Real Food. Real People.

At Great Harvest in Austin we make our breads fresh daily with natural ingredients, including honey. We love the delicious sweetness it provides our bread. We also love it for its versatility. Are you aware that you can use honey not only on your food, in your tea, and smoothies, but even directly on your skin? It's true. We cannot get over how great honey is. It's for this purpose that we've decided to write this blog, providing you with our top five favorite reasons for advocating honey.

If you've been feeling under the weather, make sure that you take into consideration how honey helps build our immune systems! It is full of antioxidants, which will help to fight off sickness.

Honey will also help to soothe your sore throat, as well as heal it. Honey's smoothness is great for making your throat feel better, while at the same time its antibacterial properties will even help in the healing process.

While on the subject of honey's health properties, it also serves as a great way to eliminate or decrease indigestion. If you are going to have a meal that you think will cause indigestion, or perhaps you already had the meal, prepare yourself a nice tea with honey to drink. This may also be a great way to help you take strong antibiotics that cause indigestion, with a spoonful of honey.

Lastly, while you're taking care of yourself, you should know that honey is a great way to build energy before a workout. Carbohydrates are great for building energy, and it so happens that honey is packed with carbohydrates that you'll need to persevere in your workout routine.

Honey is also fantastic on toast, but for a few further ideas be sure to read our list of the best toast toppings.
