Well, today is the start of the Jewish New Year…so to all of my fellow Jews:  “HAPPY NEW YEAR!”

Traditionally Jewish people eat apples and honey today to celebrate the beginning of a sweet new year…so in honor of that tradition, let’s see what else we can do with this sweet treat:

Here’s a good way to start…new year celebration leaving you a bit hung over?  Spoon a few tablespoons of honey on toast to help the healing.

Honey is a great mender and soother, so if you find yourself with a minor cut or scrape, apply a few drops of honey twice daily to help speed up the healing process.  Honey is also amazing for soothing a sore throat.  Take 2 teaspoons straight or mix it into tea.  Yum!

Help your skin glow this winter by rubbing down with ¼ cup honey, ¾ cup raw sugar, and ¼ cup olive oil.  Rub into wet skin and rinse off.

The health benefits of honey are skyrocketing, so drizzle some on your fruit, bread, and banana bread (this is delicious, by the way!) and reap the reward.

Honey has also been proven to help with ulcers, diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach upsets.  Doctors are also realizing the benefits of honey to the cardiovascular system, respiratory organs, and your nerves.  Sounds like Winnie the Pooh had it right this whole time 😉
