Now is good a time to reflect on your eating habits and perhaps make some changes towards a healthier lifestyle. But with so many diets out there, it’s hard to know which one is best for you. While we are not experts on the subject, we did decide to explore one of this year’s most popular diets – The Mediterranean diet – and how honey is a perfect fit!
Picky eater in the house? A little swirl of honey added to nutrition-packed vegetables, like this Crispy Charred Tahini Cauliflower, can help—particularly with kids, whose taste buds tend to be more averse to some veggie flavors.
Fruits provide many important nutrients, like fiber, potassium, and vitamin C. Let honey help fancy up your fruit! Top off a colorful fruit salad, like our Citrus Fruit Salad with Honey Mint Lime Syrup, with a touch of honey to boost fruit’s natural sweetness.
Shake honey into dressing and fold it into whole-grain-based salads to add flavor. Honey’s sweet taste can help counter the bitterness of some varieties of whole grains. Try it out in our Honey Roasted Carrots and Quinoa Tabbouleh.
Good nutrition is essential for honey bees too! To help out the hard-working bees, plant a variety of bee-friendly flowers that bloom in all seasons, ensuring food year-round. Read more from Mic for best practices and other ways we can help our little friends!
