A Great End To A Great Weekend

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜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.

I can’t believe my weekend in Vermont is all over. How sad. πŸ˜₯ BUT, Mal and I already have a plan in the works to visit again this fall. Hopefully, I can make it until then! πŸ˜‰


After a late-night of partying, we ended up sleeping in a little bit. Once we got moving, Mal, Murphy, and I headed out to grab iced coffees for everyone while Dave and Marie started on breakfast.


Dave made us egg and cheese sandwiches on toasted English muffins.


I also shared a cherry turnover with Marie. Delish!


After breakfast, we went downtown to Church Street again. This time, we brought the dogs and let them explore. There’s always a ton of dogs on Church Street, so they had a great time meeting new friends on our walk.



For lunch, we stopped by my favorite sandwich shop ever: The Red Onion Cafe. (There was no way I was visiting Burlington without eating a Red Onion sandwich!)


The Red Onion Sandwich is made with roasted turkey breast, Vermont Smoked Maple Cheddar, red onion, sliced Granny Smith apple, bacon, and sun-dried tomato mayo. The Vermont Smoked Maple Cheddar is actually a new-ish addition to the Red Onion sandwich. It used to be made with smoked Gruyere cheese, which is how Mal and I make them at home.


Best sandwich ever!!! :mrgreen:


I’m not sure what’s for dinner tonight, but I’m thinking something light and healthy. Perhaps a salad with some feta crumbles on top? My body wants to get back on track after the weekend I just had. Yowsahs!

Enjoy your Sunday night!



  1. I’d never heard of apple in sandwiches before I started reading your blog. It must be such an American thing.. it still boggles my mind a little!

  2. i know what you mean about wanting to get back on track…indulgent weekends are a blast, but it’s always nice to feel like you’re eating super healthy again!

  3. Burlington looks so cute! Which cheese did you like better on the sandwich? Maple cheddar sounds so good!!

    Glad you had a fun trip! Any plans to move there in the future since you love it so much? πŸ™‚

  4. I know the feeling. My body always craves that balance after a more indulgent weekend. It’s what makes it all part of healthy living though. Glad you had so much fun!

  5. So the onions are raw?! Sorry, I’m not a fan of raw onions. Take em out and that sandwich is very very appetising. I think it’s high time for me to start trying apple slices in my sandwiches!
