Day 19 #Loveuary ❤Aphrodisiacs


Apparently, there are a whole load of foodstuffs out there that have the aphrodisiac quality…

  1. Chillies
  2. Avocado
  3. Asparagus
  4. Bananas
  5. Chocolate
  6. Pomegranate
  7. Red Wine
  8. Salmon
  9. Walnuts
  10. Vanilla
  11. Watermelon
  12. Oysters…

Now, the above list is by no means exhaustive. There are many more items that are meant to affect our libido in a certain manner, and get us in the mood for lurve, if you know what I mean!

Looking at the items above, I would say I consume pretty much all of them, with the exception of red wine… sorry, can’t do red wine! And chillies, within limit.

If you’d asked me a week ago if I would try oysters, I would have reverted to a child and pretended to throw up! I have only recently started to eat fish regularly, and prawns are the only shellfish I will eat… unshelled of course!

But on the weekend, our whole family went to Loch Fyne, a seafood restaurant, as a treat for a few members of our family’s birthdays. I did shy away from the fish, and ordered a duck main, but I was brave enough to have salt and pepper squid for starters.

You can order oysters here too, singly, or in any numbers up to a dozen, and there are a few varieties from plain, to sweet chilli, horseradish and beetroot, to lime and tequila! My brother in law decided to order a selection and paraded them in front of me. Lil Man wanted to try, but shied away. Lil Princess and my mother in law said “No Thanks” firmly!

Hubby Dearest had a try, and then I got my guts up, and tried a Sweet Chilli one. And it was surprisingly nice! Admittedly it was in batter, I just could not have done that ‘slipping down your throat’ thing! The thought makes me heave!


Did it do anything aphrodisiacally??? Well I am afraid I can’t disclose that!

But if you know of anything that gives you a ‘boost’, Viagra aside, leave a comment below!

    Haha. I love oysters but never let it just slide down my throat. It seems like a waste to me!

    This post would make a great addition to Our Growing Edge, a link up just for new food adventures. It’s a fun way to share your new food experiences and flavours with other foodies and your post and link will be published in the group round up. This month’s theme is APHRODISIACS in honor of Valentines day this month. This includes any recipe or dining experience with chocolate, seafood (especially oysters), champagne or just a romantic meal.

    I suspect the aphrodisiacs only work if you think they do.Although chocolate–if it doesn’t work, at least you got to eat chocolate.

    I love seafood but never tried oysters. I also don’t feel the need to, to be honest. But of course, I heard of the aphrodisiacal effect. I just hope I will never be that in need … lol!

    I love squid (calamari). Also raw oysters. What I can’t do is the watermelon…any kind of melon makes me feel sick. I want to like it….but, no.

    I’m also with you on the red wine.

    On the other hand, I adore salmon, pomegranate, and avocado! =D

    My post will be up momentarily. I got so excited, I forgot to wait to comment here until I published there! =D
