Not A Single Fruit

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.

Good morning! It’s good to be home! I missed my guys so much!

I’m off to a super early dentist appointment this morning, so I prepared most of this post last night on the flight home to Beantown.

We didn’t have a single fruit (or veggie!) in the whole house for breakfast, so I made due with what we had. I ended up toasting two Van’s Waffles and smearing peanut butter and jam on top. Not a horrible breakfast.



I’m sure my morning will included coffee at some point too.

I love Murphy

Mal sent me these photos of Murphy over the weekend, and I just had to share because they’re such polar opposites.

Adorable, could-be-a-model pug:


Funny-looking, old man pug:

Don’t forget about Eggland’s Best Holiday Recipe Contest. I’ve already received some delicious submissions and all of the recipes will be featured on the Eggland’s Best website. Cool!

Pumpkins For Pink E-Book

Check out Megan’s Pumpkins For Pink E-Book, which raises money for the fight against breast cancer. I contributed my Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf recipe to it.

Question of the Day

What’s your favorite holiday?

Mine is probably Thanksgiving! Not surprising, right? 😉 Of course, I love the food, but I also love being with family and seeing friends at our mini-reunion in our hometown each year.

P.S. Remember my recent trip and secret meeting New York City? Well, some really good news came out of it!!! Details coming soon! :mrgreen:



  1. My favorite holiday is a tie between Thanksgiving and Christmas. They are both so filled with family time and good food! Those pictures are so cute! I have a pug also. His name is Tank. How old is Murphy?

  2. I love the contrast in the MP pics. He’s adorable and looks like he loves to ham it up for the camera 🙂

    I had no fruit in the house for a couple of days and had to make due on frozen bananas in Green Monsters. I went nuts.

  3. My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. Although if I am being honest I really only like Thanksgiving every OTHER year when I get to spend it with my family and away from the in-laws! haha!

    Love your blog, Tina…I am addicted! 🙂

  4. Great pictures of Murphy! I love getting pictures of my dogs when I am away from them, it’s the best!
    My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, I just love the joy of coming together without it being about presents, or anything else, just about family 🙂

  5. I know that no one likes a guesser on Christmas morning… but do you have a book deal? Either way, I can’t wait to hear the news!
