Free (and Cheap) Food

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.

Today is Iced Coffee Day at Dunkin’ Donuts! Hooray! 😀

Stop by your local U.S. Dunkin’ Donuts on Tuesday April 21, 2009 and turn 50¢ into refreshment you can feel good about. You Kin’ Do It. For each small Iced Coffee you buy on Iced Coffee Day, 10% of the purchase price will go to The Dunkin’ Brands Community Foundation to support Homes for Our Troops.

Last year, I was so excited about D&D Iced Coffee Day, I went twice! :mrgreen:

Free Cone Day

Today, Tuesday, April 21st, is also Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s

Scoop Shops are opening their doors from noon to 8:00 pm to serve a free scoop of your favorite flavor. Wahoo! Isn’t free food the best?! :mrgreen:

And, here’s yet another way to get some free food: MixMyGranola Giveaway! Ok, onto breakfast…


I had planned to wake up early and “shred” before work, but I didn’t fall asleep until after 11:00 pm last night, and I’m not sure 6 hours of sleep would have been enough for me. I usually need a solid 8 hours to function well. Plus, I’ve been trying to sleep more since I have started reading this book called Thrive. The author, a vegan Ultra Marathoner, stresses the importance of sleep for recovery from exercise as well as the for the reduction of stress. His thinking behind stress, sleep, and nutrition is so interesting. I’m not even halfway through the book yet, but it has already inspired me to be kinder to my body!

Ok, let’s try this again… onto breakfast!

In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup dry oats
  • 1/4 cup wheat berries
  • 1/4 cup wheat bran
  • 2/3 cup vanilla hemp milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 banana 
  • peanut butter Puffins
  • 1 scoop of peanut butter 

Delicious! :mrgreen:

Lunch Preview

I have a feeling that I won’t be able to blog about lunch later today, so I decided to include my packed lunch in this morning’s post. I hope that’s cool with you guys! 😉

Today’s lunch includes a repeat of last night’s dinner: Garlicky Pinto Beans atop a homemade salad with arugula, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and broccoli. 

My sweet treat is banana chips mixed with chocolate chips and a dark chocolate Adora disk

I also have a lovely apple for a snack as well as a Pure Bar

All together…

Question of the Day

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? 



  1. Hi! I recently stumbled upon your blog and I really like it 🙂 I look forward to reading more.

    I guess the free cone day explains why I saw sooo many people today walking around with Ben & Jerry’s cones. My favorite ice cream flavor is peanut butter!

  2. I too saw that it was free iced coffee day at D&D! What a great deal! And I only wish we had a Ben and Jerry’s around here.

    I love ice cream and its so hard to pick just one, but I think my alltime favorite will always be Mint Chocolate Chip. Only the green kind though! What is up with white mint choc. chip?? Definitely not the same!
