Welcome to Carrots ‘N’ Cake!
Carrots ‘N’ Cake is where I share my love of food, staying fit, and living a healthy life. While I try to pack the most nutrients possible into each meal, I have a number of favorite foods that are not necessarily “healthy,” but are still delicious and fun to eat (hello, cake). If eaten in moderation, I believe that the “bad” foods can be part of a well-balanced diet and so Carrots ‘N’ Cake was born!
After my son was born, I quickly realized that I didn’t have the same amount of time (or energy!) to devote to my usual healthy habits. But I firmly believe if there’s a will, there’s a way, and I’ve learned how to balance living a healthy lifestyle as a new mom. Often times, it involves quick workouts and easy (healthy) meals, but we make it work. Nowadays, I enjoy sharing these simple–yet effective and efficient– workouts and recipes with my readers. I also share all sorts of (random) updates from my life, so there’s always something new on CNC. Be sure to check back frequently to see what’s happening!
In September 2016, a friend and I launched Designed to Fit Nutrition, a custom meal planning service that takes the work out of planning, prepping, and macro-counting. We offer one-on-one coaching services as well as the necessary recipes, grocery shopping lists, and prep tips to complement your personalized meal plan to help you achieve your goals. Check out our website for more details!
I hope you enjoy Carrots ‘N’ Cake! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me at [email protected].
Certifications & Experience
I’m an avid CrossFitter and runner. I’ve completed 3 marathons and more than a dozen half marathons since 2009 when I started to take running a little more seriously. In 2011, I fell head-over-heels in love with CrossFit after my very first class and continue to enjoy the Sport of Fitness. I also take spinning, barre, and yoga classes from time-to-time. I’m pretty much game for any fitness activity!
