Whether dining out for a romantic date or showing your love by preparing someone a special meal, there is no question that eating is a sensual act. But some foods have earned special distinction as super sexy libido boosters. For our Food & Sex issues, the Ms. Fit editorial staff decided to put the sexiest foods to the test.
Ms. Fit: Tell me about Raw Girls. What do you do?
Amy: Each week, we prepare a box of gourmet raw foods to be delivered to your door. All prepared simply, with local ingredients we source from local farmers in and around Memphis. In addition, we have a gourmet cold pressed juice business called: Raw Girls Juicy Cleanse, where we deliver cold pressed juices, super food smoothies, Chinese herbs, supplements and raw foods, all to support a healthy cleanse that folks won’t starve while participating in.
Ms. Fit: Let me know a little bit about who each of you are and your backgrounds.
Amy: I’m a passionate foodie who loves to work with local produce and make friends with local farmers. I attribute all that’s great about our food to the farmer. They are the ones cultivating the soil, and harvesting mineral rich produce that sustains us, as opposed to processed foods that deplete us. I base my entire menu each week on what I can find locally.

Here are some suggestions to start loving yourself up today.
