You’ve heard of the benefits of Manuka honey, and that it’s totally OK to slather on skin. But what about eating it? Sure, you could drop a dollop into your tea...but are there other, more creative ways to reap the functional benefits of the golden goo? “The options are endless when it comes to adding Manuka honey to your day,” says Cara Clark, a certified nutritionist.
Clark’s worked with everyone from Olympic athletes and NBA stars to folks interested in weight loss, sports, prenatal and postpartum nutrition. And she happens to love Manuka honey for its health and wellness benefits. Her favorite brand: Comvita Manuka honey, which is non-GMO certified and the only Manuka honey that is gluten-free. It’s also sustainably sourced and certified UMF™ (aka the gold standard for origin, quality and potency of Manuka honey). Here, six of her favorite recipes to incorporate this wonderfood into your diet.
