Sea Biscuit Cafe

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 am head over heels in love with CHARLESTON! Erica and Josh have done a wonderful job showing-off their city!

I decided to sleep in this morning instead of running on the beach with Kath and Erica. I sort of felt like a bum not going with them, but I really needed the extra sleep. Being a tourist is tough work!

After a slow start this morning, Mal and I headed downstairs where we were greeted by a fresh pot of coffee.


I added non-fat milk and cinnamon to my mug. So good!


The group sipped coffee and relaxed for a little while before heading to brunch at the Sea Biscuit Cafe near Isle of Palms beach.

KERF, Itzy’s Kitchen, and Carrots ‘N’ Cake…


The group at brunch…


I loved the funky decor inside of the cafe.


I started brunch with iced coffee with cream and a half packet of Sugar in the Raw.

I ordered the “small” fruit plate, which ended up being much larger than expected. I ended up sharing it with Mal and Kath.


I also ordered an egg and biscuit sandwich, which was delicious and totally satisfying. I forgot how much I loved biscuits!

I took a couple of shots of the fruit salad because I was so impressed by it. It was incredibly fresh and had so many different types of fruit in it. It was easily one of the best fruit salads I have ever eaten.


After brunch, we walked to the nearby beach and had another blogger photo shoot.

M&T at IOP…

(Man, I need a tan!)

Blogger husband responsibilities…


Action shot!




We’re about 2 hours away from Charlotte. We plan to grab at quick lunch and head to the airport for our flight back to Boston. Mal and I have a “talk” planned for our flight home. I’m sure you can guess what it’s about!

See ya from the Northeast!



  1. So nice to have you guys here! Happy Anniversary!!!!!!! Josh and I forgot to tel you this morning. Have a safe flight home. Again, let us know if there is anything you guys need

  2. Gorgeous fruit salad – and yes, I agree that biscuits are amazing. Cooking Light has an awesome recipe for sweet potato biscuits, which I highly recommend.

    Have you tried brewing coffee with ground cinnamon mixed right into the grounds? AWESOME.

    Keep havin’ fun!

  3. Happy Anniversary! I think it’s going to be baby talk…yay!!!! You guys would have the cutest little babies!!

  4. Wow, a moving talk? I really, really can’t wait until the hubby and I can talk moving…right now we’re working on finishing our graduate degrees, so no moves for us.

  5. Your posts are making me want to move to Charleston! Everyone just seems so much friendlier there and based on pictures (not that you can really tell with pictures? lol), even the air seems cleaner. haha I always thought myself a NYC type of girl, but I’m beginning to have my doubts. I just like it so much more when people are NICE!

  6. The fruit salad is making me drool! You and Mal just bought a house so I don’t think you’d move just yet…I think being around the bulldog made you guys decide to finally get a pug. You’re going to talk about puppies!

  7. Oh yeah – DUH! I completely forgot you just bought a house! Hmmmm…I think the talk about puppies is a perfect guess from Melissa! YIPPEE! That’s so exciting!

  8. Well, you just have a contract on the house, right? Not too late to back out… 😉 My next guess is pug talk!

  9. I hope it’s NOT baby talk. I’m glad you slept in this morning… getting up on a Sunday to go for a run is pretty ridiculous in my book. Weekends are supposed to be for relaxation esp. when you work a 9 to 5.

  10. I have to say, I love Charleston, but the rest of SC….well, not that great. If I were to return south I would definitely go back to NC, though even it has its problems. I love the south, but as a general rule there are a lot of issues in those states – lack of funding for education, extremely conservative politics, etc.

  11. Re: Babies!

    We are NOT having a baby any time soon! It’ll be a good 10 years before we start a family… well, we’ll have a pug long before then. 🙂

  12. Haha all the baby talk responses seem so random to me. Why in the world would y’all decide to discuss having a baby on a flight home from a weekend trip?? Of course, it’s got to be about moving to Charleston! Duh! 🙂

  13. Tina. Your pictures look so amazing! I just recently started reading your blog and i absolutely adore reading what you have to say! i actually took the time to read past posts so i could play catchup! I hope you have a safe flight home. and hopefully your “talk” goes good! eek. keep us updated!

  14. Glad you had such a great time. I love Erica, she is the best! Glad you got to meet up! The fruit looks fabulous. Have a safe trip back! And fill us in on this talk soon:)

  15. Haha – I love the blogger husband responsibilities – that’s too funny.

    And WOW – that fruit salad is so beautiful I don’t know if I would’ve been able to eat it!

    Looks like you guys had a blast together, I’m so glad 🙂

  16. Hi – first time post, long time reader. What’s the “talk” about???? Is their a move to the south in the future? Sorry, I’m nosey!

  17. Charleston is a great place. It has so much to offer. Glad you had a great time here! If/when you get the chance to visit again, I’d love to meet you guys for a cuppa coffee or a tasty dish! 🙂 (I know, this is only 2 1/2 years after you posted this!)
