Foods That Help Spark Romance On Valentines Day
Want to spark romance on Valentines Day? these foods are easy to find in the grocery store, and will help you impress your beloved without doing the same flowers-and-chocolates as everybody else does:
Strawberries and chocolate
Strawberries are red and juicy, sweet without being overly sweet and pair well with chocolate. Buy a fondue maker or a chocolate fountain to sweeten the romance. Dip your lover’s strawberry into the chocolate and feed the strawberry to him or her. It is a very intimate action and is likely to remind your lover of passion and kissing.
Raspberries, bananas, and whipped cream
According to Gourmet Sleuth, raspberries and bananas are a natural aphrodisiac. Whipped cream (you can find a plant-based too) adds an element of fun. Layer raspberries, add whipped cream and layer bananas. Or mix bananas and raspberries together and add whipped cream on top. Kiss each other using a raspberry between your lips. The kiss will be juicy and sweet.
Dark chocolate and red wine
Dark chocolate has antioxidants to improve your health and enhance your natural beauty. Chocolate releases happiness with every bite. Red wine also contains antioxidants (from the grapes) and can recreate the lighted-headed feeling of initial romantic spark due to the alcohol. Enjoy it as a dessert after a light meal of vegetables and steak.
Gourmet Sleuth lists the following vegetables as aphrodisiacs: asparagus, arugula, and carrots. Lightly cook the asparagus and carrots in butter and add to the arugula for a light salad. Drizzle with a sweet vinaigrette and top with almonds, a considered love nut. Adding small steaks to the meal will provide the protein you will need if the Valentine dinner goes as well as planned. If you are a vegetarian, here is a recipe to give you ideas.
Gourmet Sleuth recommends serving “fresh Black Mission figs in a cool bowl of water as it is done in Italy and be sure to eat with your fingers”. Not only are figs healthy and uniquely flavored, they supposedly stimulate sexual desire. Have Italian music playing softly in the background to add to the romantic atmosphere.
If you want to increase the sex appeal, sprinkle the room with rose petals or place flowers periodically around to fragrance your home. Moisturize for soft skin and spritzed on your favorite cologne or perfume. The atmosphere will increase the aphrodisiac effects of the foods. Most importantly, have fun with your partner. Romance should be fun as well as delicious.
Chocolates Relation To Valentines Day
Chocolate is believed to have been discovered approx 2000 years ago in the tropicals rainforests of the Americas. The Discover that made the Mayan culture to be the first to consume it (so believed). The Mayans referred to this new discovery as food for the Gods. Over the years, many traditions and beliefs of using chocolate for faith, health, strength, and sexual passion have led to the association of chocolate and Valentine’s Day.
The early Aztecs believed that chocolate was an aphrodisiac. But it was in the French Royal court that chocolate gained its reputation as being an aphrodisiac, or if you like, a substance that arouses sexual desire. It is believed that sometime during the seventeenth century, lovers tended to exchange chocolate with one another on Valentine’s day.
In the early history of chocolate, the elite would make liquid concoctions of chocolate to drink. They believed this drink to be an elixir of love, life, and fertility. It wasn’t until 1780, that the first machine-made chocolate was produced in Barcelona. The first solid chocolate bar made by Fry & Sons in the early 1800s and the first Valentine’s Day box of chocolates was created in 1868, by Richard Cadbury.
Chocolate is so valued in our world today, that even the United States Government rations it out to the troops and people who participate in space missions, as part of their meal packs.
The love drug
Though chocolate has never been scientifically identified as an aphrodisiac, there is a small amount of phenylethylamine (PEA), also known as “the love drug” in it. There is nothing to prove that the PEA that is found in foods increases the PEA in the brain. Even without the science involved in eating chocolate, people still have the belief that chocolate most definitely has euphoric results.
Valentine’s Day is a day that is associated with love. It is commonly advertised with symbols of hearts and cupids, and people of all kinds value the idea of love. Take a moment to imagine what the sales for chocolate would be if the symbolization for selling it were a sexual enhancement or a love elixir.
So in today’s world, as with tradition, we take all of our beliefs and our love for chocolate and utilize it to sweeten the heart of someone we love on Valentine’s Day. And in some cases hope for that aphrodisiac effect.
