Cara’s Cucina: Foods to Put You in The Mood

Today on Cara’s Cucina, Cara Di Falco travels to Edison to visit with Dr. Derrick DeSilva and get his professional opinion on whether or not food can really put you in the mood!

“There is some validity to foods being certain aphrodisiacs. And it all has to do with the properties of the food,” DeSilva says.

What foods make the grade? Dr. DeSilva shared some of the more unusual ones that you may not have thought of, like cayenne pepper.

“When you use something like cayenne pepper, what happens? You start to sweat, your nose starts to run, you may start to get a little warm. The reason for that is that, it’s called a vasodilator, it opens up the blood vessels and improves blood flow. And, of course, we know how important blood flow is as far as an aphrodisiac goes.”

Asparagus, avocados and bananas also made the cut, as well as honey and oysters.

Finally, what’s Valentine’s Day without chocolate? But be sure to get the right kind.

“We’re not talking about milk chocolate. We’re talking about 70-80% cocoa. You have to go for the dark chocolate, not the stuff that you would perhaps get on Valentine’s Day. You have to go for the good 70-80% chocolate.”

Pick up these foods today and have a great Valentine’s Day. To read the complete article, click here.
