If you want to be a good lover you have to eat your vegetables
Eating a limited selection of, or worse yet, totally skipping vegetables limits your body’s potential in almost every way, including that way! Every vegetable has a different array of nutrients, all of which are important not only for overall health but specifically for sexual health. That’s why Step #4 of the 10 Steps to Sexy is to eat a vegetable rainbow.
Choose vegetables in a wide variety of colors
Making a colorful collection of vegetables a sizable portion of your diet will reward you not only with a delicious variety of flavors and textures but with energy, endurance and youthful vitality. Best of all, unlike many foods for which moderation is key, vegetables are low in calories and cholesterol. So indulge any time hunger strikes!
Most vegetables are high in fiber. Now it may seem peculiar to say that fiber is key to a healthy sexy life. But it’s true. Not only will fiber keep you looking good and feeling bloat-free but it also helps reduce blood cholesterol levels. In doing so, it benefits the heart. And what’s good for the heart is great for your sex life.
What are some of the nutrients in vegetables?
Eating vegetables rich in potassium, liked cooked spinach and broccoli, potatoes, sweet potatoes and eggplant, may give your libido an extra boost. Not only can potassium-rich vegetables help prevent bone loss, they can lower blood pressure and keep that heart pumping at an optimal rate. This is good not only for longevity but it can positively impact stamina, arousal and orgasm. (Learn more about the benefits of potassium-rich foods.)
Of course, vegetables rich in potassium are not the only ones that will benefit your sex life. You’ll also want to incorporate veggies into your diet that are rich in minerals including manganese, zinc, magnesium, calcium. Don’t forget about folate for fertility. (This nutrient is particularly important for women over 35 who are trying to conceive.) And you also want to eat vegetables with vitamins A, B12, C and E. Like we said–you need to eat a vegetable rainbow!
