A Typical Afternoon

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.

Minus packing up my apartment, this afternoon was pretty typical.

I took the pug for a long walk around the neighborhood.


Then, we returned home, waited for Mal, and made pizza for dinner.


There’s a lot of walking, waiting for Mal, and pizza on this blog! πŸ˜‰


The food situation in our kitchen is pretty sad right now, but I managed to scrounge up a sample of So Quick & Easy Whole Wheat Pizza Dough from Wildtree. All I had to do was add water and oil. Perfect.


While making the dough, I poured myself a glass of white wine. After the amount of packing that I did today, I needed it.






The So Quick & Easy Whole Wheat Pizza Dough turned out really well. I added Garlic Gold nuggets to the mix, so it had a nice garlic-y flavor to it. The texture of the crust was firm and grainy.


Mmm! I love pizza– always have, always will! πŸ˜€


Dinner tasted so delicious this evening, I’m seriously considering a third piece of pizza and a second glass of wine! πŸ˜‰

Enjoy the evening! πŸ˜€



  1. Too cute πŸ™‚ Looks like most of my afternoons/evenings as well. The pizza looks super tasty. I am a big fan of thin thin crust pizza. Hope you have a great rest of your week

  2. I think you should go for it! I’m currently on the hunt for a good pre-made whole wheat (or whole grain) thin crust pizza dough… hoping to find one on my trip to Whole Foods next weekend!

  3. i never know what kind of cheese to top home made pizza with? what is a nice compromise of healthy but not tasteless?


  4. What a coincidence–we made homemade pizza for dinner tonight, too!

    Hope your packing is going well. When we moved into our house last year, I remember being so happy that it was the last time we’d be packing and moving for a looooooong time!

    PS–I wanted to thank you for introducing me to the “banana soft serve” you posted on your blog this summer (frozen bananas in the food processor). I made it for the first time this weekend and I’ve made a bowl every night since…it’s amazing! I add a TBSP of cocoa powder to mine πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for sharing such a neat idea.

  5. I am a pizza freak. Mmmm. Warm and cheesy is my comfort food… pizza.. grilled cheese.. mac n cheese =)

    @jen – try something really flavorful so you don’t have to max it out, such as romano or asiago w/ some parmesan, or a greek inspired pizza with feta, or tina’s fig + gorgonzola pizza! Also, cabot’s reduced fat cheeses are often recommended by Shape.

  6. Packing deserves an entire bottle of wine!!! Seriously packing might be the worst thing ever! If I never do it again it won’t be too soon!!!

  7. I love pizza! I honestly feel like I could eat it almost every day (at least every week). I like homemade pizzas because I can experiment with toppings without paying a lot of money. Happy packing!

  8. mmm pizza is so delicious and warm, a perfect fall meal!!! i wish i had your schedule…i’m stuck on my butt for 12 hrs at work ugh.

  9. For an apartment that’s all packed up, that’s an impressive dinner to whip together. I almost never make pizza, but I should change that. My Mom used to get dough from Bertucci’s and my Dad now makes homemade dough all the time. I just have to be careful not to go too crazy on the cheese. That’s obviously my favorite part…

  10. Pizza is my all time favorite meal…great choice πŸ™‚ You always have so many different, tasty varieties of pizza! I never get tired of it!

  11. Have you started any work on furniture overhauling yet? Or just trying to finish up packing?

    I’m so excited for you! I love seeing all the moving and new house photos. πŸ˜€
