Rise and shine to all the possibilities of 2005. A $44 million private donation was recently awarded to the University of Michigan for the purpose of speeding up the search for a cure for Type 1 diabetes. Pharmaceutical companies are stepping up the exercise message by distributing pedometers and initiating "walking as exercise" programs geared to motivate our vast and ever growing Type 2 population. Individuals like Chris Jarvis, the Canadian Olympic rower are volunteering their time to speak about the importance of incorporating a regular exercise program into daily diabetes care. Noah Moore, an intrepid 22-year-old type 1 has been trekking around South America on a self-perpetuated mission to educate people, especially youth, about caring for their diabetes. These are a few examples of a network of possibilities weaving and fortifying diabetes care, education and inspiration.

Here are some breakfast ideas to vary your routine for the new year. If you live in a warm climate, try buying fruit and veggies at a local farm or orchard.
