Guest Post by Kerri Walsh Jennings: Sweet Relief with Honey!

It seems like just yesterday I was talking about how busy my summer is—and now I’m halfway through all of my tournaments! You all know I love competing and taking my game to the next level and without the love and support from my family and friends, I couldn’t make it through this hectic summer schedule. From international tournaments to events in my hometown, I’ve been all over! What’s been keeping me going on the sand? My favorite all-natural energizer: honey

  • Honey Sticks: With my busy travel schedule, it’s pretty tough to keep all of my liquids to 3 ounces and under! To get around this, I bring honey sticks in my bag to tournaments. No sticky messes, easy and portable to eat, it’s the perfect boost of energy after a long flight or to pump me up at the net! To find some ...

#HoneySweetRelief on a Sunny Day in SoCal

Posted by National Honey Board on June 18, 2014 - 2:08 PM

It’s officially summer vacation and we are so excited for what’s in store the next few months.

The National Honey Board and Pro Volleyball player and Gold Medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings kicked summer off in style by visiting Hermosa Beach on June 6. Armed with honey bear bottles, honey sticks and honey lip balms, the team hit the beach to bring beach goers sweet relief from the hot summer sun.

At the event, Walsh Jennings challenged beach bums on the sand court. Every hour, a couple of lucky people were randomly selected to play a quick match of volleyball with Walsh Jennings.

To attract beach goers, the team built a huge tent, filled with chaise lounges, chairs, couches, photo booth and sweet honey snacks and beverages. Crowd favorites ranged from Honey Blueberry Citrus Slush, to an ...

Guest Post by Kerri Walsh: Sweetening up My Game!

I sure do love the offseason, but few things compare to my heart racing after winning a volleyball match. I’m riding an adrenaline high after recent trips to China and Brazil, and I cannot wait to compete in my next 15 tournaments. That’s right, THREE, just in the month of May. I’ll let you in on a secret—three is a lot. To get me through the rigorous schedule, I’ve created my personal “survival kit” that keeps me at peak performance on and off the beach.

Most of the items I rely on daily basis are already in my kitchen pantry:

  • Just a tablespoon. From Manhattan Beach workouts to hitting the cardio at the hotel gym, I find honey has become my go-to workout partner. With about 17 grams of carbohydrates and 64 calories per tablespoon, it provides me a quick burst of ...

NHB Attends Drool Baby Expo

NHB Attends Drool Baby Expo

Last week the NHB went to Boston, Mass. to attend the Drool Baby Expo. We are generally on the other side of the coin, in terms of being the ones exhibiting at these shows. We chose to attend this year because not only is it our first year hearing about this show, but we also wanted to make sure it would be a good fit for our 2015 exhibitor line-up. Once we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by how well it was organized. There were staff members there to greet us getting off the elevator, full of information on where to go and how the night would unfold.

Once we took the escalator down onto the exhibiting hall, we were thrilled to see all the big names in baby gear. Not only are these shows full of the latest and greatest products to buy, but they are a wealth of knowledge for new and expecting parents.

It was ...
