Food of the Day: Honey

Honey is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Honey helps stomach ulcers, is good for high blood pressure, and constipation. Honey is one of the hidden gems of the world and in recent days has taken the backseat to agave, due to its higher glycemic index rating. However, honey is a natural medicine in its raw form and is much less processed than agave.

Honey Facts:

  1. Great for Hangovers- honey stimulates the oxidation of alcohol by the liver which speeds up cleansing
  2. A great simple carb to consume right after your workout to replenish your ATP stores
  3. Is best eaten raw, which allows you to benefit from all the enzymes and nutrients

I put raw killer-bee honey in my baking recipes or smoothies and on my morning cereal and yogurt.
