Is That Him?!

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.

Murphy and I have been waiting all day long for “Dad” to get home from work. Mal had to stay late at school and then planned to go to the gym for a workout, so we’re waiting patiently for him. Some of us are acting more patient than others.


What’s that noise? Is that him?!?


*Sigh* It must be the neighbors.


Mom, enough with the camera. Taking pictures of me isn’t going to get him home any sooner.


Poor, Murphy. He picks his head up from the couch at every sound he hears. I hope Mal gets home soon, too. Murphy is great company and all, but I miss my hubby!

(FYI: Our living room walls are not neon yellow. I just got a little crazy with the photo editing! ;-))


I knew Mal wouldn’t be home until late, so I made myself an afternoon snack to hold me over until dinner. I had a Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Scone with a bunch of strawberries on the side.



A little while later, I started on dinner, which was Rachel Ray’s White Bean, Tuna and Potato Salad. I originally planned to make this meal last Friday night, but Mal and I ate tuna melts instead. (Neither of us were in the mood to cook.)


I like this recipe a lot. Beans and cooked potatoes always seem to add a little extra something (satiety?) to a salad. It must be all of the delicious carbs!


On the side, I had a piece of de-lic-ious homemade garlic bread. (I never understood the hype about Garlic Gold, but I now get it. Holy amazing!!)



And, for dessert, I whipped up a batch of Banana Soft Serve with chocolate chips. I have a freezer full of frozen bananas, so I figured I should try to make a dent in them.


We’re still waiting for Mal to get home. Murphy and I just want to hang out with him!

Enjoy the night, bloggies! The surprise is coming SOON! :mrgreen:



  1. I love your salad idea.The garlic bread looks perfect with the browning just right.It takes some time before you are perfect with it.The nutrition kept in tact while the food is light is the ideal way to go healthy.Hope you have a wonderful time with Mal.

  2. I love how you can read the whole first post! It makes me more inclined to click on the older ones. Hope this is a permanent change. Love your blog!!
