Oh, the things you can do with honey!

I try desperately to stay away from refined sugar. I’m not always successful. Not by a long shot. Just ask my co-worker who’s candy jar I pillage on a regular basis. But when I’m at home, where we don’t have refined sugar at all, I leave it to honey or agave to sweet my tea or baked goods, which we don’t eat all that often either. The baked goods, that is, not the tea. I LOVE tea.

Anyway, I recently came across this interesting article on all of the amazing uses for honey on lifehackery.com, which is a wonderful, informative site. I recently managed to talk the manfriend into using honey instead of Neosporin on a nasty cut and it worked great! I’ve also used honey to soothe a sore throat and it seems to give a nice, sweet coating to a tender throat. But to know that ingesting helps the immune system, the digestive track, anxiousness and stress, energy levels, and blood flow while preventing parasites, cancer, and heart disease makes me feel even less guilty about using it.

Heck, maybe we should start an apiary in the backyard! Throw in the chickens we’ve been contemplating, the unintentional new pet, the intentional new pet (pending), a large garden, various other wildlife and it’ll be a regular zoo/farm back there. Ah, hippidom here we come!

  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
