Hello world!

My name is Lindsay, and I am a Nutrition Editor at http://FOODPICKER.org .  It is a website that helps people with diabetes to make more informed food choices, and it features a database of thousands of foods.  Although the site is geared toward those with diabetes, it contains nutrition information that can be very useful for planning any healthy diet, and can be a great aid in diabetes prevention for anyone who thinks that they may be at risk.  The foods we eat have a direct impact on our health, so it is important that we use the tools available to us to make more informed diet choices.

Diabetes education is a subject of great interest to me because my mother was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a couple of years ago.  Learning to live with the disease can be a major lifestyle change, and it can be very difficult to break those old eating habits.  

I will be answering questions here that have been sent to foodpicker.org.  Most will be questions about diabetes, but I will be discussing general nutrition topics as well.  I am excited to share the knowledge that i have obtained through my own nutrition education and research. 

Stay tuned for my next post!
