The Smith NYC

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.

I love waking up in New York City. Can I just move here already?

Actually, I don’t think Mal and Murphy would be too happy if I moved NYC. (Please see Murphy’s pissed off face for their likely reaction).


Last night, I had dinner with Theodora, Ashley, Dori and Ashley’s friend Jessie at the new The Smith in midtown.

The Smith is a casual American Brasserie with menus that feature a selection of bistro dishes, including fried calamari, mussels, mac & cheese, steak, and hand cut fries. The menu was pretty awesome””lots of comfort food, and I wanted to try almost everything on it. Oh, and the dessert menu included classic Birthday Cake””yellow cake with fudge frosting and vanilla ice cream. Um, yea. I already want to go back.

Naturally, the evening started with a round of drinks. After sitting on a train all day and semi-stressing about appearing on national television, I needed a glass of wine.

To start, the table shared an order of Hot Potato Chips with blue cheese fondue, which were incredibly addicting. I only planned to eat a few, but after having a taste, I was scooping up the cheese at the bottom of the bowl. Holy yum.

For my entrée, I ordered the Roasted Tomato Soup with a side of Brussels sprouts. Before we were seated, Dori mentioned that the Roasted Tomato Soup was really delicious. As soon as she said this, the thought of tomato soup was in my head, and I knew exactly what I wanted to order for dinner. It was as delicious as expected””thick, creamy, and loaded with melted cheese and a few croutons. The Brussels sprouts were great too. They were covered in butter/oil and sea salt, so, of course, they were flavorful and delicious.

For breakfast, Theodora and I went to Starbucks to grab coffee. I ordered a soy milk misto. To eat, I whipped up a bowl of oatmeal with banana, cinnamon, and sunflower butter. It was an epic bowl of oats.

Time to get ready for my television debut! AHHHH! Wish me luck!



  1. It’s nice waking up in a hotel in nyc, but you might change your mind when you’re apartment is the size of a closet and you can wake up and see the entire thing from your bedroom 😉 good luck!
