Reebok NYC

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’m on my way to New York City once again (and surprise, surprise it just started to rain. Was rain even in the forecast for today?! Wtf.) This time I’m visiting for a sweeeeeet Reebok event!

(Even though I’m only away from home for 1.5 days, it was still a little sad to say goodbye to Murph ”˜N’ Mal this morning. I’ll miss their adorable faces.)

Today, Reebok is opening their first U.S. Reebok Fit Hub Concept Store in NYC, so, to celebrate, they’re hosting a special WOD”¦ with”¦ are you ready for this? The Fittest Man and Woman on Earth! Yep, that’s right, later today, I will be working out along side Annie Thorisdottir and Rich Froning! No big deal. Actually, I might die of excitement. 


A HUGE thank you to Reebok and Fitfluential for the invite. I am psyched! If you’re on Twitter, check out the hashtag #ReebokNYC for updates.

Ok, back to the food (since I brought a ton of it for a 5-hour bus ride). With all of my new dietary changes, I figured I should pack breakfast, lunch, and a couple of snacks to bring with me since it might be difficult to find good eats on the road. Check out this sack of goodies!

Here’s what I packed:


Two Paleo Zucchini Almond Butter Muffins with sunflower butter and a banana.

I ate the muffins like this:

Why didn’t I think of this sooner? It’s so much easier than trying to spread nut butter on a muffin!

Leftover sautéed kale and sliced zucchini with salt, pepper, and garlic powder from last night’s dinner and sliced deli turkey.

Almond clusters and a plum. (We’ll see about those almond clusters. My colon wasn’t a fan of the almonds I ate the other day.)

All together:

Last night’s dinner was random, but still satisfying and delicious. The food situation in our kitchen was pretty pathetic, so I made do with what we had on hand. On the menu: canned tuna mixed with avocado and truffle salt and sautéed kale and sliced zucchini with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

After dinner, while packing for my trips to NYC and Oregon, I snacked on a bunch of cherries.

Question of the Day

Have you ever visited New York City? What’s your favorite thing about it?

P.S. Be sure to enter my giveaway to win two tickets to a Boston Harbor Cruise!



  1. I need to try those muffins, look tasty! Hope you are feeling better. I have Celiac disease so I have to follow a similar diet.

  2. I’ve been to NYC three times. The best time was when I was a kid (7) because it was just awe inspiring then – I loved going to the top of the Statue of Liberty 🙂

  3. I am actually FROM New York City, but have been living elsewhere for the past 14 years. When I go “home”, I always stop by Lincoln Center…either to go to a performance, or just hang by the fountain.

  4. I’ve been lucky enough to visit NYC several times – I live in New Zealand, so it’s quite a hefty trek. My favourite thing is what a great city it is for walking. You can set off and explore and see a million different things in a day.

  5. I love that you’re basically going paleo. I just started, too. And, I love your blog so it’s so nice to see paleo meal ideas and read about what you’re up too at the same time. Have fun in NYC! I’ve been, but when I was very young so I don’t remember much but being on a ferry. 🙂

  6. My friend told me about your blog but I hadn’t read it until today. And go figure…We were both at Reebok 5th Ave today!! It was Soooo awesome to meet Annie, Chris, and Rich!!! BTW-I like your blog and will continue to follow you!!!

  7. I’ve only been to NYC once when I was 11. We were visiting my aunt and uncle who live near the city and went to the city for exactly 1 day. I can’t wait to go back one day though – makes me jealous!

  8. Muffin smooshed in nut butter. Brilliant. And somehow it never occurred to me to put some nut butter in a tupperware as transportation. I sometimes find myself wanting to bring nut butter with me while traveling, but I’m always of the mindset that I don’t want to bring the entire jar of it with me. HELLO, Julia, put some in tupperware. Duh. Thanks for the idea, haha.

  9. That muffin-peanut butter eating technique is genius! GENIUS! It’s number 1 on my to do tomorrow morning! 🙂
