Dream Vacations and Blondie Cupcakes

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.

Doesn’t the title of this morning’s post sound delightful? :mrgreen:

So, did anyone else have a rough night of sleep? I tossed and turned all night long, so I ended up skipping my morning workout. I hate that when it happens, but I definitely needed the extra sleep. I’ve been a zombie for the past few days!



Today’s breakfast was a bowl of Stonyfield Oikos Greek yogurt mixed with banana slices and Peanut Butter Bumpers.

The Peanut Butter Bumpers are so GOOD! I still prefer Peanut Butter Puffins, but the Bumpers give them a run for their money!

Last night, I recreated my Silken Vanilla Cake recipe, but added 1 tbsp of molasses and poured the batter into a cupcake pan instead of a flat one, which turned out SO delicious! The molasses tasted incredible mixed with the strong vanilla flavor. These babies almost taste like blondie cupcakes! :mrgreen:

I didn’t eat this treat for breakfast this morning, but I did eat a couple of them last night for dessert. 😉

Question of the Day

If cost wasn’t an issue, where would your next vacation be?



  1. i just made the cupcakes! YUM! Another great recipe by Tina. (I had a hard time finding the Nasoya Silken at the grocery store, it was in the product section near the bagged salads.

  2. Definitely somewhere in Italy. I’ve been twice and I could just never get enough. Also, that tofu cake looks so nice and simple, I’ll have to try it next time I’m in a pinch.

  3. Ahh…I would definitely go to Egypt! I have been obsessed with going to see the pyramids since I was a little kid. I hope I get to go someday 🙂

  4. Every time I see your iced coffee, I mean to make some of my own! I’m just one thermos short.

    As for a trip, I’d go to Ireland, definitely. I’ve only seen a tiny little corner of it around Dublin and I’m DYING to go back!

  5. I know this probably sounds weird, but if money were no problem, I would be booking a trip to Antarctica for sure. I have always wanted to go on one of the ships down there to see the penguins in their natural habitat. I’m determined to save up the $10,000+ to get there by my 40th birthday (and before all the ice melts).

  6. Hey Tina!

    I would go to New Orleans.

    I’ve been to Europe, but never really travelled beyond the East coast of the US! What a shame, right? But I have been to Boston 3 times and I love it every time ;). I bought a Harvard sweatshirt on the streets just for kicks haha


    P.S. Thank God we got summer back over here!

  7. If money were not object I’ve always wanted to go to Africa. However I the Bachelorette last night and they were in Spain and I miss it. I studied there in college and would love to go back to travel.

  8. Those cupcakes look incredible!
    My dream vacation would definitely be to Greece where I could enjoy fresh fish, Greek yogurt, and beautiful views of the ocean:)

  9. I’m leaving for a cruise to the Bahamas on Friday and I can’t wait! It would be more of a dream if my bf was coming, but since it’s my sister’s bachelorette party, I think we’ll have a blast!

    Your iced coffee always looks soo delicious!

  10. Those cupcakes look amazing!

    I’d probably pick somewhere in Europe. I really enjoyed London and would hopefully tour all of Europe this time!

  11. Seriously… not to be lame… but if I had no financial burden or responsiblities I would plan a round the world trip- from Peru, China, India, Seychelles (b/c I’m dying to go there), South Africa, Australia, hawaii and home… So really it’s more of a horseshoe around the world.
    To pick one I would do Seychelles as our anniversary is tomorrow and we could CHILL! 😛
