Life Is Good

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.

Yay! Tonight’s barbeque was a huge success! And I love our friends!

The evening started with conversation around the table outside on our back porch. While we chatted, we munched on chips and salsa. I also sipped on an Arnold Palmer. (After last night, there were no John Dalys for me!)

On the dinner menu: grilled hamburgers, garlicky couscous, and salad.

My plate: hamburger + Annie’s Goddess Dressing for dipping and salad with balsamic vinegar.

Dessert (not surprisingly) was the highlight of the meal for me. I made S’mores on a Stick for our guests.

And our guests brought cupcakes from Sweet!! I was so psyched! Thanks, Dave and Marie!

I love summer”¦ and barbeques”¦ and cupcakes”¦ and puppies”¦ and good friends. I’m off to bed with a big smile on my face. Life is good.

Good night, guys!



  1. Yay! I’m so glad it was a success (and a fun night!) I’m DYING to make those s’mores on a stick.

    Also? I was literally just standing on School St. downtown staring down the Sweet there and didn’t have time to pop in! Now I’m really regretting that!

  2. S’mores on a stick? WHOA! Gotta give those a shot! 😀 Glad you had a blast – I’m such a fan of friends + BBQs in the summer too!

  3. I made those S’mores on a Stick this weekend after seeing them on Elizabeth’s blog. They were a HUGE hit at the bonfire/cookout I went to. I’ll be making them again soon!

  4. hello smores on a stick and super yummy looking cupcakes!

    and how cute is that picture of the pupcakes w/the cutie pup in the back trying to catch a glimpse! ADORABLE!

  5. By the way, I made one of your recipes yesterday and I’m going to blog about it today (I’ll link it back to your blog)… they were the oatmeal peanut butter cookies and they were delicious! Thanks for the idea!

  6. I’m glad you had such a fun, relaxing evening! I spent last year as a student in Cambridge, and never tried the cupcakes from Sweet. You’ve given me good reason to go back and visit!

  7. Looks like a great evening – who doesn’t love a summer BBQ?!? So glad you’re back to feeling mostly well & enjoying life! 🙂

  8. I shared the S’mores on a Stick recipe with a friend and she made them for another friends bridal shower…. AMAZING!!!!!

  9. Those cupcakes are awesome. I can’t wait to have my own kitchen again so I can bake!!!

    On a random note, I love your mason jar glass so much, I’ve been somewhat jealous. The other day, an empty jar was sitting near the drinking glasses and I almost used it (but remembered it was there to be returned to someone). I suggested switching out our glasses with mason jars when we move to my hubs and he loves the idea (since we have a rustic, country/farm kitchen style). Thanks for the idea!!
