We have a lot of conversations about honey for nausea, which is that it can help with some stomach issues, or that it masks the taste of food. What I think is more likely is that it actually reduces the amount of food that you start with. So for me, it’s not that important to use honey to mask the taste of food. What is important is that you use it to wash raw foods down.
I was thinking that you were supposed to use honey to wash raw foods down. The point of honey is to soak up liquid, but once you remove the honey, you lose that soak-up capacity. So you want to use an agent that will help you use the liquid capacity of the honey without removing it.
I’ve been using kief or bee pollen before for this. It does a good job of removing the liquid from raw foods without destroying the honey. I use honey for most cooked foods. I use bee pollen for raw foods.
Its best known use is for making food flavorings. A popular flavor in the kitchen is called “vinegar.” Vinegar is a solution made by mixing warm water, vinegar, and sugar. You start with the water, add your ingredients, and stir the mixture with a whisk. You pour it into a glass or bottle, and the sweet liquid will turn a yellow color. It can also be used to make flavorings, such as a mustard flavor.
I love vinegar for the many reasons I mentioned above, plus it’s cheap and easy to make. But you can make vinegar out of anything that can be heated, including honey. Some recipes call for a whole bunch of honey to be boiled in water, and the resulting liquid is then strained to get the honey. But if you happen to have some honey leftover, simply throw it in the microwave and it will turn into vinegar. Honey can also be used as a substitute for sugar in baked goods.
I’ve never had a problem with honey before, but it’s not a good idea to make it into a sauce. It has a higher glycemic load and makes you feel fuller sooner, plus it can be quite fattening.
Honey is a natural in the body. Honey acts as a powerful chemical that triggers all kinds of havoc. The amount of sugar you add to a sauce is like how much you need to go to the bathroom for you to poop. Ive also had a hard time swallowing any of the many foods you use to make a sauce like this. I’ve also been using this for years and just couldn’t bring myself to drink it.
The biggest problem with honey is that it’s very sweet. It can trigger all kinds of funny reactions in the body. Like, you may feel lightheaded when you first eat it, but then you actually feel sick, and you feel like you need to vomit. It’s also very acidic and has a high glycemic load, which is why it makes you feel full sooner.
I don’t know if it’s a real problem, but we’ve all been there. The other day we were eating a bowl of this and we were so full it hurt. We were nauseous, and we couldn’t stop eating it.
It does happen to me sometimes. I think it has to do with the sweet aftertaste. We should be careful with honey, though. It can cause yeast infections and it can have a serious impact on your colon.
