Salmon is a fish that is very easy to cook, but never fails to impress at the dinner table. It's another great source of omega 3.
"Research suggests omega 3 enhances your mood, helps balance your hormones, and aids the healthy production of sex hormones," reveals Vagnini.
Spicing it up with some chilli and ginger is also beneficial as "both chilli and ginger can contribute to good cardiovascular health and can increase blood flow around the body," she points out. Ginger is also a source of magnesium, an essential nutrient when it comes to sperm production.
A side of asparagus means that you're getting a decent portion of vitamin E, which is important for healthy skin and eyes. There's some evidence that this vegetable is an aphrodisiac too - it's rich in folate which increases a chemical called histamine in the body.
Holland and Barrett's Nutritionist Hannah Moffit says: "When you eat asparagus it produces histamine in the body, which may lead to more frequent orgasms and a better chance of orgasm during intercourse."
