It will work great, as long as your food includes carbohydrates and proteins.She recommends things like Greek yogurt with honey, or peanut butter, honey and banana sandwiches.Dulan says honey only has 64 calories per tablespoon. So it's a value when it comes to food value.In baking you can use it and save calories because honey is so sweet.
