A Lot of Nothing

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.

Since breakfast, I’ve done a whole lot of nothing. Ok, well, that’s a total lie. I actually cleaned the entire house (including the floors), did 3 loads of laundry, and took Murphy for an hour-long walk. So, it was a productive day, but on my own time, ya know? 😉

Mid-morning, Murphy parked his little butt outside our bedroom door. He knew Mal was in there (still sleeping), so I think he started to get a little worried. Eventually, Murphy starting whining and scratching at the door, so we finally woke up “Dad” around 10:30. Mal didn’t seem to mind the pug wake-up call since he never sleeps that late and hates sleeping the day away.



While cleaning the house, I stopped and snacked on a SOYJOY bar. I don’t usually like these bars, but this flavor was pretty good.



For lunch, I threw together a big salad with romaine, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, broccoli, pickles, and balsamic vinegar. (FYI: Chopping up a pickle is an excellent addition to a salad! 😉 )


On the side, I enjoyed the most amazing vegan, raw, sprouted crackers.


One of the many reasons that I enjoy working with OpenSky is because they help me find great new products. The OpenSky suppliers send samples to us that they think would be a good fit for our stores with the hope that we’ll love and share them with our readers.

When these crackers arrived in the mail the other day, I wasn’t sure what to think. Vegan, raw, and sprouted? I’ll try anything once, so I broke into the Sunny Garden Herb flavor this afternoon. Verdict: OUTSTANDING! After just one cracker, I immediately added them to my OpenSky shop.


The Livin’ Spoonful Crackers are made with all raw and sprouted ingredients as well as flax and a mix spices– all sorts of good stuff in one compact cracker! They come in four delicious flavors: Sunny Garden Herb, Coconut Curry, Pesto Pumpkinseed, and Caraway Crisps.


I don’t have a favorite flavor quite yet, but if the others are at all like the Sunny Garden Herb, I will definitely be hooked on these babies! Don’t the Coconut Curry and Pesto Pumpkinseed sound especially appealing?


Love, love, love these crackers! :mrgreen:


Salad + crackers + h20.


For dessert, I enjoyed a small stack of Mrs. Field’s peanut butter cookies. Mmm!


Tonight’s agenda: a fun dinner followed by PJs and a movie.

Best Saturday ever! :mrgreen:



  1. Awh that’s adorable that Murphy wanted to wake Mal up! It must be love….
    I think we have a version of those crackers over in England, by a company called Gourmet Raw – I’ve been dying to try some, but darn are they exspensive!!
    Have a good evening 🙂

  2. Pickles make EVERYTHING taste better. And I think this is one of those cases where I’m relieved as well as sad not to be able to order from your store… I don’t think I can afford an addiction to raw sprouted crackers!!

  3. Awww Murphy is just too cute sitting in front your bedroom door! My Muffin does that all the time even when one of us is in the bathroom! I think they do get worried if they don’t see their “parents” 🙂 Your salad looks delicious, I never thought of adding pickles to my salad. My unusual/rare ingredients are usually almonds, strawberries, green or red onions, grapes…I don’t see too many people adding these to their salads 🙂
