Lucky Horseshoe

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.

I loved reading about everyone’s nicknames on this morning’s post. So funny! Some of them are really good! 😆

After I published the post, I realized that I never shared my funny/embarrassing nicknames, so here they are: Peter, Llama, Christine, and Tiner. Each of which has their own little story! (Just click on the link for the corresponding story.)


Mid-morning my stomach started to grumble, so I snacked on a piece of Ezekiel bread with hippy butter. It kept my stomach quiet until lunchtime. I’m surprised that the protein pancakes didn’t hold me over.



For lunch, I whipped up a salad with grilled tofu, avocado, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, red bell pepper, and carrots.


I am deeply in love with avocado.


I also ate a container of Brown Cow maple yogurt with lunch.



For a sweet treat, I enjoyed another piece of Ezekiel bread, but this time with hippy butter + caramel sauce. Mmm! I love this snack so much! 😀


Jack & Ginger Giveaway

Remember the giveaway that I hosted for a pair of “Mint Julep” earrings last summer? Well, my friend, Michelle, has offered to giveaway another one of her beautiful jewelry designs.

Michelle is giving away a necklace with a horseshoe charm. She will also add a gemstone of your color choice to the charm if you would like.


To enter: Leave a comment on this post about something (or someone) that is making you happy today. I’ll randomly pick a winner tomorrow morning. Good luck!


I’m heading to a Blogger Bash at Healthworks later this afternoon. It sounds like it’s going to be SWEET! I seriously cannot wait! :mrgreen:

See ya! 😎



  1. My boss is getting me an iPad. I work in higher education where budgets are tight, but we know we need to be better versed in using new technology. He’s trusting and has been trusting me to lead the way for our office, so I’m incredibly happy to work where I do and how I do. I love my job!!

  2. I have been reunited with my first boyfriend I had 20 yrs ago….the love of my life….I am still in love with him and feel so happy & lucky to have him in my life again!

  3. My boyfriend makes me so happy this morning-we’re done at school for the year and just lounging around this morning was great.

  4. Hopefully I’m not too late, but Thursday (and every day) my dogs make me happy, they walk me out to my front door to say goodbye in the morning before I walk to work and then welcome me back home again at night, so excited to see me and go out for our nightly walks!

  5. what’s making me happy today is seeing God at work when i think He’s totally forgotten me…whether it’s in the voicemail of my best friend or sitting on my front porch swing just watching nature at its finest 😉

  6. That necklace is gorgeous. I’d love to enter to win it, especially since I have a longstanding thing with horseshoes – my grandmother has always teased me that I was so lucky that I must have been born with a horseshoe in my nose.

    I know it sounds silly, but I picked up an Eli Manning biography to read today. Football makes me very ridiculously genuinely happy, and it’s offseason, so I welcomed the topic any way I can get it!
