The power of aphrodisiac food has been celebrated for centuries. Casanova was said to share oysters with his paramours to whet their sexual appetites. Greek and Roman cultures enjoyed a parade of ripe fruits and exotic dishes before engaging in sensual pleasures. It has even been said that a delicious meal is the quickest way to a man (or woman's) heart. Afterall, what courtship would be complete without a romantic dinner?
Nutrition plays a vital role in love and lovemaking. The quality of our diet has a great deal to do with the quality of our sex. Many nutritious foods can stir libido, revive sexual function and enhance overall health, especially when served up in a sensual way.
Take the time to savor each meal. Nutritious foods fuel our sexual energy, but it is the art of eating that can be truly erotic.
A lovingly prepared meal served in the proper ambience can precipitate passion. To help set the mood for a night of romance, try some of the following:
For a real adventure, try a picnic in a secluded park, on the beach, or even in the bedroom. Pack light foods that can be fed to each other such as strawberries and chocolate, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt, French bread and low-fat cheese. Wear something sexy. And don't forget a blanket. Treat each course as an overture to lovemaking.
Most importantly, eat well and with pleasure. 1
