7 Most Uses of Honey Tubes
Every kid has a sweet tooth, but considering how unhealthy white sugar is, they need an alternative to their daily craving. A child can easily drop a jar of honey, but a pocket sized ‘Honey on the go’ tube is the safe option that they’ll get used to the next time they feel like sweetening their breakfast cereal or sandwich. Along with being a healthier form of sugar, honey’s natural antibacterial properties helps their immune system fight the disease-causing viruses floating around in schools, playground and other open areas. Honey is the daily shot of immunity - and they won’t make a face while having this medicine!
There’s only one thing that keeps you awake at the office, and that’s your regular dose of tea. But instead of sugary tea that messes with your digestion, why not a lightly steeped detox or relax tea with a delicious dollop of honey. It’ll keep you feeling energised, instead of delivering the sudden energy jump and subsequent crash that white sugar is known for. Add it to a slice of bread and butter, and it becomes an instant snack that’s delicious and nutritious. Paired with a mug of steaming tea with honey, you’ve got the perfect boost to power through the day.
After GYM / Yoga
After a session of exercise or yoga, your body should not be exposed to the harsh energy spike that white sugar or sugary beverages generate. Honey, either by itself or in water, tea, or milk gives gently uplifts your energy levels and soothes your frayed nerves after a gruelling workout. Even if you feel like you’ll “crash” from exertion in the middle of your workout, just a glass of water with a spoon of honey is all the energy drink you’ll need to get your metabolism firing. Honey is cheap, available everywhere, and definitely healthier than any other energy drink.
Do you always need a sugary meal or drink after your lunch? Why not make it as healthy as possible? Ditch the soft drinks for something that will actually soothe your system and refresh you instantly - lemonade with honey! Honey helps in digestion, prevents indigestion and acid reflux, and a small honey tube can be carried with you, everywhere you go. You won't have to worry about the caffeine and high sugar content of colas or artificial juices ever again!
When you wake up and during breakfast
Honey and lemon first thing in the morning is sage advice to cleanse your system and give you an energetic start to the day. No one has the energy to walk to the kitchen, pick up a bulky honey jar, get water out, and mix, but anyone can reach for the honey tube conveniently placed on the bedside, squeeze the sweet golden liquid into a glass of water and chug it. It’s fast, easy, and gives you something to look forward to in the morning, instead of a bitter caffeinated drink to wake you up in the morning.
Replace it with Normal Sugar
White sugar is bad your teeth, does nothing for your immunity, delivers a ’crash’ to your energy levels, and hampers with your metabolism. Yet, we can’t get rid of sugar in our life, can we? Might as well make it healthy and safe - something only honey can deliver. While we can’t carry around a bottle of honey everywhere we go, a pocket-sized tube of honey can be thrown into your backpack, or purse anywhere you go. Cafes and restaurants won’t give you honey, but you’ll always have it on you.
With Green Tea
Fans of green tea know that that white sugar only ruins the taste of their favourite brew. On the other hand, honey is the perfect accompaniment - it yields a subtly sweet taste that doesn’t overpower the fragrance and taste of the steeped leaves. Honey’s natural antioxidants and antibacterial properties also complement the healthy benefits of green tea, making it a great addition. Honey already offers less sugar content than white sugar, and a few drops can sweeten your mug of green tea, giving it an invigorating flavour.
