Healthy diet is one of the factors in boosting testosterone. If you don’t eat right and have a bad lifestyle, you are killing the production of your testosterone. You may not really aware of this, but there are foods that are actually lowering your testosterone. While there are foods that lower the production of your testosterone, there are also foods that boost its reproduction.
A few nutrients such as Vitamin C, D, B, minerals, zinc and magnesium are essential for building better T-levels.
Furthermore, here are some of the delicious and healthy recipes you can try in order to boost your testosterone:
Eggs baked in Avocado
Don’t underestimate the power of an egg. It is rich in protein which the testosterone needs the most. While avocado is a good source of mono-saturated fats, which when consumed raises the good cholesterol. Good cholesterol is what men need to raise up the production of their testosterone.
To do this, crack an egg in the core of an avocado then baked until the egg is done according to your preference. Top with bacon bits for extra savoury.
Pumpkin Protein Pancakes
Pancakes and waffles are staple breakfast servings. Instead of regular pancakes made out of flour, this recipe uses protein powder, pumpkin, eggs, pumpkin pie spice and baking powder.
To do this, combine all the ingredients, just like how you do regular pancakes, then cook. Drizzle with syrup for your choice.
Slow Cooked Sweet Potato Chili
Sweet potatoes are excellent, no-gluten, source of testosterone boosting carbohydrates. Combine these with chili, which is known as natural aphrodisiac food, will surely boost your testosterone level.
To do this, combine a can diced of tomato, a can of tomato sauce, chili powder, cayenne pepper, ground cumin, paprika, brown sugar, salt, sweet potatoes, onion, minced garlic, kidney beans and chicken broth in a slow cooker. Make sure that all the ingredients are mixed well. Cook in low heat for 8 hours.
Salmon Topped with Taragon, Parsley and Basil
Salmon has the highest levels of vitamin D than any other fish. Vitamin D is a core factor in testosterone production and reproduction. Herbs like basil are believed to be a natural aphrodisiac food.
To do this, spread a mixture of tarragon, parsley, garlic, and olive oil over the salmon fillet. Baked in a pre-heated oven, 425 F, about 10 minutes. Serve with drizzled lemon juice.
Toasted Coconut Tilapia with Pomegranate Salsa

In doing the salsa, combine tomatoes, red onion, pomegranate arils, chopped fresh cilantro, lime juice, orange juice, and a teaspoon of salt in a large mixing bowl. Serve with the tilapia.
