Just when you thought you were past holiday eating and indulgence, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner with loads of chocolate, wine and decadence. Instead of spending the Day of Love eating rich foods that leave you feeling bloated and heavy, amp up the chemistry between you and your partner with these deliciously sexy and slimming Valentines Day Food:
Not only do chili peppers boost metabolism, they also contain concentrated quantities of capsaicin, a potent chemical that increases the heart rate, amplifies the sensitivity of nerve endings, and stimulates the release of endorphins. Try adding a dash of Cajun to your favorite home-cooked vegetable sauté.
Amplify your sex drive with vitamin B6 and potassium loaded asparagus. This body healthy green is a natural diuretic that is low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals which streamline your body and reduce bloat.
If you don’t believe that mustard is indeed a sexy food, maybe a quick history lesson will change your mind. Monks in the Middle Ages were prohibited from eating mustard because it was believed to intensify sexual temptation. This tangy yellow condiment increases adrenalin, lowers blood pressure, and boosts metabolism. Use it as dipping sauce for the asparagus.
As though you need another reason to eat chocolate. Eating high quality, antioxidant loaded cacao encourage the production of serotonin, a feel-good hormone that amplifies feelings of well-being and happiness. Look for dark chocolate that is at least 80% cacao and savor the richness.
Even if their suggestive shape doesn’t excite you, the high levels of zinc in oysters increase testosterone levels. Casanova was rumored to eat at least 50 a day to support his romantic escapades. You can probably manage with a mere 6. Plus, if you don’t regularly consume oysters, it’s a fun, adventurous thing to do to celebrate your love.
The day of love is just one week away, so get started by eating these sexy and slimming Valentines Day Food today!
