Slow and Sleepy

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.

Goooooood morning! 🙂

Well, it was another slow, sleepy morning for Murphy and me today. I slept through my 4:29 writing alarm and he spent an extra 45 minutes laying in our bed. (This dog is SO spoiled.) I guess we really needed the sleep, right? Maybe some writing will happen tomorrow.



Awesome 3-Minute Cookie this morning! I love these things! :mrgreen:


I doubled the recipe for a more hearty meal.

In the mix:

  • 1/4 cup MixMyGranola
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 liquid egg whites
  • 1.5 tbsp Vega Smoothie Infusion
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

I spread about 1/2 tbsp of peanut butter on top. So delish! 😀


We were out of iced coffee this morning (the horror!), so I made a pot of the hot stuff. I added a splash of vanilla soy milk to my mug.

Keep Calm Giveaway

Remember the post about my “Keep Calm and Love Pugs” print? Well, the artist, Barb, contacted me the other day to see if I wanted to host a giveaway on my blog and to let me know that she created a special print for me! :mrgreen:


How adorable is her “Keep Calm and Love Carrots and Cake” print?!? I’m in love!

Barb has offered to giveaway one of her 8×10 archival prints from her website. Basically, you can choose any of her “Keep Calm” prints!

To Enter: Visit Barb’s site and leave a comment about which print you would pick. I’ll randomly pick a winner tonight.

Good luck! 😀



  1. Keep Calm and Love Labs! I have a beautiful soon to be 2 yr old black lab named Lena and i love love love her!

  2. CUPCAKES! I have a bit of an obsession with cupcakes. My friends all know to expect cupcakes from me for birthdays and holidays.

  3. I don’t know if I can chose! I would pick, Keep Calm and Love Labs-my lab will be two in May.
    I also love the keep calm and love running, keep calm and be in love, and keep calm and drink coffee!

  4. I really love all of them, but I would have to say the Keep Calm and Love Pugs is my favorite. I have an 8 year old lady, Charlotte, that has moved with me from CT to TX, and now finally to California. To say Charlotte is my best friend is under statement. She has been with me through thick and thin, and never ceases to bring joy to my life. She loves everyone, and everything, and constantly reminds me that the best things in life, like sleeping in the sun, leisurely walks on the beach, good food, and lots of love, are indeed free.
    I’ll have to send a picture sometime so you can show her to Murphy!

  5. I’m trying to decide between “Keep Calm and Drink Wine” for me and the hubby or “Keep Calm and Love Labs” for my parents who breed them!

  6. I love “keep calm and drink wine”. I just came back from a semester in Italy and have a new love and devotion to wine 🙂

  7. I love “Keep Calm and Drink Coffee”!! That is by far what I try and do everyday!!! I love your blog and enjoy reading it everyday! Keep up the awesome work!

  8. how cool! it’d be a tough decision between ‘keep calm and drink wine’ or ‘keep calm and drink coffee.’ i like them both so much : )
