Crazy Cravings

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.

Today’s lunch included a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I had some crazy cravings for a bunch of different foods, so I just went with it. I had a fried egg, kiwi, apple & sweet potato yogurt, spinach with olive oil and Garlic Gold, and chocolate chip cookies. Random, right?



My lunch was definitely a random mix of foods, but it satisfied me on a number of levels.


A little while later, I enjoyed a Carrot Cake Larabar. Holy delicious! I can’t believe that forgot I had this flavor in the pantry!

  1. Sometimes the random flavor combo are the best ones. This morning on the side of my oats, I had scrambled eggs with jalapeno hummus mixed in + crushed tortilla chips. It just worked! Also, I’ve yet to find a Carrot Cake Larabar in Dallas. Still looking…:)

  2. What a great company — and how nice of them to help you raise more money! Those bowls in the top right hand corner are adorable 🙂

    I have lunches like that Tina, where I have a bit of everything and nothing makes much sense except that it tastes good!

  3. The holidays being here before we know it…reality check!!! I hate shopping for gifts. But all of those look like great things.

    I have random lunches like that all the time. Today I had leftover tofu stir fry and then an apple with Nutella on the side. Not quite the traditional mix of flavors. LOL

  4. love the website!

    and i always enjoy having disjointed meals. they’re probably healthier for you than always trying to make a meal cohesive! looks like you got fruit, veggies, protein AND dairy in there! well rounded!

  5. Dorry(comment #4) you might try Market Street for the carrot cake lara bar flavor! The one in Plano at Preston and Park has a lot of flavors, but I can’t remember if carrot cake was one, sorry.

  6. How funny, I never have random meals like that because I always crave either all sweet stuff or all savory stuff or all crunchy or all creamy. I hate mixing textures and tastes!

    Yay for more ways to raise money!

  7. Hi Tina! I’ve been following your blog for a few months now (I think it was the carrot n’ cake combo that drew me in) and after seeing your post today I just had to comment!

    I am working in China as a volunteer at a foster home, and the picture of the aprons in the “7 Hopes United” collage is from a little free-trade org. that’s started up right here where I live! It’s called Scarlett Threads and they sell the cutest aprons (heh, I’m actually wearing one right now!). If you search “apron” the first 10 aprons that come up are from here – in China!

    The website for anyone who is interested is

    They really are the cutest aprons =D

  8. I too love, looove random mix of foods. Nothing better!

    Your pictures are so beautiful and soothing for the eye. Awesome!!!

    I just love “coming in” here. But it’s actually my very first time of leaving a comment. We’ll have to make a habit out of it! 🙂

  9. I love crazy cravings – sometimes, you just have to roll with it and eat what you feel!
    Still haven’t tried Carrot cake larabars, I better get on that!!

    Have a great weekend with M & M!

  10. Looooove all the things from Seven Hopes United!! What a great organization! 🙂

    Carrot Cake is actually one of the few flavors of larabar that I haven’t yet tried. Maybe I’ll pick up on this weekend!
