Bee Aware Month – 21 Amazing Facts about Bees & Honey

As you might already know, honey bees are under threat worldwide due to parasites, disease, climate change, air pollution, and pesticides. This news has us wondering… what we can do to help the bees?According to Albert Einstein, “If Bees disappeared off the face of the earth, Man would have only four years to live.” If like us, you want to help our buzzy friends survive, you can start by boycotting products containing neonicotinoids, buying local honey, and planting bee-friendly flowers in your garden. Having your own hive can also help – and that’s because unlike some commercial techniques, natural beekeeping actually supports bee health, prioritising pollination and natural reproduction over honey yields.September is Bee Aware Month in New Zealand – making this a great time for [...]

Chocolate Protein Mousse Cups

Our friend Liz @whysohealthy did her own take on our triple-nut chocolate cake and created these little protein snacks with our coconut yoghurt. You can make them too by substituting 2 tbsp of cacao instead of the 1 tbsp of chocolate sauce in the mousse layer, and use The Honest Food Co’s primal protein mixed with melted coconut oil for the base. Liz has her own Instagram blog where she shares the science behind our healthy food choices. This time she’s featured our coconut yoghurt. Take it away Liz! Coconut yoghurt, whysohealthy? The first obvious benefit to coconut yoghurt is that its dairy free, and whilst almond milk is a great milk substitute, there isn’t really anything else in [...]
