Honey is high in sugar, so if consuming less sugar overall is the goal, it won’t help with that. However, it’s also loaded with nutrients like antioxidants and may even help increase good cholesterol levels and boost metabolism – particularly in diabetics. Those who are diabetics should, of course, speak to their doctor about how much honey they can safely consume. While it’s of course good in beverages like hot and cold tea, it can also provide a little sweetness to healthy desserts. Consider drizzling just a little honey over orange slices, along with coconut flakes, for a light and satisfying treat.
