Acting Childish

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.

This afternoon, Mal and I received the best anniversary card in the mail from my mom. It pretty much sums up our marriage! πŸ˜‰


Inside, it says: “Making faces behind the back of whoever’s acting childish helps, too.”


Love it! :mrgreen:

Mal and I are always acting childish and goofy together. I swear, we act like we’re 5-years-old most of the time! πŸ˜‰ But, hey, lots of laugher makes for a great marriage, right?


I tried something new for lunch today: Buffalo Tofu. I could have sworn I saw a recipe on Mama Pea’s blog for it, but maybe it was on a someone else’s blog? I searched a few of the likely suspects (Healthy Tipping Point, Fitnessista, How Sweet It Is), but came up with nothing. In the end, I just winged-it and did my own thing.


I pressed my tofu overnight, sliced it into half-inch slabs, poured some buffalo sauce on it, and let it marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes before pan-frying the pieces in olive oil.Β It seemed to work pretty well! πŸ˜‰ (If anyone knows what recipe I am talking about, feel free to send it my way!)


I added the Buffalo Tofu to an arugula salad with carrots, tomatoes, celery, scallions, and crumbled Athenos feta.


For “dessert,” I enjoyed a very ripe peach. It was now or never with this baby! It was definitely on its last day. The skin was all wrinkly.


I’m heading to the gym next. My hip is pretty sore from yesterday, so I’m planning to keep my workout low-key with time on the elliptical and some serious stretching afterward.

P.S. I have a fun surprise coming this evening! I’m finally going to reveal what I was doing in New York City a few weeks ago!



  1. can’t wait for the surprise! i love the card…that’s how my hubby and i act ALL THE TIME! our friends always say that there’s really never a time that we don’t mention farting at some point in the conversation…oops πŸ™‚

  2. Super cute card!! Peaches are very temperamental – great one day and wrinkled the next! They are peaking right now though, so you’re right…now or never. Can’t wait to hear about NYC!!

  3. That’s cute that you and Mal can act silly with each other! I have a feeling that leads to a very happy marriage πŸ˜€

    Your lunch looked delish. Tofu on salad is one of the best ideas EVER. It doesn’t matter how the tofu is prepared- always good.

  4. Cute cute cute card!! πŸ™‚ so very true.

    You have been eating more tofu than usual lately…do you think you have to acquire a taste for it? I’ve only tried it once and did not like it.

  5. Hi-
    Did you know you can do a “food blog search”- when you cannot remember where you saw the recipe… it’s pretty handy..
    happy anniversary

  6. I’m sorry to hear your hip is now bugging you. After knee surgery a few years back and being able to run on it on and off since then I think I am pretty much just giving up on running much. the discomfort just isn’t worth it, even though I love to run. We can start a speedwalkers club πŸ™‚

  7. That card is so cute! I always peruse the selection of daschund cards b/c I have one and the card industry loves them right now. But pug cards are really cute too! What kind of buffalo sauce did you use?

  8. Buffalo Tofu….how genius is that!! Totally trying it tonight πŸ˜‰ I’m busting to read the lowdown on NYC!!
