Food, sleep, and sex are 3 basic human needs and some of my favorite things in life. You've seen my food, so why not give you a glimpse into my sleep/romantic life too. Welcome to the Bloghungry/Popmuse bedroom. It's green.. It's cozy.. It's full of passion. To create some passion in your own life why not study up on some aphrodisiac foods. I'm not a big believer in them chemically, but I do believe in the psycho-physiological powers of food (visual, tactile, olfactory, aural). Here are a few trial snacks for the love or lust object in your life.
A symbol of fertility throughout the ages. The aroma is thought to induce passion in a female. Try serving Marzipan (almond paste) in the shapes of fruits for a special after-dinner treat.
The Aztecs referred to chocolate "nourishment of the Gods". Chocolate contains chemicals thought to effect neurotransmitters in the brain and a related substance to caffeine called theobromine. Chocolate contains more antioxidant (cancer preventing enzymes) than does red wine. The secret for passion is to combine the two. For a sensuous treat, try a glass of Cabernet with a bit of dark chocolate. Pine Nuts
Zinc is a key mineral necessary to maintain male potency and pine nuts are rich in zinc. Pine nuts have been used to stimulate the libido as far back as Medieval times. Serve pine nut cookies with a dark espresso for a stimulating dessert. Pineapple
Rich in vitamin C and is used in the homeopathic treatment for impotence. Add a spear to a sweet Rum drink for a tasty prelude to an evening of passion.
