im no one to judge anyone’s food choices but i find it kind of silly when vegan people choose to omit honey from their diet? because
- it’s actually really healthy for you
- bees over produce honey anyway, so if it’s not used then it goes to waste. and they make it all the time, so it’s not like cows who have to be continually bred to produce milk
- beekeepers take great care of their hives and have to keep their bees healthy. harvesting honey causes absolutely zero harm to the bees and their hive.
- healthy and plentiful bees lead to better pollination and healthier plants
so by supporting a local beekeeper, you’re actively supporting your local ecosystem. especially if you have a garden, buying honey directly helps you and your neighbors. and you also get something that is delicious, healthy, and sustainable.
