Human Breakfast

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.

Good morning! :mrgreen:

Murphy wanted me to share his dog breakfast on the blog this morning. Looks delicious, doesn’t it? 😉


(Yes, my dog eats off of a plate… and a Christmas placemat.)

For breakfast, Murphy ate 1 cup of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul (puppy variety) and a bowl of water from the kitchen sink. Best breakfast ever! He scarfs it down every morning!


Ok, time for the human breakfast!

Good morning, Mal! :mrgreen:


(Poor Mal. He’s such a good sport about me subjecting him to early-morning blog photos.)

For breakfast this morning, I made Mal and me a big batch of apple-cinnamon-raisin-brown sugar oatmeal to share.


In the mix:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Raisins
  • Cinnamon

The key to apples in oatmeal is cooking them before you add the oats. I cut up the apples, add them to the pot along with some water/milk, and then sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar on top. I let them cook for about 3-5 minutes before adding the oats, water, soy milk, raisins, etc. The apples come out soft and sweet!


I also had a glass of iced coffee with breakfast.

Question of the Day

What’s your absolute favorite condiment?



  1. awww murphy and mal are so handsome!! even in the morning 😉

    does peanut butter count as a condiment haha. i love kethcup too – i douse my potatoes, squash fries, veggie burgers etc all in like a 1/2 ketchup

  2. I like honey mustard – though others have come up with some good ones – balsamic, greek yogurt, and hummus especially – not sure those quite count, but they are yummy.
    I love my apple oatmeal – it makes it so much more filling.

  3. I love spicy mayo (like in spicy sushi rolls) but I make my own “healthy” version. I mix a few tablespoons of mayonnaise made with canola or olive oil (tastes like regular mayo but like, 1/3 of the fat and calories) and then i mix in hot sauce and some cayenne pepper. I can’t say it’s exactly how they make it at the sushi place, but I find it even more delicious! It’s great on sandwiches, etc.

  4. Ketchup! I’m obsessed. I literally used to put it on every meat I ate as a child. My father would cringe as I doused my filet mignon in a ketchup and slapped it on some wild salmon. Eww I know. But I loved it and still love – just not to that crazy extent anymore.

  5. That is TOO cute that Murphy eats off a plate!

    My favorite condiment is ketchup! I haven’t found anything that ketchup doesn’t make taste better! haha!

  6. I am in love with Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo sauce. No other buffalo sauce will do!

    What do you think about Brown winning Kennedy’s seat? No worries if you don’t want to get into political discussions on your blog 😉

  7. I love condiments! My fave is spicy honey mustard. I will literally sometimes eat things that go with mustard because I want the mustard.
