Chocolate Milk + Fish Sticks

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.

Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day!

Did you see that I just launched a new FALL-INSPIRED macro offering?! It includes all sorts of delicious, macro-friendly seasonal recipes (i.e. apple, pumpkin, squash) along with your own personal macro goals. It doesn’t include one-on-one coaching, but it’s great for someone who just needs a little kick in the butt and motivation to get back on track. It’s perfect for post-Labor Day! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Ok, so onto our day so far – which, for Quinn, started with chocolate milk and fish sticks. Apparently, he was hungry before bed last night (or just planning breakfast for the next morning like his Mumma does) because he said he wanted them “after his nap.” Quinn woke up more than ready for his chocolate and fish sticks this morning, so that’s exactly what I made him – and he ate and drank them right up! Please note (again): The abandoned Pull-Up on the coffee table. Haha! I assume they’re not that comfortable?

I was also very much looking forward to breakfast this morning. Listen to this combo that I mixed together last night and let sit in the fridge overnight: SO Delicious vanilla yogurt, a mashed up piece of banana bread, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, and fresh sliced strawberries. It was so good!

After breakfast, I headed to the gym for a nice long workout. I needed it after not working out very much in the past week or so.

After class, I took some time to share some “sneaky” ways to get more protein into your diet over on Instagram. It’s a personal struggle as well as one that my many of my nutrition clients often encounter. Head over to my feed if you’re in the same boat!

Now I’m drinking an iced coffee/collagen/Ripple milk protein shake as I blog and catch up with email. My To Do list is crazy today since I have a very special photoshoot on the agenda for tomorrow.

Question of the Day

What are some of your “sneaky” tips and tricks for getting protein into your diet?

  1. Banana bread makes everything better. I’m a fan of putting collagen into anything I’m drinking, especially morning iced coffee, for a protein boost! I also love incorporating beans. I made TJ’s cauliflower gnocchi last night and added a can of white kidney beans + spinach and ate it alongside tempeh. Definitely amped up that protein and plant-based at that!!

  2. I used to ask for tuna for breakfast when I was Quinn’s age! My mom had the mentality of “as long as she’s eating” and I swear it’s the reason I have a good relationship with food!

    I feel like I get adequate protein in my diet, but it’s probably due to the swaps, etc. I made. Egg whites in oatmeal, Greek yogurt instead of lower protein options, always prepping lean protein sources so I can make a quick meal to name a few.
