There are few things as soothing as a glass of warm milk. Add a spoonful of honey to make this drink even more comforting. If you’re sensitive to lactose, switch out traditional cow’s milk for a non-dairy substitute.

In Thai-inspired dipping sauces, honey serves as the perfect foil to the spiciness of the chiles. The sweet and the heat pair well with hearty fish such as swordfish or seabass. Try making your own sweet chile sauce to avoid the added sugars that come with the prepackaged brands.

Adding a tablespoon of honey to your tea is a great way to start your morning. Honey does much more than sweeten tea: Its antibacterial properties pair with the antioxidants and phytonutrients of the tea.  Some honey in your tea can even help you breathe easier.

Yogurt
