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 an extremely high amount antioxidants, which leads to decreased inflammation….in a gerontology course I’m taking right now, I’m learning about the association between antioxidants and decreased arterial plaque 😀

  2. Pomegranate juice has the ability to prevent LDL (the BAD) cholesterol from being oxidized by free radicals and causing plaques in our arteries, pom’s are truly wonder fruits!

  3. Phytochemicals, need I say more? I think the best health benefit is that once you have gotten through the hassle of seeding a pomegranate, you are left with pure deliciousness, making it an easy way to get good antioxidants.

  4. POM Wonderful juicing process presses the whole fruit, so the bulk of the nutrients of the pomegranate remain in the juice. It is naturally packed with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, and since pomegranates are not always available at the market, it’s the perfect way to have pomegranates in your diet year round.

  5. “One of them showed that POM juice can slightly lower blood pressure and increase blood flow to the heart. Although I do think pommegranates are great for you, I am a little skeptical of the studies: they had very few participants (like 10 for many of them!), they were sponsored by POM and not independent researchers, and it isn’t clear if they were double blind! Nonetheless, I like the stuff and I know it’s good for me. Just pointing out the potential biases.”
    Where I have been able to read about it?
