3. Mānuka honey
Mānuka honey isn’t the same sticky stuff you have in your pantry. It’s a monofloral honey, meaning it predominantly comes from the nectar of one plant species called the Manuka bush in New Zealand. Mānuka honey has a distinctive flavor that’s milder than typical honey; it’s also much thicker. It’s considered one of the most beneficial forms of honey in the world. “Manuka Honey is a potent anti-inflammatory that helps to suppress exercise-induced inflammation in the body,” Carlucci says. “It’s also rich in carbohydrates, which are needed to refill glycogen stores and deliver protein to your muscles.” Try drizzling some onto yogurt, or into tea.
