A Delicious Day of Eats

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.

Hello, hello!

Yesterday was filled with a bunch of delicious eats. Oh, yes, it was. Don’t you love when that happens? It makes my stomach happy!


Over the weekend, I stumbled upon a recipe for Plantain Pancakes with Maple Coconut Cream and Toasted Walnuts (doesn’t that just sound delightful?!), and, of course, I needed to make them as soon as possible. And, holy goodness, they were amazing! I’ll definitely make them again in the near future!


After breakfast, I poured myself a glass of iced Dandy Blend with some canned coconut milk mixed in. My colon decided to start bleeding again last week, so I’m trying to take it down a notch with my eats (and activities). I’ve been having a little too much fun lately.


I spent the rest of the morning blogging and catching up with emails (my inbox exploded over the weekend).


Around noon, I took a break for lunch, which was shrimp cooked in butter and garlic on top of zucchini ribbons with truffle oil, salt, and pepper and some chunks of avocado. It was fabulously fresh, incredibly satisfying, and, oh, so delicious. Huge fan of this meal.



And dinner”¦ you already heard about my delicious dinner, right? My recipe for Garlic Mustard Drumsticks is definitely a keeper!

Sick and tired of the treadmill? Or should I say “dreadmill”? Running on a treadmill definitely has the potential to bore one to death, but using frequent intervals in your workout is a great way to mix it up!

After the warm-up (set incline to 1.0), this workout ramps up with short bursts of sprinting, alternated with slower recovery periods. The constant changing of speeds keeps your body guessing and your mind engaged, so you won’t even notice how quickly 30 minutes flies by!

Question of the Day

What delicious thing did you eat today (or yesterday)?

P.S. Speaking of delicious eats, the 4th Annual Chili Cup in Boston is coming up on February 21””just wanted to share the details! http://bostonchilicup.eventbrite.com/#



  1. The first delicious food of this post is very appropriate because February 5 is NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY!!! ( I thought you needed to know)

  2. I am hooked on coconut flour tortillas. (I posted the recipe today) They are amazing. I, like you, don’t eat 100% paleo but I enjoy trying and using paleo recipes when I can. So this one was a win win for me! 🙂 That lunch salad looks awesome. I am a huge fan of shrimp…the husband not so much. That just means…more for me! 🙂

  3. I made a ham and cheese souffle last night. My second souffle ever and it was a success. I don’t know why people complain about making souffles. They’re easy!

  4. Sorry that your colon is flaring up again. That is not fun! The pancake recipe looks very interesting.

    We had shrimp the other night for dinner over a paleo pad thai which was divine! THanks for the inspiration. 🙂

  5. The best thing I’ve had recently is your two ingredient pancake! Fitting for national pancake day. And will most definitely be trying my hand at these plantain pancakes. Love!!!

  6. last night my boyfriend and I made tilapia w/ lemon juice and old bay seasoning, with some steamed carrots and broccoli. So tasty!

  7. We made the banana cookies that you feature on your blog! It is my husband’s FAVORITE cookie recipe (with honey, dark chocolate chips, and walnuts~ YUM!). We also are working on creating a family binder (suuuuper boring but a necessity!). That isn’t delicious, but the feeling of being organized and knowing where everything is certainly makes me feel better!

  8. That prawn, ribboned zucchini and avo dish looks so good! I forget about using zucchini in that way… good idea! My eats today have been pretty basic, but I tried a new tea that was really good… The Republic of Tea’s Organic Tumeric/Ginger. Pretty tasty 🙂

  9. sorry you aren’t feel well again. 🙁 hope you’re doing much better soon.

    the shrimp looks AWESOME. did you buy it fresh or frozen? trying to save on groceries lately, but maybe frozen seafood isnt a good idea. thoughts?

  10. My dinner was steak served with sweet potato hash and broccoli! Simple, easy, and nutritious, it hit the spot after a weekend that was filled with a decent amount of decadent food and cocktails. 🙂

  11. Tina, I have scoliosis like you and I’ve noticed that walking on the treadmill causes my back to hurt vs walking outside. Do you notice anything like that?

    Of course my scoliosis is worse now that I’m 42 years old. I’ve shrunk an inch since being in my 20’s. It sucks.

  12. French Toast Breakfast Scramble (thank you forever for introducing me to this!), veggies topped with dill & cucumber Greek yogurt dip, avocado chunks wrapped in slices of turkey, and a red velvet cookie!

  13. Made dinner last night of pan seared haddock, topped with a little bit of blue cheese & roasted tomato and onion with a side of garlic green beans. Soooo delicious!!!!

  14. Those pancakes sound amazing, I’ll definitely be cooking those in the near future! I make a similar dish to your lunch with the shrimp salad but I use sliced cucumber and a tad bit of lime instead of zucchini and truffle oil, I’ll also have to try that!
