I Met A Pretty Green Girl

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.

Look who I had lunch with today! Janet from Pretty Green Girl! :mrgreen:

Janet is on vaca in Boston for a few days before heading to London (!!!) for her new job! She was so friendly and sweet in person, and we had lots to talk about– including funny stories about horrible first dates! We both had our fair share!

I’m so glad that I had a chance to meet Janet this afternoon! And I get to see her again next weekend in San Fran! 😀


When Janet asked if I wanted to get together for lunch, I knew just the place to take her: Crema Cafe, which is one of my favorite places in Harvard Square! 😀 Of course, it was bumpin’ like it always is!


For lunch, I ordered the beet salad. I’ve been on a real beet kick lately! I love ’em!


Janet and I both ordered Crema’s infamous Ginger Lemonade. I’ve raved about it so many times on my blog, Janet really wanted to try it. I think she liked it a lot! 😀


I have more moving on the agenda for tonight, but I see a light at the end of the tunnel! I have tomorrow off from work, so my weekend has begun! 😎



  1. I had so much fun! Thanks for making the time to meet up with me and introducing me to one of your favorite places – my sandwich and ginger lemonade were awesome! Enjoy your day off tomorrow! 😀

    (PS: Despite how I look in that picture, I was not drunk, ha!)

  2. Jealous of your three day weekend, enjoy it!

    I have to admit that I’ve never tried a beet before, for some reason they kind of scare me! But maybe I should be adventerous and try 🙂

    Have a wonderful evening, good luck with the unpacking.

  3. hey tina,
    I have a research conference coming up soon and have an abstract brewing on my blog but would love your input as well as anyone interested on how to make it better. If you or anyone who is interested in women and nutrition (everyone) don’t mind just stopping by my blog to give your opinion it would be greatly appreciated!

  4. Glad you had a nice lunch. It is always fun to meet blogging friends in real life. I will be in SF next weekend! I can’t wait for the conference. I look forward to meeting you. I have tomorrow off too! Yahoo!!

  5. Lunch looks yummy – beets are so good! I saw a recent article on spices and they suggested adding ginger to lemondade to “jazz” it up… glad to hear it turns out well!

  6. Enjoy the weekend! So lucky you are going to SFO next week! We went a couple of weeks ago and loved it.
    Awesome that you got to meet up with another blogger too. I loved meeting everyone at the summit! 🙂

  7. Are you doing a blogger meet-up in SF? My girlfriend and I (avid readers of your blog) would love to meet-up with you! Please let us know!

  8. The salad looks delicious. Beets (we call them beetroot!) are delicious roasted in their skins with a little olive oil, cooled, peel (the skins slip off) and then used in salads. They’re so sweet!

  9. I gotta put Crema Cafe on my list of places to try. That ginger lemonade looks so refreshing and I love a salad with beets! Good luck with the rest of your move. BTW, have you ever tried roasting your own beets?
