Reach Your 2016 Goals with Georgia Honey Farm’s Honey

Whether your goal is to lose that holiday weight or to pursue a healthier lifestyle or even to save a little money so that you can finally pay off your debt, Georgia Honey Farms can help you with your 2016 new year’s resolution list.

You don’t have to swear off sweets completely in order to shed a few pounds or live a healthier lifestyle. Instead, consider turning to honey as a natural, unprocessed sugar-substitute in all your favorite recipes. Honey is absorbed into the body differently than sugar, so it can actually aid in digestion. Additionally, honey contains vitamins and minerals making it an easy choice over sugar and artificial, no-calorie sweeteners.

By making healthier versions of your favorite baked goods, jams and jellies, salad dressings, marinades, and drinks, you can start shedding those pounds for a healthier 2016. For tips and conversion measurements, check out our blog post here.

Is one of your resolutions to stop wasting money on spoiled food? Honey is budget-friendly because it never goes bad. Yes, you’re reading that right; honey doesn’t go bad. Additionally, because honey is sweeter than sugar, you need less of it when you use it as a substitute, further saving you money.

You can also save money by using honey in place of expensive drugstore items. Honey’s antibacterial and antiseptic properties similar to that of hydrogen peroxide allow it to be used as an ingredient in wound gels and dressings. This helps with minor burns, cuts, and scrapes. Research even suggests that honey can destroy bacteria before it is able to penetrate an open wound. It also aids in removing pus, scabs, and dead tissue from wounds while simultaneously stimulating new growth. When used alone or in tea with lemon juice, the anti-inflammatory function of honey helps sooth a sore throat or cough by fighting infections in the upper airways.

Are you looking to get back into the gym this year? Honey can help you with that resolution, too. Many athletes have found honey to be an effective replacement for carbohydrates prior to exercise, because it provides instant energy without the insulin surge of table sugar. You could also add it to water during exercise to help keep your muscles well nourished and functioning optimally. For your post-workout needs, honey can be used as a carbohydrate source for glycogen restoration and blood sugar control.

No matter what your 2016 resolution may be, you can achieve it with high-quality honey from Georgia Honey Farms. Happy New Year!
