Muffin Dreams

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 had some strange dreams last night! Unfortunately, now that I am awake, I can’t remember them at all, but I’m pretty sure muffins were involved somehow. I woke up thinking about and craving Heather’s Barney Butter/Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Olive Oil Muffins. Before I even got into the shower, I sunk my teeth into one of those bad boys! I just took a bite, and crumbled the rest on top of my oats. :mrgreen:

In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup dry oats
  • 1/4 cup wheat berries
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2/3 of a Hangry Pants muffin, crumbled
  • 1 scoop of Barney Butter
Now don’t those sound like DELICIOUS oats!?! 😉

Lunch and Snack Preview

Making my lunch last night made my morning totally stress-free. When I don’t make my lunch ahead of time, it’s a mad dash around my kitchen grabbing random items of food. Sometimes a healthy lunch results; sometimes it doesn’t!

Today’s lunch and afternoon snack:

  • Spinach salad with grape tomatoes, snap peas, cornichons (French pickles that Mal has me obsessed with!), and fresh Parmsean sprinkled on top
  • Vanilla-flavored soy yogurt with TJ’s high-fiber “twig cereal
  • A dried fig (an amazing new discovery!)
  • ZBar
  • 2 chocolate kisses
