Sunday Eats

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots β€˜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.

Wow-wee! What a weekend! I sort of wish that I could relive the whole thing. It was such a blast from beginning to end! :mrgreen:


This morning, Mal and I slept in until about 8:30 and then headed downstairs to grab breakfast at the hotel restaurant.

To be honest, I didn’t have high expectations for breakfast after reading the menu, but I was pleasantly surprised when my meal was served. I ordered the fried egg sandwich, which came with homefries on the side.


The egg sandwich was served with bacon, roasted tomato, and plenty of cheddar cheese. The sandwich was massive, so I ended up removing the bacon and one of the eggs (there were 2!), but, somehow, I still managed to eat practically all of it! It was THAT good– especially the greasy, grilled sourdough bread with loads of cheese. πŸ˜‰



Breakfast held me over for hours and hours, so when lunchtime rolled around, I just made myself a small snack: two pieces of toasted Carrots Raisin Manna Bread with butter smeared on top.


When the Manna Bread folks asked me to sample some of their breads, I jumped at the chance. They had some many delicious-sounding varities: Carrots Raisin, Banana Walnut Hemp, Fig Fennel Flax, and Cinnamon Date. Mmm! Plus, the website describes their breads as “moist, delicious, cake-like…and simply heavenly!” Um, yes, I would like to try some Manna Bread!

The Carrot Raisin Manna Bread tasted just like a carrot raisin muffin– same texture, consistency, flavor. It was basically muffin bread. Delish!



After my indulgent weekend (week, month?), I kept dinner light with a big salad, topped with canned salmon and balsamic vinegar.


Raw veggies never tasted so good!


For dessert, I enjoyed a few caramels from the candy bowl.


It’s Sunday Movie Night, so Mal and I have plans to get into our PJ’s, chill on the couch, and watch our newest Netflix DVD: The Men Who Stare at Goats. Sounds like an interesting movie, right?!? (I think it might be time for me to take over our Netflix queue.)


Enjoy the last few hours of your weekend! Back to the grind tomorrow!

Good night!



  1. That breakfast does look good πŸ™‚ Sunday nights are always a bit more depressing when you know you had a great weekend! Good thing you have movie night!

  2. Hahah! I went and saw that movie in theatres for some reason… it was so hilariously ridiculous stupid! The whole thing’s just one huge acid trip, lol.

  3. That manna bread looks sooo delicious – I’ve never seen it before! I looked on their site and unfortunately you can only order the bread in a pack of 8 loafs. And as much as I love my carbs, I don’t think my freezer can handle 7 loafs of bread, haha. I’ll have to stay on the lookout for it around here.

  4. That Manna bread sounds pretty good, especially the Cinnamon Date.
    Glad to know you had a great weekend. πŸ™‚

  5. Mmm that breakfast sandwich looks awesome. I almost thought that was pork roll on there! Do people outside of the Philly area even eat that!? Let us know how the movie was!

  6. mmm manna bread sounds amazing! i wasn’t really crazy about that movie – i saw it in the theater but maybe i was just not in the proper frame of mind. if you do take over the queue, add my movie “saving face” to the list! i’m not sure it’s mal’s cup of tea, but you would probably like it.

  7. I have wanted to try the manna bread since reading your post, but have no idea where to find it. I’m in the boston area too, where do you get it? I haven’t had a chance to look in whole foods yet, but I know for sure trader joe’s and stop&shop don’t have it.

  8. Several with the factors associated with this blog publish are generally advantageous nonetheless had me personally wanting to understand, did they seriously imply that? 1 point I have acquired to say is your writing experience are very good and I’ll be returning back for any brand-new weblog publish you arrive up with, you might probably possess a brand-new supporter. I guide marked your weblog for reference.
