New Name..Same Great Mission and Ingredients

  Many people ask me why did I decide to change the name of my company.  Well, I am happy to share the reason here in my Beelieve blog.   Beesweet lemonade was the name I thought up when I started my dream at just four years old. I’ve grown a lot since then and I continue to have big dreams! One day I would like to grow beyond lemonade and I needed a name that would allow me to do just that. So I decided to change the name of the company. The new name is Me & the Bees Lemonade. I...

7 REASONS WHY I USE FLAXSEED IN BEESWEET LEMONADE

7 REASONS WHY I USE FLAXSEED IN BEESWEET LEMONADE

My great-granny Helen sent me her favorite flaxseed lemonade recipe from her 1940’s cookbook! Flaxseed is a great source of fiber. Flaxseed is a plant source of omega-3s  Flaxseed contains lignans which reduce risk of several different cancers. Some call it one of the most powerful plant foods on the plant. It’s a very pretty flower and you can grow it in all regions of North America (it’s cold winter and drought tolerant) Flaxseed has been cultivated since ancient times. It’s mentioned in the Bible 6+ times.

WHY WE NEED BEES

Bees Save the Bees

WHY WE NEED BEES

Bees play a big role in nature, and it’s good to start teaching children about them early so they understand how important these little insects really are to the world we live in. I love learning and teaching about bees.  For a great overview of why we need bees, please download a PDF from my friends at the NRDC on how nature’s tiny workers put food on our tables.

MIKAILA'S WAYS TO SAVE THE BEES

Bees Save the Bees

MIKAILA'S WAYS TO SAVE THE BEES

Bee-informed. Read as much as you can about honeybees and other pollinators!  Buy local honey. The backyard beekeeping movement is here to say! support local bee-keepers.  Mix it up. Plant bee-friendly flowers with different colors, shapes and bloom times.  Don’t spray it! Avoid using herbicides or pesticides in the garden. Ladybugs, spiders, and praying mantises will naturally keep pest populations in check. BeeSweet. Did you know that I donate money from the sale of my lemonade to organizations fighting hard to save the honeybees. Visit my Where to Buy page and Buy a Bottle, Save a Bee!  Share the Buzz....
