Chili Ginger Glazed Salmon
This dinner recipe contains two aphoristic foods: chiles and honey. Chiles get your blood pumping, increasing circulation and stimulating nerve endings so that you feel more turned on. Honey is filled with B vitamins, needed for testosterone production, and boron, which helps the body use and metabolize estrogen. Lore has it that the term 'honeymoon' comes from an old tradition in which newlyweds drank a honey drink for 30 days after marriage to help them get acquainted in the bedroom, and thus set the foundation for a healthy marriage.
