whole_foods_1_013_0011-15 Protect the Bees with Whole Foods  A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to learn about bees and the affect on our food with Whole Foods share the buzz.   I know that you have heard that honey bees are not doing well,  that they are threaten by the environment and pesticides.   Yes they are but do you know that you can help them recover.

Easy ways to help the bees:

  • Think about when you use pesticide on your lawn.   If you have seen bees or butterflies it might because you and your neighbors are using too much pesticide.  Holding off on using these chemical
  • Plant Flowers, mikweed, fruits, and vegetables.
  • Corn that are gmo’s can affect the bees so even if you neighbors garden
  • Healthy soil= healthy food = healthy humans

Without the pollinators in our world many of the foods on our salad would not be available.  Check out this Whole Foods article

I loved learning about the how the pollinators and how they affect our food.   Plus adding the rewards of bees honey to our food is so delicious.

Cheese and honey are amazing. cheese and honey

Whole food offers local honey from bee keepers in your area.  Some people take a teaspoon local honey everyday to help with there pollen allergies.   I am loving this honey right now and my husband is taking the honey to help with his seasonal allergies.

I have to say one of my favorite things I tried was the Borsari which is $6.00 at my local whole foods.  I love this spice it has pollinators in it, a little lavender, salt, and other spices.  It is strong but a family favorite, I have been using on salads, meats, fish.   I love it on a tomato sandwich.
