We're Sweet On Honey

We're Sweet On Honey

As the cooler weather really sets in, it's essential to protect our bodies against seasonal illnesses and boost our overall well-being. While there are many remedies and supplements available, one natural wholefood that shines through for its health benefits is raw native honey. Bursting with unique flavors and therapeutic properties, raw native honey can become your go-to ingredient for a nourishing winter diet. We're absolutely sweet on honey at winter time, and can't wait to share the buzz with you! 

Raw native honey, sourced from local bees that have collected pollen from their surrounding flora, offers a treasure trove of health-boosting properties. Unlike processed honey, raw native honey is not heated or filtered, allowing it to retain its natural enzymes, antioxidants, and nutrients. Here are some of the remarkable benefits it brings to the table:

  1. Immune System Support: Raw native honey is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that support a healthy immune system. Its antibacterial properties can help fend off winter ailments like colds, coughs, and sore throats.

  2. Soothing Properties: The viscous nature of raw native honey provides a coating effect, soothing irritation and promoting relief from coughs and scratchy throats. It acts as a natural cough suppressant, making it an excellent alternative to over-the-counter remedies.

  3. Nutritional Powerhouse: Raw native honey contains essential vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, including vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and iron. Incorporating it into your winter diet adds a natural, wholesome touch to your daily nutrition.

  4. Allergy Alleviation: Consuming raw native honey produced in your local area can help alleviate seasonal allergies. The honey contains trace amounts of local pollen, which may help your body build a tolerance to allergens.

Ways to add Raw Native Honey into your winter diet: 

  1. Warm Lemon Honey Water: Start your day with a comforting cup of warm water infused with fresh lemon juice and a tablespoon of raw native honey. This concoction aids digestion, boosts hydration, and provides a gentle detoxifying effect.

  2. Honey-Infused Herbal Teas: Enhance the flavor and health benefits of herbal teas like chamomile, peppermint or chai by adding a drizzle of raw native honey. Or try it in a turmeric latte. Not only will it sweeten the brew, but it will also amplify the soothing properties of the tea.

  3. Honey-Glazed Roasted Vegetables: Transform your winter vegetables into a mouthwatering side dish by drizzling them with a mixture of raw native honey, olive oil, and a pinch of sea salt. Roast until caramelized, and enjoy the delectable blend of flavors. Or check out our Chilli Honey recipe.
