Virgo is the sign of precision and productivity. Those born under this sign tend towards a desire for perfection somewhere in their lives. It may be in impeccable clothes, a strong work ethic, or planning the perfect event. Even if it does not seem so on the surface, watch a Virgo and it is nigh inevitable that you will find the one area in which the Virgo you know goes for the gold. And if that area is food, you are either extremely fortunate to know such a great chef or pulling your hair out because you can’t seem to find anything your Virgo likes! Well, let’s see what kinds of flavors are attributed to this sign. You might be able to surprise your favorite Virgo no matter on what end of the food spectrum you or your friend can be found.
The sign of Virgo rests between the end of Summer, and the beginning of Autumn. This is the period in which the grains stalks ripen. And many grains are on Virgo’s list of possibilities. You may be surprised to find that a light, simple breakfast of oatmeal with raisins and cinnamon may go over better than a heavier meal of eggs and bacon. Virgos tend to have a few digestive issues since they are nervous about having things be just right. If you or your Virgo has a bit more of a sweet tooth, try a light rye or wheat toast with some hazelnut spread and elderberry preserves on the side. Consider a light mint tea or a vanilla chai to serve alongside.
Depending on the workload, Virgos may favor a heavier meal at lunch or a fast, quick meal that borders on nothing at all. For the busy, working lunch type of Virgo, consider a trail mix with a generous dose of dried fruits. This simple trick can allow a Virgo to get through a hectic schedule without losing energy halfway through the day. A peppermint mocha or hot chocolate would also be a welcome pick-me-up after a long meeting.
For dinner, consider a salmon nicoise salad with fresh fennel and celery. Fish isn’t as heavy a meat and the aromatic scents of the fennel and celery will draw even a picky Virgo over to take a little taste. Roast chicken with fresh rosemary and fried zucchini and squash blossoms will also be a delight for the senses and not be a daunting dish to create. Serve with a cherry wheat ale, an elderberry wine, or a pink lemonade with lavender blossoms in the ice cubes to make a splash. Finish with a chocolate mint truffle and you will probably see all the stress of the day just melt away allowing sweet Virgo to finally feel cared for just as Virgo always takes care of everyone else.
If you feel a bit daunted trying to make your own chocolates, you are allowed to cheat, Virgos understand time constraints like no other. There is a Godiva chocolatier right in Troy, MI on West Big Beaver road. And if you would prefer to go out with friends for dessert, you can’t beat Dessert Oasis in downtown Rochester, MI. There you can have the best of both worlds with great coffee and hot chocolate drinks paired with the most marvelous handmade desserts you could ask for. Treat yourself, or a Virgo you know to something wonderful tonight. The smile of a happy Virgo is a treasure you will remember forever.
