Hey there honey, did you know that there’s more to honey than its sweet taste, and delicate consistency? It is a superfood with an abundance of health promoting properties.
Now listen, I’m not talking about Billy Bee Honey, or any other pasteurized & processed honeys. I’m talking about the real thing: raw, natural, honey.
Raw honey is in its most natural form and is actually considered “living”. Conventional honeys are usually pasteurized which means cooked at high temperatures to rid bacteria, and produce a uniform consistency. Unfortunately, heating honey at high heat destroys enzymes, vitamins, and minerals responsible for health promoting benefits.
Why i ♡ honey:
- anti bacterial
- anti viral (hence why you consume it when feeling sick)
- anti fungal
- high in antioxidants
- provides the body with friendly bacteria
- fuels the liver
- natural cough suppressant
- boosts immunity
Not all sweeteners are created equally so definitely opt for a natural sweetener like honey when you can. Use it in: tea, smoothies, salad dressings, chicken/fish marinades, baked goods, oatmeal, granola, beverages, etc.
Honey should be a staple in every cupboard, so the next time you are at the grocery store purchase it raw.
p.s fun fact: honey does not expire!
