Spicy Apple Sauce Cake

A Valentine's Day Recipe for Health, Sex, Happiness and Love

One of the things we all share in common is the need to fuel our bodies with nutritious food. The foods we eat are the fuel that supports what I refer to as living a successful life. Good health, great sex, lasting love and blissful happiness is my definition of a successful life.

Did you know that some of the foods we eat and how we put them together in recipes support our health, affect our happiness, improve our sex lives, and can even bring love into our lives?

The definition of a recipe is a set of directions with a list of ingredients for making or preparing something; it's a formula for a means to a desired end or a medical prescription. Now if we follow Hippocrates philosophy and let food be our medicine, sharing recipes and preparing foods may just lead us to lives of health, sexual enjoyment, happiness and love.

In my book, Recipes for Health, Sex, Happiness and Love (enter code "doctorlynn" for a 20 percent discount), I explore the medicinal quality of foods and how to combine them into meals that not only support health, sex, happiness and love, but also reveal the secret to living a successful life.

Let me share a recipe from my book. Spicy Applesauce Cake is a rendition of an ancient recipe used by the Egyptians and Phoenicians to bring health, sexual happiness and love into their lives. It is a celebratory cake filled with healthy ingredients.

Before I give you the recipe, let me explain the health benefits of the ingredients:

Buttermilk

Buttermilk is a natural and healthy digestive aid that supplies a rich source of calcium, vitamin B12, riboflavin and potassium. Riboflavin (or B2) plays a key role in energy metabolism and the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Calcium supports bone growth; B12's key role is the functioning of the brain and the nervous system; potassium is essential for the functioning of cells; and phosphorous is a component of phospholipids, which form all cell membranes.
