A “Business” Meeting

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.

My friend, Blain, and I planned a “business” meeting tonight to discuss some possible changes to my blog.

Blain and I used to work together at HSPH, so we’d talk everyday, but now that we don’t work in the same building, it was definitely time to catch up. We killed two birds with one stone by meeting for dinner at Shenanigan’s in South Boston.

Shenanigan’s is literally a 2-minute walk from my apartment, so I was glad to finally have the chance to check it out. It was funky inside!


The food was pretty good too! 😀

I had planned to skip the alcohol tonight, but it’s not every night that I go out with an old friend, so I splurged on a Harpoon Octoberfest. (I need a serious detox SOON! 😕 )


Then, I munched on a roll from the bread basket. As Jenna would say: No carb left behind! 😉


For dinner, I ordered the house salad with honey mustard on the side for dipping.


The salad was loaded with fresh veggies and the BEST croutons ever!


Here I am with the webmaster himself!


POM Giveaway

Did you know that November is National Pomegranate Month?


To celebrate, the folks at POM have offered to give one lucky CNC reader a whole case of pomegranates to enjoy! It’s a fantastic prize if you ask me! 😀

To Enter: Check out the ‘Health’ section on the POM website and leave a comment about one health benefit of pomegranates. I will pick a winner tomorrow morning. Good luck!



  1. Pomegranates have the ability to neutralize free radicals…which we get from metabolism and in the environment from smoke and pollution…ewwww, thus making antioxidants super beneficial.

  2. I got such a kick out of the POM website’s health section – I’m a science grad student, and they definitely didn’t hold back from sharing the research, down to the scientific terms 🙂

    My favorite was: “Pomegranates have shown activity against the cytokine NF-κB and the MAP kinases JNK and ERK, which are critical steps in the cascade of events leading to inflammation” — I actually work in a lab that works on NF-κB, so I loved that they wrote about that 🙂 I’d love to know more about how pomegranates do that!

  3. Poms are seriously the superfruit! They have so much antioxidant power and also reduce inflammation…which now after reading these comments helps with ACNE too!!! What a great fruit haha!

  4. POM has more polyphenols than red wine?! Maybe I should be drinking a glass of POM every night instead of red wine! (or maybe I’ll have both since I love me some red wine haha)

  5. As a future doctor, I’m impressed that POM lists so many studies published in peer-reviewed journals that tout the health benefits.

    More importantly, CONGRATULATIONS!

  6. As an exercise physiologist who works in Cardiac Rehab, I can’t wait to tell my patients that pomegranates help lower LDL cholesterol.

  7. One word: antioxidants. There isn’t really a need for more elaboration than that.

    And, CONGRATULATIONS on the book deal! That is fantastic!

  8. oh sweet love, a whole case???? please.please.please. i just had my first pom a few weeks ago and LOVED it. I bought another HUGE pomegranate today. I didn’t know that they helped with inflammation. What don’t they help with???

  9. I love that POMegranates are filled with antioxidants! I also love their gorgeous color and the way the arils fly all over the place when you eat them.

  10. One health benefit of pomegranates is that their antioxidants have the ability to prevent LDL cholesterol from being oxidized by free radicals. Cool!

  11. Antioxidants, reduces inflammation and acne! No more prostate cancer with these guys either — these are all important, but we cannot leave out…makes mouth happy!
