Hi, 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.

Fit + Fueled

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.
Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

You guys know that I am a BIG FAN of meals with simple ingredients, especially if I can just pour them all into my Instant Pot. This recipe for Instant Pot BBQ Lentils only calls for 3 main ingredients, and it couldn’t be easier to make. If you follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, this recipe is definitely for you! It’s so tasty, satisfying, and makes great leftovers!

Feel free to use whatever lentils you have on-hand as well as your favorite brand of BBQ sauce. I always check the ingredients in my sauces because they can be sneakily filled with all sorts of corn syrups and funky ingredients – so just a quick PSA to read your food labels! You will definitely see these lentils pop up again on the blog in the near future!
