Foods of Love - Food as Aphrodisiacs

Is the quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach?   I'd say that's pretty accurate.  And if you're going to feed that big lug why not feed him foods that satisfy more than just his hunger! 

For centuries people have found certain foods have a positive affect on ones libido.  So today I'm going to review some of these foods.  After writing this, I'm sure I'll be out the door and heading to the local market!  :-D

Well DUH!  Alcohol will lower ones inhibitions and increases confidence.  Just be careful not to indulge in TOO much of the bubbly otherwise you'll go from a sexy night in bed to a miserable night next to the toilet.  My friend Yvette over at Yvette Unedited Blog is going to share with us some choice wine picks, be on the look out for her tips.

 What do men need to help keep a nice healthy level of testosterone?  Zinc!  And Caviar has plenty of zinc.  Zinc helps the formation of testosterone in the male body, so eat in and wait a few hours.  In a nutshell caviar is a processed, salted, non-fertilized fish egg.  (sturgeons and salmon are often used)  Costs can range from $12 for per ounce to $62 per ounce and up!

 We all know chocolate is a natural mood enhancer.  Chocolate was actually banned in some monasteries centuries ago for it's natural positive affects on your love making mojo.   It contains both a sedative which relaxes and lowers inhibitions and a stimulant to increase activity and the desire for physical contact.  Oh la la!

From its obviously phallic shape, the banana easily gets you thinking sexually.  (well, women at least)  More practically, however, the banana has loads of both vitamin B and potassium, which are important in the human production of sex hormones.  Is that a banana in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

(fine fine, something for the ladies)

You might not think of garlic as a sexy food, but after a cert or two it has some very surprising benefits to the body.  Garlic is a bulb that is incredibly high in allicin, a compound that increases blood flow in a serious way, yielding increased sexual stamina and wild energy!  "Garlic confit" has the same benefits yet is milder in odor, always a good idea.
