Girl’s Night In

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 thought about going out with friends tonight, but I decided with the upcoming craziness in my life, a girl’s night in was much-needed. I might as well recharge with a relaxing night at home while I can, right?

To me, a girl’s night in, at a minimum, requires the following:

A Chick Flick

Spanglish is one of my favorite girly movies ever! I especially love Téa Leoni in it! Her character is fantastic! 😀

spanglish Beauty Products

I’m planning to give myself a mani, pedi, and facial while watching my chick flick.

For dinner, I made a simple salad with fresh arugula (it’s heaven!), tomatoes, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar.

IMG_6136 I also had some jalapeño-flavored potato chips.


IMG_6126And I made a batch of No-Cook Granola Almonds Butter Balls. I like these so much more than my No-Cook Peanut Butter Cookies! The granola adds a nice crunch to them! 😀


How to: Combine 1/4 cup dry oats, 1/4 cup granola, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 2 tbsp agave nectar, 2 tbsp (heaping) almond butter in a small bowl. Mix ingredients well and roll batter into balls. Chill in the refrigerator for about an hour. Enjoy! :mrgreen:


Comfy Clothes (preferably PJs)

Just a glass… or two! 😉


Cookie Friday

This afternoon, I had intended to purchase a big ol’ cookie to celebrate Cookie Friday, but when I arrived at Crema Cafe, a special little something caught my attention:


That’s right, a Yellow Squash-Orange-Hazelnut Mini Loaf. It sounded so interesting (and yummy), I could not pass it up! And it was very delicious– moist and soft with a slight hint of orange, a crumbly-granola top, and whole hazelnuts throughout. It was AWESOME! Just what I wanted! 😀



Before I enjoyed Cookie Friday, I ate lunch: pineapple-flavored Chobani with Nature’s Path Organic Granola mixed in. The granola was the “Agave Plus” variety that is made with rolled oats, agave nectar, and sunflower seeds. It was delish!


Lunch also included a fresh fruit cup from Au Bon Pain. I left my camera in the office, so I didn’t snap a photo, but it looked a lot like the pic below.


Today wasn’t the most nutritious day of eating, but it’s Friday and all of the goodies were needed for a healthy mind and soul. Plus, it was kind of fun indulging in comfort foods all day! 😉

Off to relax! Good night!



  1. I love Spanglish!! Great chick flick. And I totally wish I could give myself a pedi right now, my feet are getting demolished with marathon training!
