About Organic Bee Pollen

Bee pollen is a near perfect food: it contains twenty two amino acids (so is a good source of protein), all the known vitamins, and twenty seven minerals, in particular the B vitamins, including the elusive B12.

The granules are gathered within the National Biosphere reserve of the Danube delta in Romania. The Danube delta is one of the richest and most diverse nature reserves in Europe and is home to more than 5,500 species of flora and fauna. The delta covers over 580,000 hectares and is made up of a complex system of channels, lakes, sandbanks and forests; it was designated a 'World Heritage Site' by UNESCO in 1990. The delta is a pristine, pollution free environment, which is essential for the quality of the bee pollen.

Bee Pollen can be eaten raw as a highly nutritious and healthy snack, or you can try sprinkling it on cereal, muesli, porridge, cereal or yoghurt, stirring it into warm drinks or blending it into smoothies and desserts. Most people use around a tablespoon a day. Bee Pollen is also claimed by many to be the best treatment for allergy relief, in particular, hay fever, if taken 6 weeks before the hay fever season starts. It works like a vaccine by introducing the body slowly to the irritant at low levels.

This product is great - in fact, a comparison of all the bee pollen stockists I could find online (including delivery costs) means that if you add this bee pollen to your basket and get it delivered free, it's the most cost effective out there per 100g!

But be aware. Bee pollen is not a 'near perfect food'. The levels of B12 are woefully low. There are also only 18 of the 22 amino acids. This is the only nutritional profile I could find online: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/fit44.htm  (if you find another one, please post below, I'd love to check it out).

Also, I'm not so sure this would help you with hayfever, since this pollen comes from Romania. Local pollen is a better bet. Realfoods would be a great place for local pollen producers to sell their fare (hint hint).

That said, I would still recommend it. I take it in the morning, on an empty stomach, 1 tablespoon, and it does make me buzz!

Valentine's Raw Vegan Chocolate Bark Recipe

Summary: Raw chocolate bark is simply a thin layer of raw chocolate covered with various toppings. Variations are endless. You could simply pour the still liquid raw chocolate onto a tray and break into chunks once set, or like I do here, use a silicon heart mould. In this case, the chocolate heart would be a real show stopper if served with tea and coffee at a dinner party, or on Valentines Day.
