Lucky Horseshoe

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜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! πŸ˜†

After I published the post, I realized that I never shared my funny/embarrassing nicknames, so here they are:Β 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! πŸ˜€


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:
