Does anyone know a trophology nutritionist in Gainesville?

I was recently in my home town for the last holidays. I met a friend who is a devoted trophology (food combination) follower. I am wondering if any of you have known of some nutritionist here in Gainesville who applies trophology? Trophology is basically the right combination of foods in your diet.  Thanks

Organization is the Key

It is common for people to become bored with their homes and want to make a change.  That change can be moving, or even just remodeling or renovating.  An even easier change to make is simply organizing accumulated clutter.  Clutter is overwhelming and many people choose to ignore it or run away from it, but by using simple organization techniques the clutter can disappear and a whole new vibe will be felt through the home.  When many people hear the word “organize,” they panic. …

Fun at Our First Gators Baseball Game

My son, Loren, and I experienced our first Gator baseball game last night and we had an absolute blast! Honestly, I think that I had more fun than he did.

Fun Ways to Spend Spring Break

Hi Gainesville Moms! 

Spring Break is upon us and the little ones need activities to do.

My son and I already kicked off our break today after church with front yard discovery. We explored broken tree limbs in the yard and made a pile of the limbs with green pine needles still attached. We continued with a trip to the library and walk around the neighborhood and local track. He got a chance to ride his bike while I sweated some and lost calories.
