Erin from Busy Bees NJ

I’m a bit of a health nut. I try to eat well and exercise daily. And I take vitamins and other?things. Things like chia seeds, fennel?and flaxseed oil,?just to name a few. Now, thanks to Erin and Busy Bees NJ, I’ve added bee pollen to my things list (which is slowly approaching?Jack LaLanne-sized?proportions — if you don’t get that reference, ask your parents).

Just a teaspoon of bee pollen in my protein shake each morning does the job. Sometimes I’ll add a bit?to Greek yogurt as an after-dinner snack. Bee pollen can also be added to oatmeal, salads, and smoothies. Just use your imagination!

?A Few Benefits of Bee Pollen

  • Natural energy enhancer.
  • High in antioxidants and may have an anti-inflammatory effect on the tissues of the lungs (which in turn can reduce the risk of cancer).
  • Reduces the presence of histamine in the body, which helps alleviate allergies.
  • Probiotic. Bee pollen contains enzymes that aid in digestion and help extract the nutrients from the food you eat.

If you’re going to eat honey, eat honey, honey!

I don’t usually do sweets, unless we are talking Greek yogurt. I’ve also been known to occasionally go Berserker for dark chocolate (Oh the shame!). So honey isn’t usually high on my things list. Nevertheless it’s on many your things lists, and for good reason. It’s the perfect substitute for processed cane sugar, and comes with a long list of health benefits:

To all of you who already use honey, my question is this: Are you buying your honey off the supermarket shelves? If so, you might be interested in this article:

Tests Show Most Store Honey Isn’t Honey

Read it, then go buy your honey from Erin at Busy Bees NJ at the Wildwood NJ Downtown Farmer’s Market. She’s way more friendly that the automated computer checkout screen?and very knowledgeable on all things bees. I’m glad I visited her booth, even if?I?did end up increasing my things list.
