Glorious Muffins

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.

It was the perfect morning to sleep late and lounge around. It’s been raining pretty hard all morning, so Mal and I weren’t in any rush to get going.

Around 10:00 AM, our stomachs finally started to grumble, so we headed to the Ocean Breeze Cafe for breakfast.


The menu at the Ocean Breeze Cafe is pretty extensive. They serve a range of traditional breakfast items as well as the most glorious muffins! 😀


There are so many yummy flavors to chose from! It’s always a tough decision for me.

I seriously wait all year long for an Ocean Breeze Cafe muffin. It’s actually one of the highlights of my trip to Newport! 😉

Not surprisingly, I picked the exact same muffin as I did last year: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip. 😀


Holy yum! The muffin was practically as big as my head!


On the side, I had a fresh fruit cup with strawberries, blueberries, and cantaloupe.


And pumpkin spice coffee with cream and sugar.

I dominated the muffin! I barely left a crumb!


Mal and I are spending the next hour or so doing work (blah), but then we are headed to the Taste of Rhode Island for lunch. I’m looking forward to it!



  1. WOW this muffin looks huuuuge!! I’d love to try one of those pumpkin chocolate chip ones!!

  3. the pumpkin choc chip sounds so good – so did the lemon raspberry i spied in the case! … have so much fun in newport, and if you want chowdah, you have to go to the black pearl – it’s the best!

  4. Mmm – pumpkin muffins. I made some from scratch last weekend – I should have added chocolate chips like yours had. …Enjoy your weekend. My hubby & I just got back from a getaway. We stayed at Greyfield Inn on Cumberland Island, Georgia. It was fabulous – you & Mal should check it out sometime!

    P.S. Can’t wait to hear your news!

  5. That muffin looks so good! I don’t know if you have any Argo Teas by you, but if so you should try the lemon poppyseed muffin. It is beyond delicious.

  6. What’s your surprise job announcement???? 😉
