Fabulous Friday: Honey

Ahhh, take a deep breath: It’s May! Oh, feeling a little congested, stuffy, or sneezy? Shoot.

Well, one of the greatest things that you can do if you have allergies is to consume a little bit of honey every day—but make sure it is made by local bees, exposed to local pollens. You can add it to tea or oatmeal, or to your Master Cleanse drink or lemon water.

And to get the best results, consume raw rather than processed honey, because processing changes the composition of honey.

Live here in the Twin Cities? I have the BEST recommendation for you on honey. My dear friends Grace and Dustin run Bare Honey, where they raise honeybees that get exposed to local pollen—in fact, they make honey all throughout Twin Cities. On their website, you can even see all the locations—very cool!

I just think they have the best tasting, most high-quality honey.

Plus they’ve got a foodie bent, and produce multiple types—one of my favorites is the lavender blossom honey. It’s so good.

But they’ve also got linden blossom honey, wildflower honey, some sweet white clover blossom….they’ve got a hot honey, infused with smoked chiles. Vanilla-bean honey. I mean, if you ask me, a peanut-butter-and-vanilla-bean-honey sandwich is one of the world’s most perfect foods!

What’s truly amazing is that they also carry a pollen-fortified raw honey that contains pollens from spring, summer, and fall. This is just the perfect way to help remedy your seasonal allergies.

It’s completely chemical- and pesticide-free. Beyond organic.

Mouth watering yet? You can buy it online and find it at Kowalski’s, Whole Foods, Golden Fig Fine Foods, and The Bibelot Shops!
