It’s Super Bowl Sunday?

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.

Clearly, I am a huge football fan. 😉

I honestly didn’t know today was Super Bowl Sunday until Dave texted Mal last night to ask if we had plans to watch it. The Super Bowl wasn’t really on our radar (mostly because the Patriots aren’t playing in it), so we didn’t plan to do anything special for it. We haven’t hung out in Dave and Marie in ages, so we decided to get together at our place for dinner, drinks, and football watching.

For our get-together, Mal and I threw together a simple Sunday Bowl spread, complete with chips + salsa, beer, Doritos (because of the pug video), and ingredients for make-your-own tacos.

I’m actually sort of looking forward to the Super Bowl now. Isn’t it all about the food anyway?

[Rewind to this morning]


After breakfast, I headed to the gym for a quickie workout. I ran 3.5 miles on the treadmill in just over 32 minutes (9:09 pace) and called it a day. I love those quick and dirty workouts!


For lunch, I whipped up a Banana Bread Smoothie, which turned out really well. I’m still surprised! The flavor reminded me so much of freshly baked banana bread. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

In the mix:

  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder 
  • 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 cup Almond Breeze

I also munched on a couple of Livin’ Spoonful crackers for lunch.

For those of you watching the Super Bowl, which team are you cheering for?


I’m cheering for the same team as Ellen! 😉



  1. Totally lost interest in Super Bowl when Pats got knocked out. It’s been a good game though. Food spread looks yummy. I’m about to indulge in some hot wings. Mmmmmmm…. Pats in 2012!

  2. I’m watching it right now! I know that doesn’t seem like a big deal, but I’m Australian and in Australia, where most people couldn’t care less, and I’m only watching it because I came to visit my dad and he’s watching it. Crazy times!

  3. I actually had a smoothie for lunch too! I figured I would be stuffing my face during the super bowl so I’d go light on lunch LOL. Your smoothie sounds amazing, I love thick creamy smoothies that taste more like milkshakes!

  4. I had no idea who was playing in the Super Bowl (my friends and I were camping and thought about making bets not as to who would win but as to who was playing), but now that I know the Steelers are playing, being from Cleveland, I have to celebrate the Packers’ victory. That spread of food looks beautiful 🙂

  5. I also was for the same team as Ellen. 🙂 Love the food you prepared, actually during the Superbowl it is always nice to spend it with family or friends who are fans too. The excitement plus the delicious grub are my favorite.

  6. Haha, I thought of you when I saw that Pug Dorrito commercial. By the second Dorritos commercial I was craving some delicious chips.

    I was cheering for neither of the teams as I am still bitter about the Packers beating my Bears. 🙁
