Here are the top “sexy foods” on the planet:
Almonds: Almonds have always been purported to increase passion, act as a sexual stimulant, and aid with fertility. These crunchy morsels a must eat on Valentine’s Day. Like the asparagus, almonds are filled with nutrients and rich in several trace minerals that are important for sexual health and reproduction. To get her in the mood, light an almond scented candle during dinner and she will never know what seduced her.
Garlic: Although probably known more as a “turn off” than a “turn on,” garlic is actually a very effective aphrodisiac. Garlic contains a potent ingredient called Allicin which increases blood flow and libido.
Bananas: For Valentine’s Day, what could be more romantic than dipping bananas into a shared pot of chocolate fondue? Packed with bromelain enzymes, riboflavin and potassium, eating one banana a day is guaranteed to keep you energized, which will definitely come in handy later in the evening!
Chili: A great way to spice up your night and get a good dose of vitamin C at the same time is by incorporating some chili into your Valentine’s Day dinner!
Avocados: Avocado trees were referred to as “testicle trees” by the ancient Aztecs, and rightfully so! Avocados are not only bursting with folic acid, a type of vitamin B that helps turn protein into energy, but it’s also filled with potassium that helps boost men and women’s libidos.
Figs: Figs are high in amino acids and improve sexual stamina. You can flambé fresh figs and serve them over yummy vanilla ice cream with a balsamic reduction. This is a sure way to sweeten anyone’s mood.
Asparagus: Loaded with vitamin E, the key to a healthy sex life and treating impotence.
Raw Oysters: This is one of the most popular and well known “sexy” foods on the list. Oysters are high in Zinc, which increases sperm and testosterone production. Oysters also contain a hormone called dopamine, which increases libido.
Eggs: Hard boil some eggs and spread them with a little caviar on the top, and you have an aphrodisiac explosion that is sure to make waves long after the meal is finished!
Chocolate: Finally, what we have all been waiting for– the chocolate! What better way to a women’s heart than chocolate! Nibbling on a piece of dark chocolate immediately produces a chemical called phenylethylamine, which is believed to produce the feeling of “being in love.” So, a gift of chocolate on Valentine’s Day should sweep your beloved off his or her feet and straight into your arms.
