We've all heard that oysters are an aphrodisiac, but did you know that avocados are, too? How about arugula? Even honey will help you get your groove on. Below are a few foods to help woo your loved one, and give you a boost of nutrition as well!
Arugula or "rocket" is rich in vitamins A and C, both of which are essential for getting the body ready for sexy time. It's also said to help clear the mind, so if work stress is holding you back, make a big salad of rocket to help fire your - er - rocket! Try this healthy Citrus Arugula Salad With Seared Scallops. For more "sexy boost" toss in some strawberries and use honey instead of pomegranate molasses.
Strawberries Sure, it's seductive to nibble on this fruit while making sexy eyes at your honey, but that's just part of the one-two punch of this berry. Strawberries actually contain more vitamin C than any other berry and they're also packed with potassium, folic acid, iron and other essential minerals that'll help turn that lackluster libido into a burning fire!

Honey They don't call it a honeymoon for nothing! Even Hippocrates prescribed it for sexual vigor. It's easily metabolized and is rich in enzymes, amino acids and B-vitamins.
