Sugar v Honey

Postby Butterfly_Dawn » Thu Nov 17, 2005 8:52 pm

ok, so you're making your breakfast and you know you shouldn't put sugar on your weetbix....is honey any better?

I use honey on my brekkie and also in some hot drinks (i.e my 'fake' coffee). I find it sweeter than sugar, so i end up using less of it; it complements creamier drinks and dishes (but i can't come at honey in tea); and I also know it has many beneficial properties and can even be used as a wound dressing for its antibacterial properties ( :!: ).

What does everyone else think?
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

They both contain the same amount of calories, but honey has more nutrition especially Tasmanian honey, redgum honey, whitegum honey, actually australian honey in general is superior. It is also beneficial for healing respitory disease.

My mum sends pots of australian Tasmanian honey to her sisters in Germany as gifts. They say the taste is incredible.

When I feel like something sweet I use a natural sweetner called Xylitol, it tastes much nicer than Stevia. :D

Fay, thanks for the tip about the Xylitol (I never did like Stevia)
Your tips are so good. My family have now gotten use to having Herbamare' (that you told us about, I finally found it in the health food store) and they actualy prefer using it to salt at the dinner table.

Your welcome Dolly and I get my Herbamare at Woolies or Coles, it's a little cheaper than the health food Store. :D

re the honey as a healing balm for wounds...TRUE...I have worked in nursing homes where honey is used on residents with wounds, instead of using mega-buck costing wound-dressing materials, with *excellent* results.
