10 Things My Mom Taught Me

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

A few days ago, Jenna wrote a really sweet post about some of the things her mom taught her. I loved the idea, so I decided to do the same.

  1. Two wrongs don’t make a right.
  2. No meal is complete without a piece of cat (or dog) hair in it.
  3. Pay attention to unit price and it will get you the best deal.
  4. There’s nothing nutritious about soda.
  5. The directions in the box aren’t the only way to play the game.
  6. On occasion, it’s okay to eat half of a batch of brownies.
  7. There are better things to watch on TV than Star Trek.
  8. Don’t eat yellow snow.
  9. The Best Apple Crisp ever is made with this recipe.
  10. When you grow up, your sister will be your best friend.

What has your mom taught you?



  1. What a lovely tribute to your Mom! Mine taught me, among a zillion other things, that bad times pass, sometimes its best to hold your tongue, accept others for who they are, and that beige underwear under summer clothes is best! 🙂

  2. hahaha.. love that your mom taught you to not eat yellow snow. 😉

    my mom has always taught me that different friends bring different gifts to your life. and that you can never wear too much blue.

    and that YOU make your own happiness.

  3. My mom was ashamed that I didn’t know the Enterprise runs on Dilithium crystals.
    So the “Star Trek” thing? Yeah, kinda the opposite at out house, lol!
    But the biggest lesson she taught me is that just ’cause I’m a girl doesn’t mean I can’t do all the things my older brother does. And, boy, was he annoyed when I tagged along with him to baseball, karate, skiing, and tennis!

  4. These are so wonderful! I love this post!
    The best piece of advice my mother ever gave me was that when you’re feeling your worst, go outside. Fresh air and a short walk makes the world seem like a better place!!
