Honey Up Your Meals With These Recipes

Bees are amazing creatures in our world that have many duties. Their most prominent duty, pollination, results in a great sweetener for humans to eat, honey. It is the healthy and natural alternative to refined sugar, raw sweeteners, or sugar substitutes. It can also be used as a home remedy for allergies, as consuming pollen from your local environment can assist in spring time sinus changes. Honey and its sweet nature, including a gentle taste and texture, has also been said to help cure morning sickness, arthritis, upset stomach, bladder infections, bad breath, and grumpy attitudes. 

Serve to anyone who needs a little pick-me-up. You just might get a sweet response. 

Nutritionally, honey is the sweetener your body can most likely process the easiest. Use a tablespoon here and there by following these simple recipes.
