The First Stabilizer of Health – Get Nutritionally Sound (Healthy Foods Feed a Healthy Sex Life!)

All week we have been talking about foods that increase our well-being and fight off disease.  Foods like high energy foods, rainbow foods and foods within the green light nutrition program.

Today, we are going to talk about some foods that feed a healthy and happy sex life!

Like many aspect of health, our sex drive and our moods are affected by what we put into our bodies.  

For example, fried and/or overly processed food along with too much saturated fat decreases your zest and vitality, leaving you feeling sluggish and inert.  

So you might want to forget the Kentucky Fried Chicken when you’re feeling frisky.  Fresh strawberries dipped in natural honey is a much sexier choice and doesn’t leave us feeling heavy or bogged down!   

You will also want to eliminate any foods that don’t agree with you.

For example, it is common for those with adrenal fatigue to have food allergies or intolerances to “white” flour or any foods that are rated high on the glycemic index.

Fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains and rich anti-oxidant foods all boost your sexual vitality “naturally.”

Vegetables especially have the antioxidants, minerals, and phytochemicals in the correct combination that help keep the blood sugar in balance, create better energy in the body and build up the immune system.  

Go for a variety of kinds and colors of produce, to give your body the mix of nutrients it needs for sexual harmony, vitality and balance.

Best picks are dark leafy greens, cooked tomatoes, and anything that’s a rich yellow, orange or red color.   

Also, sweet fruits like melons, mango’s, passion fruit and oranges can all enhance sexual function and heighten the sexual experience.  

Some sexy spices that can put some sizzle in your sex life are cinnamon, vanilla, carob, sweet paprika, sesame seeds and caraway seeds!

The presence of vitamins and natural chemicals found in these fruits, vegetables and spices supply the body with nutrients necessary to boost your energy production and sexual libido.    

Compared with people who consume a diet with only small amounts of fruits and vegetables with those who eat more generous amounts as part of a healthful diet are likely to feel more confident in their body and thus feel sexier!   

In the end, a lifestyle that supports healthy nutrition will also support a healthy sex life!    

So, are you feeling the love?

  6. Woo-hoo! Totally agree with all this Gena! Great post. What you eat really can help with your love life, as with all aspects of life. Also leaving a couple of hours after eating before getting amorous helps so your digestion isn’t competing with anything else you have on your mind. Here’s to a happy healthy love life!

    • Hi Andrea!!
      I totally agree that waiting a couple hours before getting amorous is a good idea to facilitate maximum digestion!
      I’m glad you enjoyed my post today and had some fun reading it!!

      Healthy Blessings!!

  7. I definitely agree with this!

    When we eat healthy we get energized in all the right places…WOO HOO! LOL.

    Of course this goes along with exercise because when we eat right and exercise we feel good about ourselves inside and out.

    Great article, Gena!

    • Amen to that Penny!!

      Absolutely, exercise is also a very important ingredient added into this mix of healthy goodness.

      I’m going to be conducting a series on exercise as well to illustrate this point as being one of the four stabilizers of health!

      Thank you Penny,
