Dinner and a Movie

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.

For some reason, Mal and I were exhausted last night, so we ate dinner, watched a movie, and then climbed into bed around 8:30 PM. We read and talked for a little while, but I guess it was just one of those nights.


We fired up the grill for dinner last night. On the menu: grilled turkey burgers and salads. Simple yet delicious.

For dessert, I whipped up a batch of Banana Soft Serve with shredded coconut mixed in. Love.

After I finished eating, I got comfy on the couch with my favorite guys. We watched Contraband with Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale. It was just okay. I lost interest about halfway through and read blogs instead. A duck flew into Monica’s head when she was running (!!!) and Skinny Runner wrote this post with the best blogging tips in the world.

This morning, I woke up starving, which is why my (two-ingredient) pancake looks totally ridiculous with that massive blob of sunflower butter on it. Haha! I also drank a glass of iced Choffy with almond milk.

Question of the Day

This one is a two-part question: 

What’s your favorite dinner?

What’s your favorite movie?

Mine: Margherita pizza with a pumpkin beer (*sigh*) and Pretty Woman.



  1. Let’s see favorite dinner has to be Portobello Pizza. We stuff portobello mushrooms with pizza ingredients for an awesome Paleo pizza crust. Favorite movie is a tough one, but I think I have to go with The Bourne Identity ( I love me some Matt Damon! ).

    P.S. I absolutely love banana soft serve too. We make it all the time with a little bit of almond milk, vanilla, and chocolate chips mixed in. DELISH.

  2. why have you not been adding the pb to your 3 ingredient pancake anymore? i’m sure it tastes fantastic without though!

    1. I cut it out over the weekend when things started to get really bad with my colon. I figured fewer ingredients, the better. The pancake turned out so well, I just keep making it!

  3. My dog lays like that too when I rub her belly, haha! My favorite movie is Forrest Gump or Walk the Line, and my favorite dinner is roast beef with corn on the cobb and mashed potatoes. I only have it about twice a year though (sigh).

  4. I just tried the 2 ingredient pancake and loved it! Thanks so much! As a gluten intolerant girl, I appreciate it so much. I topped mine with PB and added some cinnamon and such. I was wondering though if you have ever added protein to your pancakes?

  5. Dinner: Salad Nicoise with Alaskan Salmon
    Favorite Movie: Dangerous Liaisons, John Malkovich is perfectly evil!

    1. It’s good, but it’s no iced coffee! It’s quite a bit weaker (but maybe I didn’t brew it strong enough?) and the flavor is bitter chocolate.

  6. Dinner would be a Japanese smorgasbord (if that’s not a contradiction in cuisine terms).

    Movie: Thelma & Louise / All About Eve.

  7. Favorite dinner: My mom’s chili OR Quinoa turkey chili from Taste of Home. They’re both good.
    Favorite Movie: Charade or either Break Up. But really, I have a million favorite movies.

  8. My all-time favorite dinner would have to be steak, potatoes, and a green veggie of some kind. Although I’m very partial to pizza margherita myself! As far as movies go it’s really hard to pick a favorite, so many that I like, but a recent one that surprised me was Man on a Ledge – title was so dumb that I thought it would be bad, but my husband and I both loved it. Waaayyyy better than Contraband…

  9. Favourite dinner would have to be a big, juicy burger with the works (including egg and beetroot), with a large glass of Skinnygirl margarita.

    Movie? Mean Girls! I am obsessed. I even had a Mean Girls board on my Pinterest πŸ˜€
