Cleaning Spree

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.

Mal and I went on a serious cleaning spree this afternoon. Our house is totally spotless now. I love being able to sit back enjoy the look and feel of a clean home. Don’t you? It’s really the best feeling ever! (Ok, I’m a dork! ;-))

As you can see, I finally cleaned off our dining room table! 😉



For dinner this evening, I tried a new recipe: Pasta Carbonara Light from the cookbook, Secrets of a Skinny Chef.

I’ve always loved pasta carbonara (or any cheesy pasta really), but I never loved how I felt after eating it (i.e. blah and lethargic). This recipe has all of the same flavors, but tastes much lighter. It even tasted a bit healthy with the extra veggies mixed in, but not too healthy. My husband didn’t realize it was a “light” meal! 😉


As usual, I didn’t follow the recipe exactly. I nixed the basil, used buttermilk instead of half & half, grated asiago instead of Parmesan, and added mushrooms to the recipe. It still turned out well! 😉



And, for the record, before cooking dinner, I snacked on a sliced peach.


Now, I really want something sweet. I’m thinking a couple of Effie’s Oatcakes with Barney Butter smeared on top. Mmm! Yep, that sounds delicious.




  1. I’m just the opposite whenit comes to cleaning the house. I’m glad my hubby is a clean freak (he does it). I’ve never tried Barney Butter before??

  2. I must be a dork too, because that is truly an amazing feeling . It totally stinks the whole time you’re cleaning, but then you get to lean back, all sweaty, and just relax in the tidiness of everything!
