If you do not have allergies, honey is just a storehouse of usefulness. Two tablespoons a day are enough, and you are not afraid of illness: honey has bactericidal properties, stimulates the immune system, and reduces inflammation.

Add honey to cold sauces and salad dressings, eat with a spoon, stir with warm (not hot) drinks.
