Did you know that you can reduce your allergic reaction to local pollens by consuming local raw honey?  Find a local bee keeper in your area and ask about getting raw honey from them.  You want honey from your area because it will be made from the plants in your area.  By consuming small amounts of local honey, you increase your tolerance of the local pollens and reducing your allergic reaction.

I just love me some guac!  This recipe has a nutritional boost and added greenness with the addition of the spinach.  Don’t tell anyone that you are making a healthy dish even healthier.  Just let them enjoy the great flavor.
