Birth stones, birth flowers, zodiacs, it's stuff we've all heard about. I know that as a June baby, I'm a Gemini, my birth stone is alexandrit (or pearl) and that my birth flower is a rose. It's all pretty basic stuff, and after a while you start to get bored of hearing the same stuff over and over and over.
That's why birth foods are so important. Never heard of birth foods? No problem! These foods you can eat during your entire birth month and no one is allowed to judge the quantity you consume. Okay, so maybe I just made that up. But you can use that excuse if you want! I know I will be. It's the same theory as birthday cake has no calories. It's science (sorta).
Take a look and see what you'll be dining on during your birthday month! Please note: this does not include desserts. Birth desserts are a totally different thing.
Chicken Pot Pie
I won't lie to you, I'm a little bit jealous about this one. Chicken pot pie is an American classic and we all would be blessed to have this as our birth month food. Chicken pot pie represents warmth and heartiness, which is exactly what you need in January.
The best part about chicken pot pie is that there are many ways you can eat it, including cupcakes!
Spaghetti and Meatballs
A delicious and easy meal for a month that feels like it takes forever. There's also nothing more romantic than recreating that iconic scene from Lady and the Tramp, so spaghetti and meatballs makes sense.
March is the third month of the year, and Tuesday is the third day of the week (because the week starts on Sunday unless you're weird) so basically, March is a perpetual Taco Tuesday. The best part about tacos is that you can change them up however you want. Hard tacos? Soft tacos? Chicken? Beef? BOTH? Totally your call.
You can even make dessert tacos, so you're basically winning all month long.
APRIL FOOLS!! You really got grilled cheese, which is infinitely better! It can be for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and also for a midnight snack. Adding bacon is an option, even pulled pork works well!
Or go totally crazy with a bacon-jalapeno tater tot grilled cheese, because you deserve it.
