Brussel Sprouts

Brussel sprouts have no known aphrodisiac effects but they do fall into the #superfood arena as they help lower cholesterol, fight inflammation and early studies suggest they may even help fight certain forms of cancer which makes sense since there is a correlation between inflammation and disease. Brussel sprouts are also low on the glycemic index. Being healthy is sexy. Not to mention they look really cool on the stalk!
