From Our Test Kitchen | The Benefits of Bee Pollen

First just let us say -  we are not doctors.  But we are very interested in health and general wellness.  The shop girls are always sharing recipes, natural beauty products and wellness news we read in an article (or saw on TikTok).  Perhaps we are late to the party, but lately recipes featuring bee pollen have caught our eye.
