Mindful Food-Be Mindful Hunnie
Bee-Mindful Hunnie (made from apples, not bees)
There is a common misconception that honey bees make their honey especially for us, but this couldn’t be further from the truth!!
Honey is made by bees for bees, and their health is sacrificed when it is harvested by humans in commercial facilities.
Honey is their energy source; without it they would starve. The honey bee (the bee used in commercial production) visits up to 1500 flowers in order to collect enough nectar to fill its ‘honey stomach’ and produces just a twelfth of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime!
When commercial farmers remove their honey, they replace it with a sugar substitute which lacks the essential micronutrients of honey and therefore significantly worsens the bees health. In addition, Queen bees often have their wings clipped by beekeepers to prevent them from leaving the hive to produce a new colony elsewhere, which would decrease productivity and lessen profit.
Do you need any other reason to try an equally delicious alternative that didn’t cause harm to this special species?!

Canadian Apples, Verified Vegan Sugar - yes, some sugar is not vegan because of how it's processed!
