Did you wake up one day and realize you no longer had a sex drive? Everything else in your life might be on fire - your career ambitions, your fully ticked to-do list, your cash flow, your kids’ school reports, your gym goals - but when it comes to your relationship and your sex drive, there’s no fire, no passion there. Somewhere along the line, having a healthy, fun sex life slipped way down to the bottom of your priorities. You stopped having sex as much, and then you stopped wanting sex as much. Your libido is flat-lining. You need a recipe that will jumpstart your sex drive.
At the end of the day you feel worn out, ready for the couch and Netflix (with no chill). In the mornings you’re rushing out the door. On the weekends - well, what weekends, right? They buzz by in a flurry of socializing, kids, cooking, and errands. A lack of sex drive can be a real strain on a relationship and a source of much personal anxiety and worry. Sex is not only fun, it’s also excellent for your hormonal health and hormonal balance. I’m here to tell you that you can boost your sex drive quite simply - just by choosing to eat the right foods that will support your sex drive-supportive hormones and give nutrient-rich fuel to your libido. Use food as your foreplay and you’ll want sex more and enjoy sex more!
A salad recipe to boost your sex drive
I know one of the reasons you have no sex drive is because you’re tired. You have no time and scheduling in sex seems so...unsexy. That’s why I’ve created a super simple, easy salad recipe that is packed full of sex drive-boosting nutrients and minerals. It’s quick to whip up as many nights of the week you like and it will jumpstart both you and your partner’s libido. All good changes start with one small step, and here is that small step. Make this salad part of a romantic evening dinner (swap out the takeout and sofa for nourishing food and candlelight) with your man. Make it for date night. Make it for your work lunches so you get back from the office with a more spring in your step! The FLO Living protocol is full of simple recipes - I’m not one for fancy, time-consuming kitchen moves - and this salad showcases how easy it can be for you to move beyond all your symptoms of hormonal imbalance, not only low sex drive.

The walnuts in this special, seductive salad recipe contain omega-3 fatty acids that increase production of Viagra-like chemicals that promote arousal and blood flow. Watermelon has a Viagra-like effect increasing blood vessels and blood flow. Pumpkin seeds contain Zinc – the ultimate sex mineral for boosting testosterone - the sex hormone both you and your partner need in good amounts to feel the love. Asparagus is rich in folate and that is the chemical released during an orgasm – priming you to be ready for more orgasms. Celery helps your body produce more pheromones - hormones that makes you desirable to your partner. This is a sexy, science-based salad!
My salad recipe to jumpstart your sex drive - the Super Sex Drive Salad
6 slices of watermelon
1 bunch asparagus
¼ cup raw pumpkin seeds
¼ cup raw walnuts
2 stalks celery
2 T olive oil
2 T lemon juice
Sea salt or pink salt
Cut asparagus into two inch pieces and steam lightly so still crunchy. Cut watermelon into match sticks the size of asparagus. Use spice grinder to grind pumpkin seeds and walnuts. Toss into salad. Break out your mandolin and shred some celery paper-thin and top the salad. Drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of sea salt and lemon juice.
So delicious, sexy, and sex drive boosting - definitely one of my FLO-food fav’s.
