Honey is a sweet food, made by honeybees using flower nectar.
We use honey every day in our house, it’s a great alternative to using sugar. It has been linked to health benefits such as improving heart health, wound healing, source of antioxidants, help digestive issues and soothing a sore throat.
However honey is still a form of sugar and should be used in moderation.
Over the years I’ve learned that when you buy honey from the store(non-raw and pasteurized), then it’s been heated and lost all those beneficial nutrients.
That’s why I always buy local raw honey! I want all those beneficial nutrients and a good healthy clean alternative to sugar. We also consume local raw honey in the Spring, which has been reported to lessen symptoms of seasonal allergies.
