Seriously Delicious

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 only lunchtime, but I’ve already enjoyed a seriously delicious day of eats.

I woke up bright and early for my Lose the Dough check-in and a workout at Healthworks. I got my stats taken and then ran 3.5 miles on the treadmill. (Post coming soon!)

After a quick shower, I met Mal, Beth, and Corey for breakfast at Mike & Patty’s.


Mike & Patty’s is one of my favorite places for breakfast, so, of course, we needed to bring our out-of-town guests there to enjoy it themselves.


I knew exactly what I wanted for breakfast: Grilled Banana Sandwich. Ever since the HLS last summer, I’ve been obsessed with it!


Holy, holy, holy yum! :mrgreen:


The Grilled Banana Sandwich was made with loads of honey cinnamon butter and sliced banana on thick slices of country white/sourdough bread.


Omg. Heaven.



I also drank an iced coffee with soy milk and cinnamon from Starbucks. (I grabbed it after my workout.)


After breakfast, we visited Harvard Square, walked around, and explored Harvard Yard.


Of course, we said ‘hello’ to John.


On our way back to our Southie, we took a pit-stop at Flour for some goodies.


How adorable is this quote!?!


And, how delicious do these baked goods look!?!


I could not decide what I to order from Flour. I pretty much wanted one of everything!


I ended up going with the Raspberry-Orange Coconut muffin. It just sounded too good to pass up!

  1. The chocolate macaroons at Flours are the best I have ever had – I dream about them. You definitely supported Joanne Chang this weekend!

  3. OMG that grilled banana sandwich looks divine! I know you don’t always WANT to know.. and sometimes NEED to splurge… but please tell me it comes in low cat/fat too?! LOL Any idea on the calorie, fat and fiber content? I’m sure I can create this in a low fat and calorie version… just have to figure out the right ingredients!

    Looks great!

  4. I love Mike & Patty’s and feel crazy lucky that it’s around the corner from the BCAE. I love the torta breakfast sandwich – eggs and refritos mean plenty of protein!

  5. I am dying over that banana sandwich and I don’t even care for bananas! How amazing. I will definitely check that place out the next time I am in Boston!

  6. All these cute little cafes and bakeries that you visit really make me want to visit Boston! I only went once and totally missed all these cute places.

  7. oh my gosh Tina! That banana sammy looks so so good! Whenever I finally make it up to Boston to visit my sister, I’m going to stop by and have breakfast there with you 🙂 Hope you have a great afternoon

  8. AHHHHHHH I have been dreaming about Flour ever since I stepped foot there in August during HLS. I got the granola bar (not just any old granola bar) and I am counting down the days/months until I can go in and get it again. You’re making my sweet tooth ache!!

  9. Thank you for being such a wonderful foodie role model. Your balance of treats and everyday foods is, to me, the real definition of “healthy”, and your posts brighten my day 🙂

  10. That sandwich looks delish!!! ( I’m not a banana person, but I could always improvise), are all these places you are going to organic?!? Good luck with lose the dough today:) I know you”ll do awesome.

  11. I absolutely love Flour Bakery!! The Cracklin’ is soooo yummy: brioche, honey, almonds and orange marmalade. My roommates brought me home the last bite of hers and it was spectacular!!

  12. How appropriate – you met Joanne Chang yesterday and went to her bakery today. I went to Flour on Saturday. Looks like it was a bit quieter there today. There was no way I could snap decent photos – the place was packed.
    Btw, ever since the first time you blogged about Mike & Patty’s, I’ve been dying to go there after my long run on the weekend. I think this Sunday may be the day. I’d get the exact same thing. Looks heavenly!!
