Centuries ago Romans discovered an unlikely quality of this leafy green. Finding that those who ate it on a regular basis were more sexually energized, it became revered as a powerful aphrodisiac. It has since been used as a sensual enhancer throughout many regions of the world, and often combined with other aphrodisiac herbs like lavender and chicory to create a somewhat of a love potion.
Arugula’s aphrodisiac qualities may stem from its stimulating effects on the body, providing power and energy that vitalizes the system.
No matter what your reasoning for eating it, Arugula is a fantastic food to add to the diet. Like spinach it is a versatile green too.
Don’t limit yourself to salads, try adding arugula to pastas, grains, sandwiches, wraps and soups, or blend it into a delicious spicy pesto! What are you making with your arugula?
