Roast Beef Sandwiches with Parsley Butter & My Favorite Piece of Exercise Equipment

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.

Most random post title ever? I think so.


One of the best parts about meal planning as a couple is trying recipes that I would never have picked otherwise. For example, yesterday, Mal found a recipe for Roast Beef Cocktail Sandwiches with Parsley Butter, which, initially, didn’t sound that appetizing to me, but ended up turning into a fabulous and easy meal. Good eye, Mal!


Last night, Mal was in charge of making the sandwiches.




And I was in charge of making the salads.


(That random photo of Mal and me on the refrigerator is from our friends’ wedding this past June. We tried to reenact our prom photos from 1998. I know, we’re so cool.)


Mal added a bunch of minced garlic to the parley butter for some added flavor. He said it was kind of bland without it.


The salads included arugula, tomato, carrot, cucumber, blue cheese crumbles, and balsamic vinegar. I think these are the first vegetables I’ve eaten in days.



After dinner, I spent the rest of the evening foam rolling the crap out of my tight muscles. Apparently, that twenty-miler really kicked my butt! My legs actually feel quite a bit better this morning. They’re still sore, but not nearly as tight.


I always used to think my Bosu was the best piece of exercise equipment I’ve ever bought because it’s so versatile, but I use my foam roller so much more. And I have a feeling I’m going to use it even more in the next few weeks.

Question of the Day

What’s the best piece of exercise equipment you’ve ever bought?



  1. I love foam rolling! BUT here in Australia they cost $90!!! (I think you guys pay around $10?!) So I just stick to using the one in my gym. It’s awesome for rolling out the pain in my neck and shoulders I get from sitting at a computer all day.

  2. LOVE the foam roller! An NECESSARY for anyone who is a fitness enthusiast AND anyone who sits all day or does repetitive movement with profession….Idea: I have seen many people use a PVC pipe. To soften it up, rubber band a rag or old sheet tightly around it (cut it to about right size). This has to be cheaper than 90$ in Australia!
