Fab Friday Morning + Brandless Life

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.

Hi, friends! Happy FRIYAY to you!

I just wanted to pop in real quick to share a “Quinn and Mumma” morning because (selfishly) I want to remember these days, and CNC is a great way to document them. I mean, our little dude is going to be in Kindergarden before we know it, and I know I’ll miss these days a ton!

Friday morning started off fabulously with an update from one my past nutrition clients (see below). She did the Jumpstart plan with me awhile back, which is only 4 weeks, but intended to “show you the ropes” with regard to macros. Of course, I’m there for support and accountability, but my goal is to TEACH you how to track macros and then send you on your merry way. This client been rocking macros for weeks on her own and checking in with me now and again. This morning’s update was especially awesome! 🙂

Also, please note that this client references August, and it’s now midway through October. Slow and steady LIFESTYLE changes and habits win the game!

Quinn and I headed to CrossFit for our usual Friday gym day. The workout was a fun one, and I kind of liked that it wasn’t timed. We really focused on form today, especially with regard to the Turkish Get-Ups, which are kind of tricky!

After CrossFit, Quinn and I headed to swim lessons at Goldfish. Despite his face in the photo below, Quinn had an AWESOME time. Seriously, the kid had such a blast. I love that he loves swimming so much!

I saw this flyer on the bulletin board at Goldfish – just wanted to share for the local readers. I’m obviously not against candy on Halloween, but I love the idea of trading it in and gifting it to soldiers overseas.

By Friday, our fridge is typically pretty empty, so today’s lunch was a random mix, but it turned out deliciously!!

Quinn went down for his nap right after lunch – he was exhausted – so I took a quick shower and then busted out my laptop. I saw an ad on Instagram last night for Brandless and made a note for myself to check it out today. It’s actually super cool, and I’m planning to place my first order as soon as I’m finished with this blog post.

(Not sponsored, I’m learned about Brandless for the first time today, but it definitely seems right up our alley as a family, who loves high-quality/organic products at an affordable price.)

Brandless sells “better-for-you” quality products and makes them more widely accessible and affordable for everyone. They have direct relationships with their suppliers and customers, which eliminates all of the extra costs associated with inefficient and unnecessary markups. Nothing is more than $3, and every time you check out at Brandless, a meal is donated to someone facing hunger. Amazing, right? And if you place an order, you can get $6 credited to your account using my (affiliate) link. How’s THAT for awesome?!

Ok, I’m off to place my order. I’ll be sure to report back! 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend, guys!!

Question of the Day
