Message from Christine:
We've added a new "menu driven" navigation system to the website based on visitor feedback.
For example, notice the Canned Food category (left). When a visitor clicks a food category all of the
sub categories are displayed.
Please click around and let me know what you think of the new menu system: email@example.com
Thank you for your efforts and make it a great week!

This week's question for your nutrition blog:
From: Martha T. (e-mail not disclosed for privacy)
Subject: diabetes & thanksgiving?
My husband was diagnosed with diabetes as few months ago and has been working hard to lose weight and control his blood sugar. Each year we have a family
gathering for thanksgiving that includes lots of food (large turkey dinner with all the trimmings and assorted pies & cakes for dessert). What are your
suggestions to ensure my husband doesn't overeat but also does not feel deprived this thanksgiving?
After you answer a question on your blog please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the link (so we know that you posted). The deadline
is every Sunday at midnight. We will post several responses in our next newsletter!Example: Christine's Blog
