Why You Should Consider A Spoonful Of Honey

Easily digestible carbs–straight from nature.

The work of bees can help you make the most out of your workout. With 60 calories and 17 grams of carbohydrates per tablespoon, honey is a great topper for a pre-run snack to boost energy. The sweet stuff has also been shown to improve memory, help allergies and even prevent acid reflux. Bee experts estimate 60,000 bees travel 55,000 miles to 2 million flowers to make 1 pound of honey—something to ponder during your next run.
