WARNING: Do not scroll down if you are offended by erect fruits and vegetables!
Mother nature had quite a sense of humor this year in our food forest, but it got me thinking more about potential benefits of eating such peculiar looking fruits. Several foods are rumored to have qualities that can improve romance, fertility and promote healthy reproductive organs. Some are even said to increase stamina, reduce stress or even attract your partner.
For example, evidence of Avocados being consumed by the Mesoamericans goes back almost 10,000 years. It gets its name from the word ahuacatl, which means “testicle” because of its shape and the fact that it grows in pairs. Aside from the origins of its name, the avocado has been known to boost vitality due to its high levels of vitamin E, which helps maintain youthful vigor and energy levels.
Whether these food’s overall effect on libido is significant or a placebo effect, it can’t hurt to add some fresh, organic foods into your diet!
