I Love Honey Day comes at the perfect time for me. I’ve caught a nasty cold (flu? Let’s hope not) and I have a sore throat and my stomach is really queasy. So I’ve been drinking a lot of tea and eating a lot of boring toast.
Of course, I always add lots of honey to my tea, and today I got bored of plain toasted bagels and decided to add some honey on top of the butter. Ooooh, fancy.
We definitely love honey in this house. Look at all of the honey stuff!
Usually, we have local honey from a nearby farm, or from this lady my mom knows, whose husband happens to be a bee keeper. There’s no real scientific evidence that proves that local honey can prevent seasonal allergies, but it works pretty well for me.
I used to have terrible hayfever at the end of May and into June as the world suddenly grew very green and flowery. One year, I didn’t have this snotty attack. I couldn’t figure out why, but I wasn’t going to reject the gift of free-breathing. Then I realized that since that fall, I had been consuming lots of honey from a bee hive that was just 5 minutes away from my house. That was proof enough for me. Honey is also supposed to be good for your skin, throat, and hair.
Verdict? What’s not to love about honey? It tastes goods on its own or in your favorite tea or atop many foods, and it may have health benefits. Eat up!
