Whirlwind on the Horizon

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.

Happy Friday! :mrgreen:

I’m so glad that the work week is just about over, but the next few days are going to be a whirlwind for me! More on that in a minute. 😉


I started my morning with a bowl of oat bran + oatmeal. I’m really lovin’ oat bran. It adds so much creaminess.


In the mix:

  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup oat bran
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 scoops Nuttzo


I topped my bowl with almonds and raisins.


I also enjoyed a glass of iced coffee with hazelnut milk. Delish!


Bertolli + Big Apple

So, I have some exciting news to share with you guys!

Bertolli is getting ready to launch a new series of webisodes titled “Into the Heart of Italy: Six Adventures, Three Celebrities, One Mission”¦ To Unlock the Secrets of Italian Passion for Food and Life.” It’s an online series that will feature celebrity chef Rocco Dispirito and actors Marisa Tomei and Dan Cortese as they explore the food and culture of Italy. Here’s a little preview.

To kick-off the series, they’re hosting a media lunch and premiere in New York City next week with Rocco, Marisa, and Dan, and I have been invited to attend with 10 other bloggers! Ahhhh! So cool, right!?! Obviously, I am VERY excited! Be sure to stay tuned for my adventures from the Big Apple next week! :mrgreen:

I have a big day ahead:

  • Working from home
  • Book editing!!!
  • Conference call
  • Seminar and salmon tasting
  • Date night

And, I’m off! 😀
