A Healthier Choice for Valentine’s Day

February 11th, 2009

If you’re looking forward to sharing Valentine’s Day with someone special but you don’t want to ruin your diet by eating all that chocolate, there are healthier alternatives that you can really enjoy.

A lot of fruits and vegetables have been proven to have compounds in them which put people in the mood for love. By incorporating them into a home-cooked, romantic dinner, it’s more likely that the sparks will fly. Avocadoes, almonds, and strawberries are some of the best choices, and they are all great foods that can easily be added to the menu without a lot of difficult planning and preparation.

Citrus fruit, figs, and seafood can also have the same kind of stimulatory effect, helping couples to enjoy their romantic time together even more than they otherwise would. These aren’t gimmicky foods that are supposed to enhance sexuality and don’t really do anything. They are proven to have compounds and minerals and vitamins in them that can help stimulate the body. They are also good for you, so if you’re trying to lose a little weight or be healthier overall, that’s another added benefit.
