Have you ever wanted an option for honey that didn't come from bees, but still tasted the same as the real deal???
Welp, if you have, then you're in luck because What's Amy Eating host/foodie, Amy Castle just introduced us to Bee Free Honee, which is made from apples and was accidentally created by chef, Katie Sanchez when she was just trying to make apple jelly.
Humans have been hunting for honey for at least 8,000 years as depicted by cave paintings in Valencia, Spain. Here, on rock etchings, two hunters are shown collecting honey from a honeycomb in a wild bee nest. In ancient Egypt, honey was not only used as a pastry sweetener, but also for embalming the dead and for offerings to, Min, the fertility god of Egyptians.
Fast forward to today. Is Honey really that good for your honey? Of course it is! Following are just a few of the many health benefits reported in the literature for this busy bee’s, natural sweetener:
Get creative about adding nutrition. Cooking eggs? Add greens like kale or spinach. Eating toast? get some extra protein by adding almond butter. Stay away from foods that offer little protein but are high in saturated fats, and avoid processed foods as much as you can.
Chia pudding is a great cereal alternative. Soak chia seeds in water with a little almond milk over night then add berries and honey for a healthy sweet breakfast. The best way to eat food is to accept it as Mother Nature offers it…natural and whole.
