I keep looking for new suggestions for my radio vignettes (www.threeminutetherapist.com), and I found a list of great ideas to keep you pretty, sexy and healthy this summer.

1.I love the new Nair wax-that-goes-on -like deodorant for bikini lines. Simple (except for that dreaded waxing rippppp) but effective at keeping you smooth. What we do for esthetics.

2. Chia seeds. If you haven’t tried them you must. Sometimes called Salba, these seeds were part of those chia pets in the 70’s. They are now considered a superfood and are essential for an increased libido. One of nature’s highest source of omega-3 and fibre. They are rich in antioxidants, contain 18 amino acids, 3 times more iron than spinach, 6 times more calcium than milk and 15 times more magnesium than broccoli.

3. Protein puddings. I don’t know about you but I keep getting those cravings at 3 pm for something sweet, chocolatey and creamy. After binging a few times on instant pudding, I was turned onto this recipe by my friend Norah at Nutrichem. http://www.balanceyourlifestyle.net/fitliciouskitchen_Whey_Protein_Powder_Flavour_Boosters_Purest_Protein_Cleanest_Protein_Powder.html
Basically it’s 4 calorie flavour powder (the chocolate is great), almond milk, protein powder and a bit of ice. I throw in some of the chia seeds on top. yum.

4. Although I keep both the plastic and metal kinds in my office most women aren’t comfortable with playing with a speculum. But many women live in fear of their next doctor’s visit because of the probing. But FemSpec, a soft, inflatable alternative, makes your gynecological exam a lot more bearable. Your doctor inserts it like a tampon, then gently inflates it using the tiny handheld pump. Not only is it comfortable, but it’s disposable — so you don’t have to worry about who used it before you.

5. Here is a great list of the top 18 best new sex toys complements of Women’s health magazine http://www.womenshealthmag.com/sex-and-relationships/best-sex-products. I’m doing a couple of field trips to the high end sex shop with my libido workshop that ended up looking like a Sex in the City Rabbit excursion.
