    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.
    Find me at aToadontheRoad.com. Cheers!

    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.
