Sunday Slacker

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.

Man, what a weekend! It was absolutely fabulous, but I am so exhausted from it! I need a vacation from that vacation! I’m feeling like a slacker tonight, so I’m just going to recap my Sunday eats and save the longer Vermont recap for another time. I don’t have it in me to do it the justice it deserves!


The bride and groom invited their guests for a casual brunch at the Edson Hill Manor this morning. I forgot my camera in the car, so I didn’t snap any pics of my breakfast. It was a delicious meal– everything had so much flavor to it. I swear that food in Vermont tastes better than what we normally eat in Boston!

At brunch, I ate raspberry jam and cream cheese-stuffed French toast, scallion scrambled eggs, watermelon, cantaloup, and a piece of banana bread. All if it was outstanding!

After brunch, Mal and I made a special pit-stop at the Stowe Farmers’ Market to stock up on my favorite Vermont-made relish.



I love Claire’s Sweet Pickle Relish! I’m pretty much obsessed with it!



While in Stowe, we stopped for a couple of iced coffees for the car road home. Mal also loaded-up on multiple beverages to rehydrate himself. Someone stayed up until almost 3 AM playing Beruit last night!


I added milk and a packet of sugar to my iced coffee.



Lunch was a special treat today: Kimball’s ice cream! :mrgreen: I ordered a “kiddie” size Coffee Oreo, which was humongous, but I didn’t have any trouble finishing it all! πŸ˜‰


As always, Kimball’s was PACKED this afternoon!


When we finally arrived home, I hit the gym for a serious sweat session.Β For my workout, I did 20 minutes of strength training (legs) followed by 20 minutes on the elliptical and 25 minutes walking on the treadmill. Boy, did I need that workout! I feel a million times better now!


I wanted to eat some of the relish that I purchased this morning, so I made a tuna salad with tomatoes and cucumbers mixed in. I was light and summery, but really filling and satisfying.


I’m off to search for something sweet and relax with my hubby on the couch.

Good night! πŸ˜€



  1. I made your corn and cheddar souffle today! It was DELICIOUS! Thank you for posting the awesome recipe and the step-by-step methodology, it was so helpful!

  2. Good for you for getting a workout in after a long car ride… road trips zonk me so sometimes its hard to find the motivation when I arrive, but of course I feel so much better once I do get one in!

  3. TINA!!! I WAS AT KIMBALL’S YESTERDAY!!!! I looked for myself in the picture you took. πŸ™‚ Husband and I went and grabbed some burgers and corn from their grill and a little dessert action. Glad you had fun!

  4. Sounds like you had a great vacation. I know when I came home from vacation I felt like i needed a vacation from my vacation too. Hope you can get some good rest before the week starts tomorrow!

  5. Glad you had a great weekend in Stowe. We are actually getting married just down the road from the Edson HIll Manor at the Stowehof. Get some rest!
