Honey and Exercise - Pioneer Thinking
I'm trying honey and lemon (without salt) for a workout drink today. Honey's GI isn't too bad, around 62.
I love honey. Good recipe to incorporate honey into your diet....Originally Posted by size
4 - Tablespoons (2 servings) of Smuckers Natural Peanut Butter
1 - Scoop Vanilla flavored protein powder.
1 - Tablespoon of honey
Mix all together, roll mix into balls, fridge overnight. Makes 2 servings at about 300 calories a serving.
I kid you not, tastes like the filling in Reese's Peanut Butter cups. Good protien, healthy carbs (honey) and a ton of healthy fat.
Sorry guys, I dont see honey as anything great. Sure it is a natural product and has some micronutrition but the bottom line is that it is a high calorie sweetener - I would only use it as a cheat.
Honey is a source of simple carbohydrates. Its composition on average, is 17.1 percent water, 82.4 percent total carbohydrate and 0.5 percent proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. The average carbohydrate content is mainly fructose (38.5 percent) and glucose (31percent). The remaining 12.9 percent of carbohydrates is made up of maltose, sucrose and other sugars.
It's approximately half glucose (dextrose) and half fructose. This looks alot like sucrose, which is one molecule of each, and it has GI comparable to sucrose as well. One could simply substitute table sugar and only give up a whopping .5 percent in micronutrition and a difference in taste.
I am the only one in my family who will eat honey. So it's a good thing the shelf life lasts forever!!Originally Posted by anabolicrhino
