Honey Do’s & Honey Don’t

A staple that I can’t live without is honey.  In my past life I used to consume those yucky artificial sweeteners which do even more yucky things to your body (they actually promote weight gain rather than weight loss). Now it’s all about honey, well, in moderation, of course.

Did you know that honey doesn’t have to be pasteurised? Actually it’s better if it’s not because pasteurisation kills all the nutrients and live enzymes and slows down the crystallisation process. But yet again, we consumers have been brainwashed by marketers to think that honey can only be clear and runny. ‘Tis not so my friends.

Do yourself a favour, find a local honey supplier or at least make sure the honey you buy is “unpasteurised” or “raw”.  That way if you’re going to indulge in some sweet let it do double duty and let it give you an extra bang for your buck.

  1. Nice write up. I’m studying something similar here at UCLA. It’s really stimulating to discover content from other people and see
    a little bit from their source. If it’s okay, I’d seriously appreciate
    it if I could use some of the articles on your blog. And of course, I’ll put up a backlink to your site at thegoodsisgood.com on my own page. Kudos for posting.
