CNC Meal Plan: Week of April 22

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.

Hello, hello!

We’re back from our cruise (which was a-mazing) and normal blogging will resume tomorrow. I missed you guys!

I hope you all enjoyed the guest posts on CNC while I was away. I really tried to mix it up with a variety of topics and opinions to keep things interesting and entertaining. A big THANK YOU to all of the guest posters who contributed!

Since no week is complete without a meal plan, here’s what I have cooking for this one!


Here’s this week’s menu:

Sunday: Turkey sub from Subway

Monday: Tuna melts with carrots and hummus

Tuesday: Pasta with Kale & Walnut Pesto

Wednesday: Out to dinner with friends

Thursday: Frisée Salad with Poached Eggs & Bacon

Friday: Glazed Pork Kebabs

Saturday: BLTs with roasted Brussels sprouts and salad

Shopping list:

  • Bacon
  • Pork loin
  • Frozen kale
  • Frozen waffles
  • Avocado
  • Eggs
  • Pecorino cheese
  • Tomatoes
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Soy milk
  • Bananas
  • Bread
  • Salad greens
  • Red bell pepper
  • Green bell pepper
  • Peanut butter
  • Yogurt
  • Frosted Mini Wheats
  • Chips
  • Veggie burgers

*My shopping list doesn’t include all of the ingredients necessary to make the above meals. It’s just what we needed and includes items for other meals and snacks (not just dinners).



  1. And P.S. My comments keep saying “awaiting moderation” … and I’m guessing it’s happening to other people because I couldn’t see anyone else’s comments on the posts while you were gone. Just wanted to make sure you were aware! 🙂

  2. Yay, so glad you are back!
    Whew, that was the longest week of my life without some carrots n cake!

  3. Welcome home! I bet Murphy was *almost* as happy as your readers to see you again. 😉 Your guest bloggers were awesome – such a cool way to introduce us all to new peeps! If my readers would miss me half as much as I’ve missed your posts the past couple of weeks – I will consider my blog a success!!!

  4. Welcome back. I hope you had the time of your life. How do you make your tuna melts? I’m always interested to hear how others make those classic recipes.

    1. It depends on my mood, but either avocado + tuna with melted cheese or relish + tuna with melted cheese. I also sometimes add mustard, salsa, chopped raw veggies and/or truffle salt to the mix.

  5. Yay for Vacation! I could really use one of those sometime soon. Anyway, as I have said before, your meal plan is one of my favorite posts of yours and I look forward to it each week. Noticed you are making BLTs this week–one of our favorites as well. If you want to kick it up a notch, make it a BLTA (A is for Avocado). Maybe it is because I am in California, but I put Avocado on everything and I have not found one thing that it doesn’t make better.

  6. All of those meals sound delicious, I’ll definitely have to try to re-create some! How do you go about planning such well balanced meals? I’m just starting to change my lifestyle to live healthier and would love some advice as to how you stay on track and motivate yourself, you are an inspiration!

  7. We’re all happy you’re back! Can’t wait to see pictures from the vacation. Very cool guest bloggers– I learned about some great new blogs/workouts/tips!

  8. Welcome home!
    I’m so impressed that you already have a meal plan all set up. It usually takes me a few days to get back into the groove after vacation. Looking forwrad to hearing about and seeing pictures of your trip! I took the same cruise 1 year ago this weekend and wish I was back there TODAY!

  9. Are you using Rachael Ray’s Kale pesto recipe? If so, can you blog about it or list any modifications? I’m interested but not loving the recipe’s oil content.

    WELCOME BACK!!!! While your guest posts were seriously awesome and mixed things up, your readers are glad to have you back 🙂

  10. So happy you’re back to blogging!! I missed reading your posts!! Hope your trip went well. Murphy must be so happy to see you guys again!

  11. Welcome back! I just wanted you to know that I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED all of your guest blogs this past week, it was so interesting to hear about such a wide variety of topics from people in different walks of life. Love love loved it!
