Beware the Peppermint

We are deep into December and we hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season. Hanukkah just finished and Christmas is upon us. It's been pretty warm but totally possible for us to ready for winter. It's not always necessary to wear sweaters and drink hot chocolate outside with this glorious sunshine, but that time will come soon enough.

One of the special treats a lot of us look forward to eating are candy canes. They are relatively low in calories (if you have just one) and are fat-free. But they are loaded with peppermint. Unfortunately, this holiday herb (and it's other festive cousin, sage) inhibits milk production. Every woman is different so we're not entirely sure how much peppermint it takes to affect supply, but it is certainly something to be aware of when choosing holiday treats.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from us to you! And please join us this Thursday at 10 am for our final meeting of 2015.
