Mel Mellis!

 

Hi there!

 

Some years ago I used to have a
nice big
house on the coast.
It had a very large beautiful garden,
full of
colourful shrubs, small
trees and lovely flowers.

During spring time all flowers
were in full
bloom and attracted
all kinds of life.

It was really a bliss to watch
all these insects
flying around
the wonderful blossoms and

suck the juices out of them.

Among these interesting insects
were lots
of honey bees.
I enjoyed gardening at the time,
and I was always
playing with
the plants.

A few times I was stung by the
bees around
the flowers, which
was very irritating.

Although bees are not aggressive
they will
sting if they feel threatened.

The Nectar

 

The bees harvest from various
plants, trees,
shrubs and flowers.
So we have many different
kinds of honey,
which varies in
colour, flavour and taste.

Honey is my vary favourite
sweetener
since I was a teenager.
I use it in all my hot drinks,
my cooking,
my baking and
on top of most of my
deserts
and yogurt.

The Advantages

 

Pure honey offers a lot of
health benefits.

Firstly, its natural sugars stabilize
our own
blood sugar levels and fight
insulin resistance.

Secondly, it promotes balanced
serotonin
levels, so we can feel
calmer and more relaxed.

Thirdly, it is a natural source of
energy due
to its many nutrients,
so we feel more active.

Finally, it is an immune system
enhancer,
an anti-oxidant, an
anti-fungal, an anti-bacterial

and a natural throat soother.

Make certain you buy only pure
honey
without additives.
