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.

Tonight, I attended a wonderful wine tasting at the newly-opened Boston Wine Exchange. The event was hosted by Healthworks, and it included a number of seasonal wines, food from Roly Poly, and raffle prizes. It definitely wasn’t a bad way to spend a Tuesday night! 😉



The Boston Wine Exchange is a new shop in the Financial District that sells high-quality wine, spirits, and beer. They also have a fancy-schmancy wine tasting station as well as weekly in-store events.




Tonight’s event started with tastes of spring-inspired wines. I don’t remember them all, but I really loved the Liberty School Chardonnay— lots of flavor, but not too oaky.



The Liberty School Syrah was also really good– full bodied and “chewy.”

After trying the featured wines, it was time to test out the tasting machine! These babies are new to Boston, so I was really excited to give it a whirl.


I think just about everyone was excited to give it a try! 😀


I helped myself to a few more pours of the Liberty School Chardonnay. 😉

You may recognize a couple of fellow Boston bloggers in this photo: Meghan and Melissa! I LOVED chatting with these ladies! We have a lot in common.

Fun event! Thanks, Healthworks and Boston Wine Exchange!! :mrgreen:

Food then BED! Good night!



  1. Can you explain how the wine tasting machines work? Do you get to choose the size of your tasting, like 1 ounce, 2 ounce…whole glass? Do you have to deposit a ticket or money? And I see there are buttons on the machine..what are all the buttons above each of the wines about?

  2. OMG I spot the Crios Malbec. Did you try it?! It is my absolute favorite wine!! I am always so jealous of your wine/beer tasting outings. My bf is just like Mal too, he LIVES for craft beers, I also love them, but have developed an allergy to beer over the years, not cool :-/

  3. Hi Tina. I’ve been a follower for over a year and I have to say that after your few day hiatus (when I continued to read other blogs/articles/newspapers) and returning to your blog (and catching up on your past few days) I’ve realized your blog has become really infused with plugs for your store/Eggs/this alcohol stuff you’ve become involved. I’m glad you’re experiencing benefits from your hard work but I have to say I miss the old, normal posts. Either way, congrats on your achievements via your blog success.

  4. I have been a daily blog reader for the last 2+years and you have all inspired me to start my own. My Story of weight loss is a little different then most. I would love for you so stop by and check it out. Keep up the great work!

  5. Looks like an awesome event! I’ve only tasted wine and beer a few times, so I don’t know how to tell from a good and bad one. The machines look so cool! 😀

    Have a great night!


  6. when you described that red wine as “chewey” you had me really intrigued. How is a wine chewey? (now i must try it). wicked cute pic of all you guys. of course i recognized melissa and meghan right away. love their blogs 🙂

  7. I’ve recently found your blog and love reading your posts…thanks! I used one of those fancy wine machines at a cool wine/beer store in Columbus, OH. It was so much fun! Glad you enjoyed your experience.
