Food. We gotta have it. We also crave it. There are times when I crave milk, chocolate, barbecue chips, and garlic…lots of it. Sometimes I crave all of them at the same time.
At this time of year, though, a lot is being made of special mood foods known as aphrodisiacs. Well, in some way I guess this is all connected to the matters of love.
Just to cover a few…
1. Did you know that chile peppers release endorphins? I wonder if you can replace your workout with a good feast of chile peppers?
2. This is one that I never heard of…peaches. Now, it might make Steve Miller want to shake a gal’s tree, but because of the peaches being packed with potassium, vitamins A & C, and iron, the sweet, juicy fruit helps in fueling certain indoor sports. Note to self: When you get a house, get a peach tree. What? Fruit trees are a nice addition to any yard.
3. Need some stamina? Eat almonds. Hmm….I use almond milk in my cereals and smoothies instead of milk. I must be banking some stamina. Of course, it will go to waste, but I’ll be ready. Heh.
4. Liquorice is said to enhance desire. I don’t think kissing someone that has eaten it would be so nice, though.
There are always the usual suspects, though: oysters, chocolate, and booze–especially wine. Personally, I’d have to agree with wine. Just sayin’.
