Sexy Food for Sexy People
For centuries, man has attributed certain “sexy qualities” to certain foods. As science evolved, evidence was uncovered to actually substantiate those claims. Those Aztecs were pretty smart even without a microscope!
Of all the purported “sexy foods” out there, we have compiled our Fave Five:
Red has long been dubbed the #1 sexy color and these delectable berries truly wear it well. In a 2008 study it was found that wearing red was more appealing than cool colors such as blue.
Even with its voluptuous curves and beautiful color, the strawberry is much more than just a fashionista, it is an excellent source of folic acid, a B vitamin that helps ward off birth defects in women. We recommend taking them for a dip in dark chocolate. :)
The wonderful almond, though not particularly sexy in appearance, has been a symbol of fertility throughout antiquity. The infamous Samson wooed his Delilah with these tasty finger snacks.
There is more to the story: These little darlings help to lower cholesterol, as well as provide abundant doses of vitamin E, magnesium and fiber to improve your general well-being.
A love token in some parts of Italy, the alluringly, aromatic Basil was also the Greek Royal Herb. The aroma is so alluring it is said to be able to help cure headaches.
Beyond adding amazing flavor to a variety of recipes, Basil also has a warming effect on the body and helps to promote circulation.
The Spanish found the avocado so sexy that its consumption was prohibited by Priests.
Although these creamy treats pack a whollop in calories, they are also high in folic acid, vitamin B6, potassium, omega-3 fatty acids and oleic acid, which fights "bad" cholesterol. Guacamole in moderation anyone?
More precious than gold to the Greeks, and purported to be Cleopatra’s favorite food, the delectable texture of the Fig places it in our Fave Five.
Figs hold the highest overall mineral content of all the common fruits. An excellent source of potassium and calcium, these sexy little wonders are also high in vitamin B6 and manganese.
Even though the ancients had their own reasons for applying the sexy label to our Fave Five sexy foods, there are many numerous health benefits of each.
