Snap Happy

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.

My book publicist requested high-res shots of me in my kitchen, so here’s what I came up with this afternoon:

Heeeyyyyyyy, guys! 😉

Her request was sort of last-minute, so I had Mal snap a whole bunch of options. Hopefully, one will work!

After the mini photo-shoot, it was time to make dinner. Both of us were starving, so Mal and I teamed up to throw together a quick meal. While we cooked, we got a little snap happy in the kitchen!

Murphy also received a great ”˜pug massage’ from Dad.

Oh, yes.

That’s the spot.

You’ve really got it now.

I am pug putty in your hands.

While we cooked, I munched on some leftover homefries.

For dinner, we made baked chicken breasts with Herb & Garlic Marinade, roasted broccoli with Garlic Gold, and rice pilaf, which is Mal’s most favorite dinner ever. I like it a lot too, but, if I had my choice, I’d eat French bread with olive oil and stinky cheese every night.

After dinner, I satisfied my sweet tooth with about a million handfuls of chocolate chips straight from the bag that I keep in our refrigerator. Mmm!

Time for The Bachelor! I love me some crazy chicks!!! 😆




  1. Tina! I totally think you and Mal should do the accent Vlog!! On another note, since we are getting slammed this winter here in Boston (hello another storm Tomorrow and Wednesday!), maybe we should arrange a local blogger meet-up?? Something, anything to keep our minds off of this miserable snow!

  2. Awwwww Love Murphy love pics! SO cute!

    I have not watched the bachelor at all, I dont get into that show, I like the housewives reality shows ; )

    Oh I could so eat chocolate chips like they are going out of style, sooooooo good!

  3. Love the photos! Murphy is so adorable! I am addicted to the Bachelor. I seriously cannot stand Michelle! She is crazy! Who wakes up with a black eye?!

  4. I’m loving The Bachelor this season too. I didn’t think it would be as good since Brad is on round two, but it’s just as fun and trashy as usual!

  5. I am SO glad to know you are watching the Bachelor too! I think this season is so entertaining. Michelle is SO crazy. Emily is so perfect and sweet and the rest of the girls are basically cry babies. Ok, kidding on that one, but there is alot of crying…

  6. I so hope you send the pug smooch photo to your publicist — you never know, maybe it’ll make it to the inside jacket or something!

    We call the massage time “dog spa.” He only likes my husband to dog spa him, not me. Dogs are weird.

    1. Just had to comment on this. Our dog usually gets his nails clipped, ears cleaned etc- and then we give him a good old massage… we call it “puppy maintnence” at our house (even though he’s nine)- but he too only wants solid puppy lovin from my boyfriend. The love from me has a time and place apparently and maintnence time is not it. HA!

  7. So random, but do you know which store Mal’s zipup is from? I’d love to pick that up as a gift for someone!
