WELCOME TO BEE SCHOOL
bees are insects who play a large role in the balance of our ecosystem. It has often been said that bees are responsible for 1 out of every 3 bites of food we eat. These tiny bees work diligently, and we dig diligence.
pollination is the first and most important part of bees to the ecosystem. Bees are selective about the pollen that they collect from flowers to take back to their hive. This pollen is used by them as a protein and the nectar is taken into use for energy!
Protein + Energy = Balanced Bee!
bee pollen rejuvenates your body! Consumption stimulates organs and glands and is an excellent source high in protein (40%). Bee pollen’s ability to consistently increase energy levels makes it a favorite choice among many athletes and those interested in sustaining and enhancing quality performance. This buzzer contains nearly all of the known nutrients necessary for human survival! We are all about human survival!
raw honey is obtained by beekeepers without heating the honey above 120°F. we love heat, but the MIAMI kind ☺ Raw honey promotes digestive health and is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune systems, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and infections! Raw honey can also calm nerves, stabilize blood pressure, and balance sugar levels.
propolis or “bee glue” contains as many as 300 active compounds, rich in vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidant phytonutrients and flavonoids. Bees make propolis by gathering resin from pine and other cone-producing evergreen trees used to seal holes in the hive for protection from mice, snakes, and lizards, OH MY! Sort of playing an architectural duty to the hive, the name propolis comes from the Greek meaning “defense of the city.”
royal jelly is reserved for consumption only by the QUEEN BEE! However, since bees are such good workers, a single colony can store up to 500 grams of royal jelly over a 5-6month period. A queen couldn’t possibly consume that much, which is why a market developed for this nutrient supplement.
But what if I am allergic to bees? It is always best to consult with your Dr. to discuss supplements of any form, but allergic reactions come from is the bee venom. Products such as bee pollen, propolis, honey, and royal jelly do not carry the venom and are utilized in very small amounts!
Humans depend on bees to fertilize the plants and make them a food source. Without bees, we would have reduced food sources.
plants are one of the two groups into which all living things were traditionally divided; the other is animals.
protein is made up of building blocks called amino acids, nine of which can’t be synthesized by our bodies, so we have to get them from food.
While there are an abundance of plant protein options available, let’s start here… MOTHER. NATURE.
Listed below are just a few of the plant proteins we have carefully selected and will find throughout our menu!
spirulina. A blue-green algae, spirulina is a highly bioavailable complete protein containing all essential amino acids. At 60% protein (the highest of any natural food), it’s a plant-based protein powerhouse that landed a top spot in some of our BEE BLENDS.
hemp seeds are another bioavailable complete protein rivaled only by spirulina! With a perfect ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 EFA’s (essential fatty acids), hemp seeds are a simple and great addition to our BEE BLENDS!
maca derives from a plant indigenous to the high Andes of Peru and has proven highly effective in combating anemia and chronic fatigue while promoting adrenal functionality. We were drawn to maca as it is a known natural mood enhancer! BEE HAPPY!
chia seeds AKA the “ultimate runner’s food”. This non-GMO complete protein is high in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, phytonutrients and antioxidants. Chia has been shown to promote heart health, boost endurance, increase oxygen uptake and impede dehydration.
almonds are a joy. We aren’t talking about the candy bar kind of almond joy. We are talking about the kind of joy from an almond that pound for pound, contains more protein than a sirloin steak.
milk does a body good, it is true. However, we started to question the different types of milk available…and then things got pretty intense! SO we decided to steer clear of the milk AISLE at the local grocery store and set out to make our own. Creamy. Dreamy. Delicious. The flavor from our fresh made milks far exceeds those at the grocery, which contain additives and sugars to extend their shelf life.
