This Valentine’s Day, treat yourself to a luscious, delectable, sensual and energy packed smoothie. Steve Gagne, the author of Food Energetics, explains in detail how each food, animal, or plant affects us on a nutritional, spiritual and emotional level. This is not a new notion, but a very ancient idea. In traditional Ayurvedic medicine the color of plants and fruits have historically been correlated with different organs and parts of the body. For instance, the phytonutrients found  in red fruits is considered helpful to the lymphatic system, a vital system that keeps blood flowing directly to the heart. And Maca, an ancient Peruvian superfood known to aid in reproductive function; helping to boost libido, balance hormones and increase fertility.

February 14th is a celebration of the heart, so what better way to help open your heart chakra than to drink some of the most ancient, healing and sexy foods. This red smoothie will elevate your mood, expand your heart and excite your taste buds.
