Candy Cane: The Christmas Candy Cane originated in Germany 250 years ago. They started as straight white sugar sticks. A story says that a choirmaster, in 1670, was worried about the children sitting quietly all through the long Christmas nativity service. So he gave them something to eat to keep them quiet! As he wanted to remind them of Christmas, he made them into a 'J' shape like a shepherds crook, to remind them of the shepherds that visited the baby Jesus at the first ChristmasSometime around 1900 the red stripes were added and they were flavored with peppermint or wintergreen.

Pumpkin Spice: Pumpkins are a source of tyrosine, an amino acid our body uses to manufacture thyroid hormone. If we don’t get enough tyrosine in our diet hypothyroidism can develop and existing thyroid problems will worsen. Pumpkins are also one of the best sources of beta carotene which is converted into Vitamin A, also needed for thyroid function. They are a nutrient dense food that also deliver Vitamin C, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc and Copper. All of these nutrients are important for thyroid health. Beets, of course, have many health benefits not the least of which is liver, bile and gallbladder cleansing.

EggNog: The creamy, spiced, often spied beverage that's synonymous with Christmas is a staple at bars, restaurants, and holiday parties throughout the holiday season.  EggNog has roots in a medieval British beverage known as posset, which was a milk beverage made with wine, or beer, cream, sugar, and egg, and thickened with anything from bread to oatmeal. Over time, posset spawned an eggnog-like beverage popular among monks in the 13th century, who drank the drink with eggs and figs.  Milk and eggs, along with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg were considered luxury items.  EggNog was considered an aristocratic drink and reserved for elites.  The beverage gained approachability when it made its way to the American colonies, where farms supplied milk and eggs and where rum was plentiful.  The beverage was often served in a wooden cup known as a 'nog' or 'noggin,' so when combined with one of the main ingredients, egg, the name came naturally.  'Nog' may also be derived from an old English word for extra-strong beers.  These days Eggnog contains very little egg.
