Adding a spoonful of honey to my porridge this morning, I found myself thinking about how much good it was doing to me! I love honey- I absolutely believe that it is one of the most perfect food sources with so many uses!
Many years ago when I was a youngster starting out in work, I had to do some research on honey for some reason. The things I learned about the it’s benefits have stayed with me ever since.
Did you know that if you take a spoonful of honey in the morning it will help you to wake up and a spoonful at night will help you to sleep?
