Eco-Rico Brings Latin Flavor to Green Living: Founder Giselle Achecar Creates EcoSexy Recipes to Spice Up Your Romance for Valentine's Day

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 25, 2011) - In time for Valentine's Day, Giselle Achecar, founder of the new and EcoRico TV, provides three aphrodisiac-rich, organic recipes designed to rev up your love life. The Puerto Rican-born and Ivy-league educated Achecar is passionate about delicious, nutritious earth-friendly food: on EcoRico TV she hosts a cooking show, creating healthy island-inspired recipes using organic, Fair Trade ingredients. The Eco-Rico company mission is to educate and entertain people about the benefits of leading an eco-friendly life with Latin flair.

For a steamy Valentine's Day, indulge in Achecar's eco-licious, nutrient-rich three-course menu. Start with the Six Aphrodisiac Salad made with arugula, avocado, red pepper and toasted pine nuts topped with a honey, lemon, garlic dressing. Loaded with chlorophyll, arugula cleanses and energizes the blood, bringing oxygen to the body, including the sex organs. Known to Native Americans as the Viagra of their day, pine nuts are a zinc powerhouse and testosterone booster.

Shrimp that is hand-fed to your lover makes a great main dish, especially when marinated in Eco-Rico's delicious "adobo" seasoning, oranges and lemon juice. Achecar recommends buying domestic instead of imported shrimp, as imported shrimp are washed and frozen with STPP, a known neurotoxin and sure-fire romance killer.

Achecar's chocolate pudding makes for a sensual dessert. With over 300 identifiable chemical compounds, cacao is one of the most complex and satisfying foods on earth. However, to reap its sexual health benefits, eat dark chocolate with over 70% cacao. Achecar's recipe uses delicious dark chocolate and coconut flesh for a luscious pudding, which she pairs with tropical fruits.
