Honey is a food item that is known for its sweet goodness. Americans typically consume about 1.5 pounds of honey annually. Honey can be used in many ways, as a yummy snack, as a marinade for meats or veggies, and as we all know it’s a great substitute for sugar.
A great morning snack can include a slice of your 40 calorie bread, 1 tablespoon of Philadelphia’s Reduced Fat Cream Cheese, and 1 teaspoon of honey. This can be a great breakfast treat alongside some eggs and veggies.
The most famous use of honey is in tea. Continue to add a dollop of honey in your tea, it’s a whole lot better than sugar! Add a dollop of honey over a fruit salad to enhance the sugars in the fruit. Be mindful of the types of fruit chosen and the amount of sugar both will be together.
If you’re looking for a different flavor profile, add some honey and spices to your chicken and let it marinade to gain some extra sweetness. Throw it on top of some veggies and you have yourself a delicious dinner.
Secret: 1 tablespoon of honey can be used as an incidental in your daily dietary regimen. 1 tablespoon is 43 calories, and has 0g of fat, but has 12g of sugar.
