Lunch Scored High

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.

When I walked into my 12:00 meeting this afternoon, a delicious surprise was waiting: a healthy lunch spread from Whole Foods! :mrgreen:

There was a wonderful variety of nutritious foods: salad greens, raw veggies, bean and edamame salads, noodles, meats, cheeses, and whole grain bread. I was impressed! The folks at NuVal know how to eat!


My plate:


The big slab that looks like butter is actually cheddar cheese. I guess it didn’t photograph well! πŸ˜•

To drink, I had a small glass of blood orange-flavored Italian Soda. So good!


And, of course, no meal is complete without a sweet treat. I dug right into the Cherries & Almond in Dark Chocolate bar. I wasn’t shy about it! πŸ˜‰




The second half of “lunch” was an apple and a Renew Glo Bar, which is easily my favorite flavor! I love the chewiness and chia seeds!


If you’re curious about my new space at NuVal… here it is! My workspace is part of a foursome of cubicles in the front of the office.


I think the only thing missing from my desk is a photo of Murphy! πŸ˜‰

Not sure what’s on the agenda for my Friday night (besides a glass of wine)!

Happy weekend, bloggies!



  1. glad to see a post about your workspace, which is very clean (especially compared to mine!) I really like the images on your calendar, too. very cute!

  2. What a great spread! I love it when companies actually provide ‘healthy’ options versus just the lazy pizza and subs. Was that edamame succotash? If so, I love that dish! Nice new work space πŸ™‚

  3. Mmmmm love blood orange soda! That was my favorite drink in Italy, can you imagine..they served it in the vending machines on the college campus we worked at! They also had espresso vending machines but that’s another story. πŸ™‚ That lunch looks incredible as well, I want to find an office to work at that eats that for lunch. πŸ˜‰ yum yum yum!

  4. What a great lunch!! Certainly beats my work’s foods. When we have meetings they order in pizza – definitely a step down from WFs πŸ˜‰

  5. I can’t even imagine how you must feel knowing that you have created your very own job yourself….you must be so glad you started your blog,and look how it has got you into a new field of social media,marketing,business,promoting all kids of companies and products.
    Could you ever have imagined the way it would all turn out?
    Can’t wait to read how that experience feels-wow!

  6. Totally jealous that you get to work for a company that orders Whole Foods for lunches- I typically get BBQ at my job. haha

    Have a lovely weekend Tina!

  7. i love that XOXO chocolate as well, esp the raspberry kind. but, unfort, when i checked the ingredients i noticed that cocoa liquer was listed and no actual, real cocoa. sadness.
