Set the Mood with Sensual Snacks from Kimberly Snyder

Celebrity nutritionist and author of The Beauty Detox Solution, Kimberly Snyder, eating right isn’t about dieting and restriction, but feeding your body the beauty-boosting nutrients it craves.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Kimberly Snyder understands that feeling sexy is just as important as feeling fit, when it comes to boosting your confidence. Physical intimacy is a major factor in maintaining a healthy committed relationship, so don’t let daily stresses get you so bogged down that sex is the last thing on your mind instead, nibble on foods that possess aphrodisiac properties. 

I don't know about you, but after kids and the house, bills and errands, cooking and, well, the list goes on and on, sex can be one of the last things on my mind. But, after reading all of this information I have learned a lot about what these foods really offer. I say, why not give them a try. 
There is obviously a lot of studying and science behind this information, done by some observant and intelligent people.

An aphrodisiac (named for the goddess of love, Aphrodite) is a food, drink or substance that enhances sexual desire by increasing blood flow, reducing stress or positively affecting neurotransmitters, factors which improve libido. Add these items to your grocery list to kiss your bedroom blahs goodbye, and spice up your love life:
