One of good things that I love to do is to consume honey. Honey comes from bees, small animals which will sting you if you disturb them. The reason of consuming honey is that: first it is exemplified by the Prophet Muhammad. He used to consume honey combined with glass of water or he directly ate it. The second reason is that, love sweet food and honey as a very pure taste that I cannot find in any processed food. Honey’s sweetness is so precise on my tongue that licking it has somewhat unimaginable sensation, it’s being exaggerated though. Honey, although it is sweet, not all people love honey. My wife (read: honey) doesn’t really like it so I have to little bit force her in order that she consumes it :). Honey has indeed abundance of benefits for our health, as well as for our intellectual quotient. We must then realize that this is needed for our health. Allah in the Quran says clearly states that honey can heal men from their sickness. Your Lord revealed to the bees: "Build dwellings in the mountains and the trees, and also in the structures which men erect. Then eat from every kind of fruit and travel the paths of your Lord, which have been made easy for you to follow." From inside them comes a drink of varying colors, containing healing for mankind. There is certainly a Sign in that for people who reflect. (Qur'an, An-Nahl : 69) The ways we consume honey can be in various ways. We can mix honey (two spoons) with half glass of water or we can eat it right away without any addition. If you like eating bread, you may pour honey on it as the replacement of milk. I’m definitely sure that honey is much better than milk and any kind of processed food out there. In a bottle, honey can last long and you may grab it for just 50 to a thousand rupiahs depending on the quality of honey. The good and genuine honey is really different from one is mixed. So you need to be quite careful when deciding to buy honey. I prefer to buy honey from neighbor of mine as he gets honey from forest, I am sure he doesn’t mix it with anything. Well, happy consuming honey so that you’ll be healthier. Thanks also to my “honey” who pretty much serves me a glass of honey :)
