Oatmeal is not only nutritious but also very easy to make. In certain cultures, it also serves as a metaphor for reproduction and fertility. By achieving a balance between testosterone and oestrogen, oats can boost libido. An alkaloid found in oats is thought to increase vitality, particularly in men. Nitric oxide, which is generated in the blood during arousal, and boron, which may control hormone levels, are both included in honey. Add some blueberries with antioxidant properties and you have a breakfast fit for Aphrodite.
