5 Ways to incorporate honey into your breakfast meals
You have heard it numerous times: breakfast is the most important meal of the day! So, you might want to put a little effort and make it right–right? If you have a sweet tooth — like me — and want to start your day with something sweet, you need to add these recipes to your routine immediately.
The secret to each of these gems is honey. Honey is a delicious and a healthier way to sweeten foods. Peter Molan, the Director of Honey Research unit at the University of Toronto, tells us that honey is proven to have antibacterial properties. A study of 139 children concludes that honey is more effective in easing nighttime coughs and improving sleep. But, enough with the scientific facts and let’s get down to business!
