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.

So I decided to change the name of the company. The new name is Me & the Bees Lemonade. I love...

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.
