Top 10 Favorite Foods

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.

If you had to pick your top 10 favorite foods, what would be on your list?

Mal and I have been wracking our brains all night trying to narrow-down our lists, but we just have too many favorite foods! I’m so glad that I married a man who likes to eat as much as I do! 😉

Our top 10 conversation started after I introduced my husband to my favorite type of apple: JAZZ! :mrgreen: I ate one as a snack this afternoon. Mal did too and he totally loved it! He’s a jazz apple convert now! 😀


Here’s what we finally came up with for our top 10 lists:

Tonight, Mal and I made Real Simple’s Turkey and Bean Chili for dinner– and it was AWESOME! 😀 I always rave about Real Simple’s recipes, but this one was especially delicious and it made a TON of leftovers. We’re going to be eating them for DAYS. I’m not complaining! 😉

I also love that homemade chili is a fairly cheap dinner. The whole meal cost us around $6! Love that!


The star ingredient of the meal was Wild n Mild Grilling & Marinade Sauce that the folks at OpenSky sent me to test out.


We used the “Wild Blend” in tonight’s chili and it packed a serious punch! 😯 As the Wild n Mild slogan says: “Flavor that Bites Back!” Oh, yes, it did!

The flavor of the “Wild Blend” was unique, but it a good way! It’s semi-sweet and bbq-esque with a serious zing to it. (I assume that the “Mild Blend” doesn’t have as much heat to it.)

I added about 1/3 of a cup of the “Wild Blend” to the chili, and it added strong, spicy kick to the pot! Perfect!


I loved this chili recipe. It was soooooo flavorful with tons of big chunks of tomato, green bell pepper, and ground turkey. A bowl of spicy, hearty chili is truly the best!



I’m psyched that we have so many leftovers! 😉


For dessert, I ate 3 handfuls of peanut butter and chocolate chips. I’m addicted to these things! 😳


I *think* we may have found renters for our apartment! Yay! Now, Mal, Murphy, and I need to find somewhere to live! 😯

Off to scour Craigslist!
