I’ve always been interested in what the stars have to say. For years I have checked zodiac signs before first dates, flipped to horoscopes in magazines before I travel, and sought them out in the early morning hours of important events in my life.
One thing I never considered was incorporating the stars into my diet. It wasn’t until I was standing in line humming and hawing between two different cold-pressed juices and my friend asked me what my sign was, that I started to think about what it could mean for my non-human relationships (i.e. food and health habits). She informed me that Cancers (like myself) are often susceptible to digestive disorders and should say ‘no’ to alcohol (yikes) and ‘yes’ to food and drinks rich in water and fiber. Specifically, I should steer toward cucumbers, spinach, figs and pumpkins–advice that wasn’t hard for me to swallow.
What do the stars want you to drink? To help you figure out what juice you should order according to your zodiac sign, I worked with the team at the Juice Truck to match their yummy juices with common health and personality traits related to the 12 zodiac signs. Stop by their shop and let us know if our predictions are accurate.
