Valentine’s Day is one of the most loving (and costly) celebrations in the world because of the intensity of people’s overflowing emotions. Loving couples find just another reason to come closer and give an extra meaning to their love (or day). As we all know, love goes through the stomach first. Therefore, we must go for foods that to have a lot of fragrances, flavors and textures, dishes full of imagination and exciting combinations.
If you are planning a romantic dinner, then it would be good to have aphrodisiac foods around. These foods wake up the senses, predispose us to an after-dinner intimacy and guarantee great performance in love (yes, we mean in bed)! So let’s take a look at some aphrodisiac foods to get an idea of what your Valentine’s menu might include:
- Asparagus: Among the most delicious vegetables you can find in the market are asparagus. They are rich in vitamin E, stimulate erotic desire and help in the production of performance-enhancing hormones. Try them as an appetizer or as part of a rich, colorful salad. Warning here, to those who produce body odors due to their consumption. You know who you are!
- Oysters: Oysters are known for their aphrodisiac properties. They contain a high amount of zinc and help increase dopamine, predisposing males to what to do next. You can enjoy them as a main dish, as they are quite light as an option.
- Banana: Another aphrodisiac food is our loving banana. Rich in potassium but also in bromelain, banana helps stimulate the reproductive system and enhances libido. A banoffee is the perfect dessert for Valentine’s Day! Don’t over-eat though, because you might end up bloated on the sofa.
- Figs: Figs strengthen the body, while their amino acids are catalytic for endurance during erotic encounters. A fig salad is a cool and rich-flavored choice!
- Avocado: It is rich in potassium and folic acid. As a result, we are talking about a super food that idyllically accompanies the romantic Valentine’s Day table. It combines perfectly with shrimp in a salad and … oysters. Yep.
- Chocolate: Everyone loves chocolate and its aphrodisiac properties make it even more welcome today! Chocolate contains dopamine-releasing compounds. This are the same substances that are released at the top of sexual intercourse. So, chocolate should not be left out from your Valentine’s menu!
Any Ideas for a Drink?
Since we have covered a wide range of foods that can be combined for the perfect, romantic dinner, we are only left to find the right alcoholic drink. Of course, alcohol should be modestly consumed, since our performance is inversely proportional to the amount of alcohol we consume per day. If you want a light, refreshing drink with aphrodisiac properties, then I suggest:
- One dose of vodka
- Two doses of soda (carbonated water)
- One dose of pomegranate juice
Stir all in a tall glass, filled with ice. This is a tasty drink, full of antioxidants coming from the pomegranate and can be pleasantly consumed. In addition, its color is extremely warm and predisposes the couple beautifully. After all, red is the color of passion, and Valentine’s Day with such a menu can overflow with passion and eroticism. So good luck and we wish you will continue to celebrate your love so loudly every day of the year!
