First Groceries of 2009

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.

I haven’t posted a grocery list in months now, so I thought it was about time to do so! Plus, Mr. Mal and I are trying to stick to a weekly grocery budget. Today, we took the time to meal plan, take advantage of in-store specials, and check the unit price on products. Our total today was just $2 over our budgeted allowance, which isn’t bad for us! We’re usually about 20 bucks over! Let’s hope we can keep up the “bargain shopping” through 2009!

  • Box of clementines
  • Shredded mozzarella

  1. I recently discovered your blog and LOVE it! :0 I would like to read the archives, they seem to go back to February 1st, but from reading the comments, I get the impression the blog goes back even further. Can you direct me?
    You are an inspiration to someone like me who is trying to erase years of bad eating and finally establish some good habits.
    Have a great weekend!

  2. @Judy: Hi Judy! Thanks for your comment! I started the blog in February 2008, so that’s as far as the blog goes back. Enjoy reading the achieves!!! 🙂

  3. Love reading about (and seeing) the goods! And boy do I envy those who can buy Kettle Chips and not eat them all on the first day… 🙂
