Welcome to Carrots ‘N’ Cake!
This 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 favorites that are not necessarily “healthy,” but are still delicious and fun to eat. If eaten in moderation, I believe that the “bad” foods can be part of a well-balanced diet.
This same philosophy and desire to share it with others helped me secure a book deal with Sterling Publishing. In May 2011, my book, Carrots ‘N’ Cake: Healthy Living One Carrot and Cupcake at a Time, was published. It’s based on my blog, so it’s a fun take on leading a healthy lifestyle– eating your carrots and savoring your cupcakes, too! Instead of restrictive dieting, obsessive calorie counting, and constant hunger, I show readers how they can drop the pounds (and keep them off) by adopting eating habits that are healthy, balanced, and above all, livable.
My name is Tina. I’m 33 years old, and I live on the South Shore of Massachusetts with my husband, Mal, and my adorable pug, Murphy, who is a therapy dog. I love fitness and exercise, and I have a Level 1 CrossFit trainer certification as well as a NASM personal trainer certification. My favorite ways to stay in shape are CrossFit, running, and yoga. I also love hiking, baking, and traveling.
Managing and blogging for Carrots ‘N’ Cake is a full-time job for me, but I also juggle a variety of projects, including writing two articles each week for Health.com, acting as a spokesperson for the Almond Board of California as well as a Community Leader for The Laughing Cow and a Fitfluential ambassador. I am also a regular contributor to the Wayfair Idea Lounge blog and JUNK Brands blog.
I hope you enjoy Carrots ‘N’ Cake! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
