Say hi to Hello Joyous!
An organic, plant-based, sustainable beauty brand here to bring more joy to your day.
Can you just imagine if Health Canada or the FDA released a statement that said:
"Avocados may increase your sex drive!!"
Avocado farmers would get rich fast and then probably run out of avocados! And the government wouldn't benefit one bit because after all, big pharma is making big bucks from the little blue pill. This is why I have my blog, dear readers -- for the ability to share my knowledge for what mother nature has so UN-selfishly provided us for thousands of years. Food that can heal us, energize us and get us in the mood.
In the past, I've written about foods to get you in the mood and not surprisingly, this is still one of my most well-read blogs I've ever posted. And since it's the week before Valentine's Day and many of you hope to get lucky, here are some more foods to get you in the mood. Keep in mind, if you have low sex drive, eating avocados every day from now till Sunday may not work if you are still stressed out and not sleeping. So I just don't want you to think that there is a magic cure. Eating well and then becoming well takes time. But if you put in the time to eat well today, you will not have to put in time for illness later on and you'll be that much closer to getting busy in the bedroom.
cholesterol . Eggs are great for sex drive because they are high in stress-reducing B6 and B5. I'm sure you know firsthand that when you are stressed out the last thing you feel like doing is getting busy in the bedroom. Eggs are also an amazing breakfast food to give you sustainable energy. Always starting your day with protein is a good idea and more energy in the morning may get you lucky!
Essential fatty acids are found in nuts which are vital as they provide the raw material for a healthy production of hormones. And for the men out there, did you know that the smell of almonds is supposed to arouse passion in females? Oooooh yaaaaa! Burt's Bees has a hand lotion that smells like almonds, called "chocolate is an obvious one. But what you may not know is that chocolate contains theobromine -- an alkaloid -- which is very similar to caffeine means more energy - budda boom budda bing! It also contains serotonin, the feel good happy-hormone. So when your lady tells you how much she loves chocolate you know there is some science behind it. Chocolate must be dark and organic to be worthy of eating for it's sex driving abilities and if that wasn't enough reason, chocolate is a source of anti-oxidants, which I know you need.
