Aries (March 21 to April 19)
How you like to eat: Goal, set. Action, taken. For someone who's raring to go (who, me?), forward flavors and foods with fiery, bold tastes are the way to go; sweets and sugary carbonated drinks aren't nearly as appealing to you as snacks and beverages with intense, piquant flavors.

Your best snacks: Deviled eggs, radishes, black olives, grapefruit.

Or take your go-to snack and add: Ginger or cayenne.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
How you like to eat: You love ingredients that signal the good life—but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy healthy foods, as long as they still taste delicious. If a food can pull off the feat of being rich and creamy yet still somehow nutritious, it's got your name written all over it.

Your best snacks: Lima beans, cheddar, avocados, bananas.

Or take your go-to snack and add: Cardamom or cloves.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
How you like to eat: Keeping your brain challenged is a top priority for multitaskers like you, so energizing snacks are particularly important. You avoid foods that require you to sit and digest, preferring to eat and move on to the next interesting thing.

Your best snacks: Citrus, mangos, cucumbers, celery, feta.

Or take your go-to snack and add: Oregano or dill.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
How you like to eat: You're a giver and a nurturer, but all that caregiving can take a toll. If you occasionally transfer your emotional state to your digestive system, you may have a sensitive stomach. Comforting foods are the ones you love best; if something is homemade or freshly baked, you're sold.

Your best snacks: Coconut (or coconut-flavored foods), figs, eggs.

Or take your go-to snack and add: Chamomile (or a cup of soothing chamomile tea).

Leo (July 23 to August 22)
How you like to eat: The priciest fruits, the most expensive cheeses, the prize-winning chocolate—these are the snacks you gravitate toward. And there's a good chance your mini-meal will contain some kind of animal protein, especially meat.

Your best snacks: Peaches, sunflower seeds, mozzarella.

Or take your go-to snack and add: Rosemary or saffron.

Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
How you like to eat: As the sign that rules digestion (it's a tough job, but someone's got to do it), you're especially keen on snacks with GI-friendly fiber and enzymes. And though you're usually thrifty, when it comes to buying groceries, you like food that's a little bit special.

Your best snacks: Wheat bread or crackers, grape tomatoes, raspberries, blueberries.

Or take your go-to snack and add: Mint or fennel.

Libra (September 23 to October 22)
How you like to eat: Eating is an art to you; you're the consummate epicure and your approach to culinary perfection requires that what you eat has to be absolutely fresh and also look picture-perfect. Even if it is just a 3 p.m. snack at your desk.

Your best snacks: Apples, walnuts, pomegranates, oats.

Or take your go-to snack and add: Vanilla or cinnamon.

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
How you like to eat: You're the most passionate sign of the zodiac and you crave intensity (so that's why those plain rice cakes never appealed). Foods that have pure, strong flavors and aromas are right up your alley.

Your best snacks: Pumpkin (or pumpkin-flavored foods), chocolate.

Or take your go-to snack and add: Cumin or garlic.

Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
How you like to eat: As a lover of nature, you're drawn to fresh foods that are minimally processed—something we all should be keeping in mind when those afternoon cravings strike. Your palate is wide-ranging, and as someone who's eager for new experiences, you'll try almost anything.

Your best snacks: Beans, plums, persimmons, pecans, dates.

Or take your go-to snack and add: Nutmeg or curry.

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
How you like to eat: You know what you like, and are not afraid to eat it every single day (does that nut-and-dried-fruit trail mix you've been munching on since seventh grade sound familiar?). No matter how your life changes, you have a strong allegiance to the foods with which you grew up.

Your best snacks: Cranberries, bread, kale (and chips, of course).

Or take your go-to snack and add: Tarragon or thyme.

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
How you like to eat: Nonconformists like you have some pretty original ideas about food, which may explain the funny looks you've gotten while snacking on roasted Brussels sprouts. When you eat alone at home, it's almost as if you're camping—no plates or utensils required.

Your best snacks: Potatoes, vinegar-flavored foods (hello, salt-and-vinegar chips).

Or take your go-to snack and add: Parsley or lemon.

Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
How you like to eat: Delicate, gentle foods prepared simply are the ones that speak to you (so maybe skip those mango-habanero, fire-blasted nuts). And you may have a sweet tooth, too, thanks to your sweet-natured, dreamy outlook on life.

Your best snacks: Pears, honey, almonds, melon.

Or take your go-to snack and add: Seaweed or sage.
