Back on the Yoga Train

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! Happy Tuesday, friends!


I woke up craving my favorite (3-ingredient) breakfast pancake this morning, so I whipped one up and topped it with Teddie Peanut Butter and sliced strawberries. It was so good.

My Favorite Breakfast Pancake

  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1 huge scoop of nut butter

Directions: Blend ingredients in food processor (or mash by hand) and then cook batter like a regular pancake. FYI: Medium-low heat works best. Otherwise, you’ll burn that bad boy!

After breakfast, I headed out to meet a CNC reader/new friend for Peanut Butter Wonderful iced coffees at Marylou’s. Heather and her husband were in town for a wedding this weekend, so she dropped me an email to see if I wanted to get together. It was so great meeting her! We had tons in common and lots to chat about!



After my coffee date, I headed to a class at Dancing Crow Yoga. On my birthday, I received an email from the studio inviting me in for a free class, so I took them up on their offer.


I hadn’t taken a yoga class since last fall, so I opted for a Vinyasa Flow. It felt amazing stretching out my tight hamstrings, hips, shoulders everything. Yep, I definitely need to stay on the yoga train. My body really needs it.

When was the last time you did yoga?


After yoga, I headed home for lunch, which was a salad with roasted curry broccoli and cauliflower, grape tomatoes, tuna-chickpea-Parmesan salad, and Annie’s balsamic dressing.

Lunch also included a container of Oikos Greek yogurt with blueberries, chia seeds, and sliced almonds.

Gooooood lunch!

A few hours later, I whipped up a smoothie with blueberries, ground flaxseed meal, vanilla protein powder, and almond milk. I also ate a chocolate chip coconut NRG Bar.

Off to walk to pug and then CrossFit!

Enjoy the night!

  4. I was wondering the same thing…about how many tablespoons of but butter do you use on top? I put about this much on my breakfast every morning, I just wanted to know roughly how much I’m using too! 😉

  5. Looks like a great day! I too am trying to get back into yoga. So many tight muscles plus a few herniated discs in my back along with arthritis! (yeah, I’m a mess) definitely going to try the tuna-chickpea-Parm combo. I am always trying to find new tuna salad recipes!

  6. Really informative. Yoga and diet go together. In ‘Hatha Yoga Pradipika’ Swatmarama talks in details about mitahara (proper food). Food not only affects our body but mind as well.
