54 Sexy (and clean) Aphrodisiac Dinner Recipes for getting your groove on | TheRoastedRoot.com #paleo #keto #glutenfree

Valentine’s Day is coming up…you ready for this?

Do you partake?

Can we speak about sexy things?

If it were up to me, we’d talk about sex and poo more. Intimacy (not just sex…but the connecty stuff) is an essential vitamin, and we all have varying needs in volume. If you’re deficient in it, your mind and body suffer.

Let’s face it: at a certain point in a relationship, the prioritization for intimacy decreases, which can lead to deficiencies for one or both partners. 

From my standpoint, connection (this includes friendship), intimacy, and sex are pivotal in a healthy lasting relationship. For this reason, I thought I would do us all a solid and round up some sultry, sexy aphrodisiac dinner recipes to fire up you and your partner’s mojo on Valentine’s Day.

Even if you don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, these dinner recipes are marvelous for any date night. You don’t need to use a holiday as an excuse to have a lovely evening in with your special someone.

So what are some aphrodisiac foods? I’m SO GLAD you asked!

Some of the most common aphrodisiac foods, which are known to increase blood circulation and get the love/sex neurons in your brain and loins firing are:

Fish & seafood (particularly oysters), avocado, chili peppers, olive oil, asparagus, chocolate, figs, berries, arugula, bananas, honey, pine nuts, artichokes, maca, garlic, cinnamon, pomegranate, cherries, pumpkin seeds, beets, almonds, ginger, coconut water, vanilla, and more!!

In general, you’re aiming for a meal that feels nourishing, complete, and satisfying without causing inflammation. In essence, stick with clean and healthful versus carb and dairy-laiden…and avoid fried food like the plague. Your goal is to get your freak on prior to falling into a sweet, sweet sex coma…not going into a full-tilt food coma before anything fun happens.

All of the recipes in this roundup are gluten-free, and the majority of them are paleo. There are also tons of keto (low-carb) options! We’re aiming for a romantic, sexy meal that is also clean and nutritious.

I have broken out the recipes by type of animal protein. I hope you enjoy!
