FIRESTONE, Colo., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to increase awareness of the multi-faceted benefits of honey, the National Honey Board (NHB) announced a new partnership today with 3-time Gold Medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings, of beach volleyball fame.
Balancing life as an athlete and mother of three, Jennings finds ways to incorporate honey into her everyday life. By using it in her workout regimen as a natural energy booster and as a versatile culinary ingredient for her family, Jennings finds a multitude of ways to include honey into her lifestyle.
"Honey is an ingredient that I incorporate into every workout to give me a natural boost of energy," explains Jennings. "Since working with the folks at the National Honey Board, I realized that I use honey more than a supplement to workouts—it's a key part of a balanced lifestyle and perfect for my whole family."
Throughout 2014, Jennings will be highlighting the ways she already uses honey as a natural cough suppressant for her family and a beauty ingredient to keep her skin looking fresh, sharing culinary tips on ways to incorporate honey into dishes and of course, speaking about the reasons why she turns to honey for a natural energy boost.

As a star athlete, mother, wife, and active charitable leader, she is a tremendous role model both on and off the sand. Kerri's values fall in line with honey, a wholesome ingredient," says Catherine Barry, director of marketing for the National Honey Board. "Honey has been a staple in consumers' pantries for decades, and with Kerri's help, we'd like to educate consumers even more about honey's various applications, so people reach for it as an everyday ingredient."
