Coffee (and Ice Cream) Date

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜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.

I can almost always eat, but I didn’t have much of an appetite tonight. Well, I did, but not my normal appetite. I just wanted to eat cold, creamy foods, like yogurt and ice cream. Nothing else sounded appealing to me.

Does this happen to anyone else? Any idea why?


Mid-afternoon, Mal and I took Murphy for a 90-minute walk around our neighborhood. When we returned home, I snacked on a Stonyfield Super Smoothie, which was quite tasty.



I wasn’t super hungry when dinner rolled around, but I felt like I “should” eat something. I ended up making a turkey sandwich with Roasted Garlic Mustard and pickle slices on a Sandwich Thin.


After dinner, Mal and I took a stroll to Starbucks for an impromptu coffee date. It was a beautiful evening, so we took advantage of the nice weather.


We both ordered iced soy lattes. He ordered a grande ; I ordered a tall.


I ordered my iced latte with decaf espresso. I can’t drink caffeine late in the day because it keeps me up all night long.



After about an hour of sitting outside and chatting at Starbucks, we headed home. Mal wanted ice cream, so I joined him for a few several bites. Of course, I had an appetite for Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream! πŸ˜‰


Check out the cookies in this baby! Holy yum! πŸ˜€


Mal and I are continuing our Jersey Shore marathon tonight. We’re trying to finish Season 1 before Season 2 starts on Thursday night! πŸ˜‰



  1. Lately I’ve been wanting nothing but smoothies, icecream, yogurt, etc. either. Craziness. I think it has something to do with summer and just wanting something quick ‘n’ easy. And refreshing. πŸ˜€

    Love that you guys had a coffee date!! πŸ˜€

  2. I’m no expert, but you might be craving cold, creamy things because you are eating “too many” hot foods. It might sound weird, but it’s a Chinese medicine thing: too many yang or expanding, hot foods will make your body want to even it out with a more yin or contracting, cold food– your body is hot and needs something to cool it down.

  3. My girlfriend & I stayed in and watched the entire marathon. Ginormous bag of Kettle Corn in lap, pillows & blankets a plenty… not to mention the stack of take out menu’s we were armed with in the event of hunger – we weren’t going anywhere. (:

  4. Yes! I know why we crave milky, creamy, smooth sweet things. It comes from when we are young. In Ayurveda, an Indian (not native american) based belief of health when you crave dairy based foods it is because you are needing nurturing of some kind, going back to the “mother’s milk” days so to speak. Also, if you are craving sweet, it is because you are maybe a little grouchy or miffed…. ie not so “sweet” yourself. I think you would find this interesting as an ayurvedic lifestyle is ALL ABOUT BALANCE. It even discusses how what you eat and the rhythem of your life effects your physical well being (balance).
