    I'd go really easy on it because it may be "natural" but it is still a highly concentrated, refined sugar. It's just refined by bees instead of humans. I put it in the category of dried fruit - something I eat a little of a couple times a month, usually to sweeten some homemade, primal marzipan or muffins.

      Use it in recipes. Add a "touch" to other foods if you wish. It is pure sugar and has a small amount of nutrients.

        I was watching a tv series on traditional cultures. Two tribes they followed went to great risk to secure honey and ate it in big handfuls, but only 3 or 4 times a year. It was a big treat because it was hard to get. My take from that is, have some, once in while rather than every day.

              Mark does have a post on natural sweeteners (honey included.) My break is over so I don't have time to search for it.

              Anybody got a minute to find it?

                  I have an occasional teaspoon or half a teaspoon of raw honey, up to maybe once/day. It helps with my allergies, and raw honey has some good nutrients. I don't use any other sweeteners, e.g., sugar in my coffee, though.

                    I use this recipe subbing a little honey in place of the agave:

                    Anja's Food 4 Thought: Almond Coconut Balls (Aka Healthy Marzipan)

                    Basically, equal parts almond meal and unsweetened coconut ground together with enough honey to stick it all together. Then roll it in some cocoa powder or coconut.

                      raw honey is better than non-raw honey, imo; i use it in recipes (sparingly) and medicinals (honey/lemon/ginger tea).

                        Honey was a rare treat because of the involvement in collecting it from the wild.

                        I use it sparingly especially since we are supposed to be watching our carb intake - one tablespoon has over 17 grams of carbohydrates in it.

                        prior to going primal I used to just gorge myself on the stuff - honeyed berries are awesome

                          Raw, local honey is the best way to go--it helps with allergies and has natural antimicrobial qualities. But yeah, I use a tiny bit in cooking now and then, otherwise it's just for when I'm sick. I love homemade ginger and lemon tea with honey zoebird! Works like a charm.

                            thanks. Sounds like a good cheat day splurge

                              I think honey is nature's best sweetener. Yes, it is still a sugar and must be kept in moderation, but it works great in recipes and for a treat by itself.
