Color Clash

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 know that I’m eating a nutritious meal when my food clashes with the majority of my place mats! I had to use a neutral-colored one to photograph my lunch today. All of my colored place mats were just too much! 😯


For lunch, I enjoyed a soup & salad combo: Winter Lentil Soup and a homemade arugula salad topped with crumbled feta.


Feta makes it betta! :mrgreen:


After lunch, I did a little baking while listening to the Rockin’ Holidays radio station on Pandora, which I am loving! I pretty much like all holiday music, but I prefer the upbeat (aka rockin’) songs. The Rockin’ Holidays station weeds out the slow stuff and it rules.

Ok, back to baking!

So, I have half of a bag of apples that need to be used up ASAP. They’re already past the β€œsnacking” stage (i.e. the skin is getting wrinkly), so now they can only be incorporated into recipes. It’s now or never!


So, I used a bunch of them to make my favorite Apple Crisp recipe.Β 


It really is THE BEST!:-D


Once they came out of the oven, I had a few bites, but I’m saving the rest for dessert this evening.


Did you enjoy Cookie Friday today?

Please tell me that you did! πŸ˜€



  1. I bought a piece of pumpkin bread with cream cheese frosting along with my coffee this morning, but have yet to eat it. For some reason it’s not screaming my name yet… Maybe this afternoon!

  2. Not yet, but by the end of the day, I am sure I will have enjoyed cookie Friday! : )
    I need to look up that rockin’ Christmas station on Pandora. We have been playing just the Christmas station and there are some pretty terrible songs that play!

  3. Haha, that’s a good way to gage a meal’s health factor.

    I haven’t had a cookie, but I had a few bites of cinammon roll this morning and there are cupcakes in my future tonight! Close enough?

  4. Love love love apple crisp…mmmm…looks delish, Tina…there’s something amazing about a warm, cozy ‘crisp’ that I just love during these chilly months…warms ya right on up with a cup of hot coco..
    Enjoy your weekend.

  5. Last night I made the “Old Fashioned Sugar Cookie” recipe off of Eat. Live. Run. and they are making for a delicious Cookie Friday! I’ve already had two today. πŸ™‚

  6. I Love apple crisp too. If ever you’re in the mood for a slight twist give Martha Stewarts recipe a try from her site. It uses one of your favorite ingredients, Oatmeal.

  7. Yes… at the moment I’m enjoying the Peppermint Cheesecake Brownies that I made for our blogger cookie exchange last night. They are 100% addicting πŸ™‚

  8. Your lunch looks pretty πŸ˜€ funny how it was clashing with your placemats! hehe
    PS: Thanks for the tip on the pandora station. The one I was listening to kept playing really sloooooooww songs from like the 1930s! lol So, im happy I can finally listen to some upbeat songs yeyyy!!
