    As above, so do it if you prefer the taste, but there's not really any nutritional benefit

    I think that the real natural honey is better than sugar. Sugar is higher on the glycemic index raises blood sugar levels more quickly.
    But honey has slightly more calories than sugar

    honey will only be slightly lower on the GI index will it not?

    The major issue here is that bees don’t want humans to have their honey and we have no right to take it. No right I tell you! Humans and insects are equals!

    Honey is still sugar and should be kept to a minimum IMO but yes it is ‘better’ then sugar

    I started having real unpasteurised raw honey from a place called the local honey man online.
     
    I have never had honey before but this honey was really good. I was going to have it throughout summer. I was having a big desert spoon dollop in my morning oats. I was fine for about 2-3 weeks then I started to get mild stomach ache. I suspected it might have been the amount I was using. I didn't feel one spoon was that much though and if it meant having less I'd rather just not bother altogether. Probably a good thing I did stop having it altogether. If you have it I would only have it tiny amounts.
