Honey. It’s been one of my closest friends the past few weeks. I got sick with a raging respiratory virus before Thanksgiving (I had to have a steroid shot before my Thanksgiving TV appearance and an IV afterward, yeah, that sick). I took steroids for so many days that my immune system was compromised. Once I finally started to feel better every sick person in the universe decided to cough on me, so now I’m sick again. It’s been an exhausting 6 weeks. PSA: I don’t even care if I sound preachy – if you’re sick, stay at home. If you’re sick, wash your hands. If you’re sick, please, please, care enough about others (besides yourself) to not spread your germs – and stay. away. from. me…….I digress. Moving on.
My favorite way to eat honey (other than straight from the jar) is to mix a heaping spoonful in a mug of hot tea. It is soothing, almost like a hug from mom. I like honey because it isn’t overly sweet, it is a gentle sweet – a reminder of sugar but only a hint, not a sugary wallop.
