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. i saw bethenny frankel (love her!) on Ellen last week and she said the best superbowl meal for hosting friends was make-your-own tacos!!! good job : )

    i’m bummed brady isn’t playing too, but was wicked excited when i hear he and bellichick won their awards!!

  2. We are having a “Super Bowl Feast” as my eldest daughter likes to call it… but mostly I just made a bunch of food that I can re-heat and serve again tomorrow night at Bunco, when the REAL games begin 😉

  3. Things are pretty Super-Bowl crazy here in Wisconsin (Go Pack Go!), but honestly I was MORE excited for the Puppy Bowl!! Two straight hours of watching puppies play with one another? Now that’s must-see TV for me!

  4. haha im with ya! im cheering for the same team as ELLEN!!! especially considering she totally won oprah’s network from her by betting on the packers (rather than oprah’s very own chicago bears…).. 😉

    haha i laughed out LOUD when i was reading your entry and you had your food all laid out and THAT is what it took for you to “finally be excited for the super bowl”. hahaha love it.

  5. I’ll be cheering on the Packers… even though I really don’t care about either team this year. The Super Bowl’s really all about the food for me anyway (unless my team happens to be playing) 🙂

  6. I’m rooting for the Packers, but I really don’t care at all. My husband and I decided to skip parties this year- it’s just not worth being tired tomorrow since we both don’t care that much (this year- if the Pats were in it, different story). I’m hoping to finish one of my books and catch up on blogs while watching it haha.

  7. Ha! That’ s hilarious. I was trying to find out if it were Superbowl Sunday today, earlier. It really is all about the food.
    Jess 😀

  8. This is the first Super Bowl in years where I don’t care about either team – I just don’t like Rothlisberger! I’m trying to put a dent in all of my accumulated homework! A little bummed to be missing out on parties, because I’m HUNGRY – but I suppose I’ll thank myself later, right?

    Oh, so I’m cheering for the Packer’s. As much as a Redkin’s fan can ever cheer for a non-Redskins team. =) Enjoy the game and the commercials!

  9. I love football but I am so not into the super bowl this year; I don’t know what it is. But I do know they are replaying the real housewives reunion tonight 😉

  10. I definitely didn’t care about the superbowl at all without the Pat’s. I’m just watching for the commercials and hoping to stay up for Glee!

  11. GO STEELERS!!! I’m doing 3 pushups per point the Packers score to release some anger, lol. So far, my arms are very sore 🙁 halftime blog readings helps though!
