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’s 51 degrees outside! The sun is shining. The snow is melting. It feels like spring! Hooray! 😎

Sadly, the high for tomorrow is only 25 degrees, but I’ll take what I can get! 😉

Hi, Murph!

Check out the perfect heart that dried onto the front walkway of our house. How appropriate for Valentine’s Day!



Mid-morning, my stomach started to grumble, so I whipped up a batch of roasted broccoli with Garlic Gold and olive oil. It held off my hunger until lunchtime, no problem.

Before lunch, I hit the gym for a quickie workout. I ran for 30 minutes on the treadmill and did this workout. I thought about running some more, but I just wasn’t feeling it. Instead, I finished my workout with 15 minutes on the elliptical.


For lunch, I whipped up a Blueberry-Quinoa smoothie, which was delicious, nutritious, and incredibly satisfying.

In the mix:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1.25 cups Almond Breeze
  • 1/3 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal

I have to admit that I’m rocking the smoothie recipes lately. Who knew I was such a skilled smoothie maker? Check out these recent concoctions:


A couple of hours later, I made myself a little treat: a whole wheat English muffin with peanut butter and butterscotch chips on top. <3

I’m making Mal a special Valentine’s Day dinner tonight, so I need to get cracking on the preparations. Plus, the house needs a serious cleaning.

See ya!



  1. Hey Tina (or someone) – maybe you can help me with my smoothie problem. I tried combining fresh blueberries, strawberries and almond milk in a smoothie, but it curdled! Any idea why?

    I have to say your smoothie creations sound amazing. I can’t wait to try the gingerbread one!

  2. I love butterscotch chips! How do you measure how much to put on the bread, though? I have trouble with portion control.

  3. can i please just say how much i love murphy?
    I LOVE all the far away shots of him where he’s just looking at the camera, he looks so confused all the time!!
    he is my favorite!!!
