Hi, 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.

Fit + Fueled

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.
Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

Just because the holiday season is over, that doesn’t mean that all treats have to be put away, especially those macro-friendly gluten-free desserts (my favorite!). Starting the new year can (and should!) include treats that are also good for you!

I get a ton of requests for macro-friendly gluten-free recipes, so that’s what I’ve got for you today – starting with one of my favorites: desserts! From cookies to truffles to cookie bowls, there’s a mix of recipes to keep your dessert game exciting and delicious this year!


  • Anytime Mug Cake – Made from real, wholesome ingredients, this Mug Cake is guaranteed to become a favorites. Easy to assemble and perfectly portioned, this mini cake is a must-try when a sweet craving strikes! And, of course, it’ll fit into your macros! 
  • Double Chocolate Chunk Walnut Cookies – These chewy Double Chocolate Chunk Walnut Cookies are made with chunks of chocolate and walnut. Made without butter, they taste too good to be true, thanks to a special secret (!) ingredient! 
  • Warm Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowl – This Warm Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowl is incredible. I’ve made it so many times over the years, and I still can’t get enough of it. It’s gluten free, good for you, and won’t break your macros! 
  • No Bake Almond Joy Cookies – These No Bake Almond Joy Cookies are made with just 8 ingredients. They’re also vegan and gluten-free. Whip up a batch and store in the fridge until you’re ready to enjoy. My whole family loves these cookies! 


  • Easy and Healthy Mocha Protein Balls – This recipe calls for just 5 ingredients. You can just toss them in your food processor or mix by hand. They’ll need a little time in the refrigerator to harden up, but, other than that, these mocha energy balls come together in no time! 
  • Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Protein Truffles – These truffles are so easy to make, and I bet you have all of the ingredients in your pantry right now. They’re so easy to make and insanely delicious! I hope you love these as much as we do. They’re a regular treat in our house. 
  • Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies – These cookies are the perfect treat when you also want to stay on track with your goals. They also make a great make-ahead (meal prep) breakfast option. I love them as a pre-or post-workout snack!
  • Secret Ingredient Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies – These cookies are chocolatey, rich, not overly sweet, and a tad undercooked. They’re basically a fudge-y brownie. And, bonus, they have a secret (healthy) ingredient no one will guess! Even kids love this recipe!
