known as edamame—the best snack food for them.
Soy is packed with nutrients and protein making it a very healthy snack for an Aquarius. They also already love coffee, so keeping it in the bean-family is suitable for them. Soybeans can be consumed in many ways—eaten as beans, drank as milk, cooked as tofu and so on—which is fitting for the unpredictability of an Aquarius.
Pisces: February 19-March 20
Pisces are easily led by the people around them. Although they are very friendly and imaginative, they can be sensitive and weak when it comes to being social. That is why they prefer a common healthy snack food that easily blends them in with the world around them, like almonds.
Almonds (and almond butter) are a popular health food. This is not a bad thing—it just means the popularity makes it less of a stand-out snack like goji berries or chia seeds.
TBH, a pisces would rather occupy their time doing something imaginative and artistic like reading or painting than worrying about what snack to eat. They also spend so much time caring for their friends that the need a quick grab-and-go snack like almonds.
You may not have realized how much your personality affects your taste in food and since there are so many healthy foods out there, it might make your life easier to let your birthday decide what to snack on this time around.
