Sure, your taste buds may appreciate the greasy and sugary stuff, but chances are your brain (and body) isn't as enthusiastic. Whether you're getting into a new school year or plowing through the work week, eating the right "brain foods" is an essential part of a happy, healthy lifestyle. Based on your individual zodiac sign, here are the specific foods that will bring you a much brighter and more productive day.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You Rams wake up ready to tackle whatever's on your schedule -- projects, ongoing goals and new challenges. Sometimes, however, you get so excited and anxious in your endeavors that you'll jump on to something new before finishing what you started first. To help ease nerves and take it one step at a time, drink a cup of peppermint tea -- the soothing effects of peppermint make it one of the best and most natural ways to slow down and relax.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Simple and practical by nature, you Taureans require comfort within equally comfortable surroundings -- sometimes, too comfortable. With a tendency to focus more on the luxury of bare necessities, you can easily overlook the full potential in other areas of life, breeding general laziness. That's why a moderate amount of organic, French-pressed coffee, without artificial flavoring, is your go-to brain food -- a surefire super-food guaranteed to get the brain working and the body out of bed and fully energized.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
The Gemini mind is constantly bouncing from one idea to another, which is why you're so curious, talkative and restless. To enhance your busy brain while keeping on a steady track, turn to high-protein salads with oil-based dressings; the proteins keep energy flowing. Mix and match greens, eggs and chicken to not only boost energetic proteins, but to keep the animated mind stimulated with each new leafy creation.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You Cancers are known for your nurturing nature. No matter where you are during the day -- as a stay-at-home parent, an in-office worker or working from home -- you have a domestic quality that protects and comforts those around you. Matcha tea has many benefits for the Crab, as its amino acids detoxify the body, enhance the mind and boost mood levels. And because it's pure and organic, Matcha will enable you to feel healthier in your shell -- in turn, the warm, soothing effect will rub off on those you care for.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
True to your sign's symbol, the Lion, you Leos are regal creatures who flourish in the spotlight. You often find yourself speaking publicly on a day-to-day basis, overseeing others and managing groups. The calming amino acids and tyrosine found in low-fat yogurt can actually enhance your performance level, erasing any nerves or stomach problems prior to taking the stage, giving a presentation or delivering an important speech.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Virgos are known to be true perfectionists, with rational, active minds that deliver quick reactions and analytical answers. That's why wild salmon is your surefire brain food. Its omega-3 fatty acids pump up brain power, while niacin keeps cognitive thinking nice and steady -- perfect for a perfectionist! Stomach-soothing ginger is also an ideal food for Virgos, as your stomach and digestive system tends to be problematic.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
As the sign of the Scales, you Libras require harmony and balance in everyday life -- so much so that in the meantime, it can cause you to forget the little things! Plus, when more energy is spent on the needs of others, which is often the case, you can sometimes forget about yourself altogether. Eating eggs is a great way to balance what's inside the brain, as choline prevents cloudy thinking and boosts memory function. So when you prepare a sympathy omelet for your troubled friend, be sure to make one for yourself, too!
 Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You Scorpios are as emotionally deep as you are repressive, so you tend to withdraw in self-defense. Day-to-day stresses at work, home or in relationships could cause you to retreat to an isolated dark side. Organic, dark chocolate offers the right amount of antioxidants and energy-boosting caffeine needed to remove that Scorpio stinger that's creating a gloomy cloud over the day -- it'll also heighten your serotonin levels, which means a much happier mood all around.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarians are known as optimistic adventurers who thrive in wide-open spaces, with high spirits and a rosy outlook on life. To maintain that high level of energy at work or in school without crashing, snacking on Vitamin E-rich nuts will enhance your brain power. Almonds boost adrenaline, walnuts relieve sleep problems and Brazil nuts contain a lot of selenium, which is a healthy stress-killer. Throw a mix in your bag, keep up the momentum and snack throughout your daily adventures!

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
A true Capricorn is all about lofty goals and big ambitions, continuously climbing your way to the top like only a Mountain Goat could. Calculating and methodical, sometimes your workaholic nature breeds high stress levels and an overly-serious outlook on life. Blueberries are the Capricorn cure, with an extremely high level of antioxidants that enhance memory and brainpower, relieve stress and are convenient for a busy student or worker on the go. And as an Earth sign, blueberries are even more ideal because they come to you straight from Mother Nature.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You Aquarians are high, free thinkers, a trait that perfectly matches your outside-the-box Air sign thinking. Bananas are an ideal food for big imaginations and active minds, as the amount of sugar in bananas is the same amount of glucose in our bloodstream. When glucose levels are high, memory and cognitive function soar, allowing even more room for the Aquarian school of thought.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You tend to feel the weight of the world, Pisces, so when hardships hit the home or workplace, it can be especially tough for your overly-compassionate nature. Since yours is the sign of escapism, falling into depression or addiction is easy. You would benefit from eating a diet that incorporates flaxseed, which consists of ALA -- a fat that boosts the cerebral cortex where sensory information and the pleasure sense are stored.
