Here’s a great article I found in my research that sets a stage for strong, healthy sex with nutrition from one of my favorite vegetables, kale. I have added my favorite recipe below. I hope you try and enjoy. For me it is a turn-on to prepare as well as to eat… especially when you use you hands and massage the kale with LOVE!
Kale Can Save Your Love-Life!
Has “Not tonight honey, I have a headache” become your old standby?
It might not be a headache killing your love life, it could be adrenal fatigue or low libido, which are easy to correct through diet. That’s why new research on supercharged foods
are being studied for their ability to titillate brain receptors and boost libido.
Think you might have adrenal fatigue?
Many people have adrenal fatigue and don’t know it. If you need caffeine or sugar to wake up on the morning, feel tired by 3pm, and then have trouble falling asleep at night, you might have adrenal fatigue.
The best way to create a long-lasting energy buzz is to incorporate superfoods
like kale into your diet. These kinds of foods also help to stabilize blood sugar levels and have the added benefited of keeping you feeling fuller longer. Slow-release carbohydrates, like the kinds in kale, also stabilize blood sugar levels and keep you from feeling that afternoon lull that often results from eating processed carbs or sugary foods.
Aren’t in the mood for sex?
Well, kale not only tastes great but it can boost your mood.
“I believe in eating your leafy greens rather than popping synthetic pills,” says Dr. Sara Gottfried, Harvard grad and board-certified OB/GYN, one of the leading experts on libido, who believes that diet plays a big role in s -x drive.
She isn’t the only MD who thinks that. My co-author of 50 Shades of Kale
, Dr. Drew Ramsey, an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University, and a leading expert on brains foods, says that kale contains a whole list of nutrient you need to maintain mood, such as Vitamin B6.
Gained a few pounds and not feeling sexy?
Well, it’s time to get your greens on!
Leafy greens not only double your nutrient load, they also happen to be naturally low in calories, fats, and carbs. This means you can shed pounds without have to follow a complicated diet. Kale is one of the few vegetables which is also high in protein. If you crave salty chips, try crispy kale chips instead. Not only will you get over 100% of your needs for vitamin A (just to name one nutrient), you’ll cut way back on calories, saturated fat, and carbs.
Mare’s Kale Salad with Mushroom ‘Escargot’
Fresh kale -1 bunch
Fresh Parsley – 1/2 bunch
Avocado – 1 ripe
Red Onion – 1/2 med
Black Olives – 6 ozs
Pine Nuts – 1 cup [optional] or Soaked Almonds or Slivered and or Walnuts are good variations
Marinade: [use seasonings to taste]
Olive Oil – 1/4 cup
Tamari or other soy sauce – 2 T
Cayenne pepper – 1/8 tsp
Chopped Garlic [or garlic powder] 3 cloves
Cumin seeds whole, ground or use both 1/4 tsp
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Braggs Amino Acid – splash
Sea salt to taste
Wash and shake or spin dry fresh kale and parsley.
Remove spines from kale and chop horizontally in 1/2″ slices. Put in a large bowl and pour a few tablespoons of olive oil onto the kale and massage it thoroughly with your hands. As you are massaging the leaves focus on positive, passionate loving thoughts and send them into the greens. If you and your partner massage the leaves together it’s fun and it increases the aphrodisiac powers. Massaging helps tenderize the texture, continue until all the leaves are oiled and shiny and the fiber appears softer by squeezing and massaging.
Mix together marinade ingredients. Prepare mushrooms for grilling cut off part of the stem and put in a lightly oiled baking pan upside down so that you can fill the mushroom with the marinade.. Lightly score the mushroom cup radiating out from the center being careful not to pierce through to the bottom so the marinade seeps in.
Sprinkle some pine nuts on top and set aside while you prepare the other ingredients.
Chop the red onions in slices along the grain in crescent moon shapes – about a 1/4 inch thick.
Bake mushrooms at 325° for about 20 minutes. With cooking, less is more nutritious; which makes it a more potent aphrodisiac.
Raw foodies – Slice them in small escargot size and shapes, radiating out from the center. Then mix the mushrooms and onions into the marinade sauce. Add the pine nuts [or other nuts]. Toss. Allow the flavors to mingle a few hours up to overnight
Slice in half and score the avocado in a crisscross pattern into 1/2 inch size cubes. Spoon out of the shell unto the chopped greens.
Pour the marinated mushrooms, onions and pine nuts on the greens and stir well. Add whole olives and chopped parsley and toss lightly,
Serve as a side dish or a light meal. This salad keeps well in the refrigerator for at least a few days… Making it a great travel food. With all the traveling I do I love my kale salad because it feels so wholesome and nourishing and gives me great energy, aids digestion and fuels my libido making me ready for love! I hope you try it and please give me your feedback either way. Enjoy!
