Today’s topic is one that Winne the Pooh would approve of wholeheartedly.
Honey, specifically raw honey.
Having grown up with a special affinity to Winnie the Pooh (I think it was his rotund nature and love of food/honey that got me) it only makes sense that I have become a huge raw honey fan.
You will know from previous articles about natural sweeteners and the benefits of raw honey, that raw honey is pretty awesome. (Read this is you have yet to be introduced to the wonders of raw honey.)
But basically raw honey is when all the natural goodness is still there, the mineral, enzymes, the phytonutrients etc. It’s not be boiled off in the processing and is therefore, awesome for the body.
I love the stuff because it is so good for you body AND it has tons of uses, so investing in slightly pricier honey can pay off because you can use it for everything…well nearly. Some people don’t like how high in fructose honey is which I can understand but guys it hardly like your going to a jar of the stuff every day, I mean seriously I dare you to try!
I buy mine in bulk here but you can get it in smaller amounts too.
