Blizzard Dinner

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.

Earlier this evening, I burned a whole bunch of calories at the gym. I did 45 minutes on the elliptical, ran for 15 minutes, and then evened it all out by eating a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard from Dairy Queen. It’s all about balance, right? 😉

Damn, these things are GOOD! Best dinner I’ve eaten in awhile! :mrgreen:



For some reason, I totally forgot to take photos of my lunch this afternoon. I’ve been blogging for over 2 years now, so you’d think it’d be second nature to me by now, right?!

I ate my carrot sticks and orange before I even thought to snap a photo, so there’s just a shot of the aftermath. Oops! 😳 Lunch also included a vanilla Chobani and a packet of maple brown sugar instant oatmeal.



After work, I snacked on a piece of whole wheat toast with buffalo sauce and melted mozzarella on top. It was such a good snack. I also munched on a handful of almonds, but I forgot to take a photo of those, too. I don’t know where my brain was today?! 😕

  1. That is so cool that Healthworks is doing that event. Those marathoners deserve something like that!

    After a hard training session, I do feel like I deserve some cookies or something like that sometimes too! It was well earned!

  2. I am just catching up on my blog reading… sorry that you didn’t have a great experience this week. I don’t know what happened, but I hope you are feeling better. Sometimes life just throws us road blocks. You have a whole blogging community cheering you on and supporting you!
    On a happier note, I LOVE blizzards but haven’t had one in years. Your dinner looks fabulous. My favorite flavor is Cookie Dough 🙂 Makes me smile just thinking about it! Hope you have a fabulous Friday!

  3. BLIZZARDS!!! Amazing. I don´t have a DQ close by now, but when I was a kid growing up in Ohio I used to always get a blizzard with Nerds. The colored little chunks of sugar. Looking back on this I want to shake myself… nerds instead of Reese´s or Cookie Dough?? What was I thinking?!?! Anyway, great dinner 🙂

  4. My favorite pasta dish is ANY pasta w/a marinara sauce and any kind baked chicken. My Dad told a story of when he was very young and a spaghetti w/chicken dinner was one of his all time favorite meals. His story sounded so good, I fell in love w/pasta and chicken too!

  5. I love that you enjoyed your dinner — it looked delicious! 🙂 Sometimes you just need to go with what you’re craving. I bet it was super-satisfying, too.

  6. @Samantha- It doesn’t negate her exercise at all! She worked hard at the gym and burned around 600 calories at least. She can eat a blizzard for dinner if she wants to. The point of exercise isn’t JUST to lose weight or else I would have given up a long time ago. It’s about taking care of your heart and getting a good cardio workout. It’s about feeling good physically and mentally. If you don’t splurge every once in a while you’re going to go crazy! At least, that’s my opinion.

    Tina- We drove up to N.C. yesterday and passed SO many DQ’s and now I wish I would have stopped. There’s always the return trip! 😉

  7. This is so funny!!! I actually had a single dip of Reese’s ice cream on a sugar cone last night for dinner!! Thanks for making me feel better about that haha 🙂

  8. Oh my gosh, I LOVE blizzards!!! SO jealous. I was craving one so bad yesterday, but they closed the DQ near my house 🙁 Might have to trek out to the nearest one this weekend!

  9. Ahhh I hadn’t been to DQ in years until a couple of weeks ago – had myself a Midnight Truffle Blizzard. Um…can I just say – worth. every. single. damn. calorie.

  10. Oh. Your buffalo mozzarella toast sounds so delicious. I really like that idea for a quick, savory snack. I can imagine myself just putting it in the oven until it is brown and bubbly. Thanks!
