What I’m Loving Lately 89

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.

Hey guys! Happy FriYAY! I can’t believe the weekend is here! What a crazy, busy, and totally fun week it’s been – and now the weekend is here! Holy cow, the summer is already flying by! Since it’s Friday and all, here’s the next edition of What I’m Loving Lately!

Hunter Flip-Flops – Ooooh, yes! I love my Hunter boots so much and wear them a ton, so I was pumped to see that the brand makes flip-flops too. Sign me up! 🙂 I’m also lovin’ this jersey tank dress . I need it in my life!

Lower calorie and somewhat healthy cocktails – Just in time for the 4th! Cheers!

Banza Chickpea Mac & Cheese – The nice people from Banza sent me some of their chickpea mac & cheese, and I couldn’t be more in love with it! It’s so tasty, gluten-free, and loaded with protein – 18 grams per serving! Even Quinn likes it! I don’t think I’ll ever buy traditional boxed mac & cheese again.

The Deluxe variety is pictured below (mixed with chopped spinach). The cheese is like Velveeta, but the ingredients don’t include any of that funny stuff!

Basecamp’s CEO Limits Himself to 40-Hour Workweeks and He Thinks You Should Too – Loved this article, and it definitely made me think twice about how much I work.

Lovin’ these lettuce wraps! My gosh, they’re delicious and couldn’t be easier to make – just pop the ingredients in a crockpot and you’re good to go!

Beautycounter shade chart – This is so helpful for matching shades between products!

I know that I mentioned this tumbler last week, but I just had to share it again because it goes everywhere with me lately, and I’m truly loving it!

Question of the Day

What’s up for the weekend and July 4th holiday?




  1. Three cheers for a 40 hour work week. I need a boss that thought 60 hours was average. More work does not mean better work! Speaking of I’m looking forward to a week at the beach on vacation to celebrate the holiday!

  2. I’ve never heard of chickpea mac & cheese but it looks amazing! Two of my favorite foods combined? Win! Spending the 4th of July weekend at the beach, like everyone else in DC! Hoping to get a ton of reading done and some time away from the interwebs 🙂 Enjoy your weekend Tina!

  3. I’m a little late to this comment party, but I have got to get my hands on that mac and cheese! I wouldn’t even call myself a huge mac and cheese lover, but that one looks incredible, especially mixed with spinach!

    My 4th of July weekend was incredible! It was a mix of friends, traveling (spent the weekend in Annapolis!) and celebrating my two year anniversary with my dude. Oh, and lots of cocktails. 😉
