Peanut Butter Problem

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.

It’s probably not a surprise that I love peanut butter. But, I am starting to think that I might have a bit of peanut butter “problem.” Well, it’s actually more of a nut butter problem, but peanut butter is my favorite… closely followed by Barney Butter, of course. 😉

There’s just something so satisfying about peanut butter. I literally crave it when I wake up in the morning. It’s obviously delicious and it keeps me full for hours, so it’s not a bad option, right? Plus, there are way worse “problems” to have! Peanut butter is just an amazing food to me.

Ok, enough gushing about peanut butter and onto breakfast! (I’m so weird sometimes!)


After Body Pump, I was starving for breakfast. Even though I ate a snack before class, I still wanted to eat a big breakfast.


Banana oats with peanut butter (my favorite breakfast) was an easy decision.


In the mix:


I also had an iced coffee + chocolate protein powder + vanilla soy milk beverage with breakfast.



Before Body Pump, I snacked on a piece of whole wheat bread with peanut butter. I was actually reading in Health magazine (March 2010) the other day that this combo of ingredients is great for hunger control.

“… [P]eanuts contain an amino acid called methionine, and wheat bread has one called lysine– as a combo these compounds make a complete protein that’s especially filling.”

Interesting, right? No wonder this is one of my go-to snacks! 😉


After a little work, I’m heading to a beer tasting with Mal, Dave, and Marie. A couple of bloggers will be there too!

See ya! 😎



  1. Until I started reading a lot of blogs, I thought my love affair with PB was not normal. I am so glad to find that others love it as much as I do. I haven’t ventured past almond butter in the world of nut butters, partially because I’m so happy with just about every flavor of PB&Co peanut butters they satisfy every tastebud! For something a little cheaper though, I’ve found that the TJ’s PB is pretty good too. Oh, now I want a big heaping spoonful of PB!!

  2. That’s very interesting about the whole wheat bread + peanut butter! I usually have whole wheat toast in the morning with cereal, and when I have peanut butter on the toast, I’m rarely hungry before 1 p.m. at work!

  3. This looks soo good! I want to make it tomorrow morning, but I’m a little confused. Do I microwave the first 6 ingredients together and then top it with peanut butter, or do I just microwave the oatmeal, oat bran, and water, and THEN top with the remaining ingredients?
