Wine Date

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.

My friend, Jen, is on her way over to our apartment for a wine date, so I really need to make tonight’s blog post snappy!


The nice folks at NuVal treated us to a sushi (or pizza) lunch this afternoon. Sweet! :mrgreen: The conference room was mayhem at lunchtime!


For lunch, I ordered a roll of Red Sox Maki, which was made with lobster, asparagus, avocado, cucumber, lettuce, tobiko, and spicy mayo. It was AWESOME! :mrgreen:


Even though lunch was absolutely delicious, I was hungry just a few hours later. When I got home from NuVal, I snacked on an Apple Cinnamon Pure Bar.


And, a little while later, I munched on a bunch of dates, which I may or may not have dipped right into the jar of peanut butter. 😉


Dinner & Dessert

My afternoon snacks held me over quite well, so when dinnertime rolled around, I wasn’t that hungry. I decided to have some leftover salad with balsamic vinegar.


In the mix: lettuce, grape tomatoes, cucumbers, red cabbage, mushrooms, orange and green bell peppers, and radishes. The salad was actually pretty filing!


For dessert, I dug into my chocolate stash! 😉


Sharffen Berger makes the BEST dark chocolate! 😀


I dipped my chocolate square right into the peanut butter jar. I love the chocolate + PB combo!

(The peanut butter dipping seemed to be a theme for the day! 😉 )


NuVal Buzz

Just because the holidays are seen by many as a time of indulgence, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice nutrition. Using NuVal scores, see what you can do to trade up for nutrition: Trade Up at Thanksgiving

Also, be sure to check out A Better Bag of Groceries to see how you can have a Balanced Thanksgiving and enter to win a Barilla Pasta Trade-Up package. The giveaway ends tonight, so be sure to pop over ASAP!

It’s wine time! See ya! 😎



  1. Is that sushi from Ichiro in East Milton? One of my favorite sushu places!

    If you like peanut butter in your hot chocolate, check out Castries Peanut Rum. It is awesome on its own, but combined with hot chocolate… unreal!

  2. What the heck is it with sushi…I’m left hungry not long afterwards as well? I’ve often thought that it’s the lack of fats. Hmmm. Plenty of protein right?

  3. I love that there is Red Sox sushi!! So cute. I’m going to check out NuVal pre-turkey dinner to have a plan in place for the holiday!

    Have fun on the wine date!

  4. Love the NuVal site and I love playing the game. It’s amazing to see how things score out, especially seeing results you don’t expect! I think it’s a great tool to use during the holidays in making the best and healthiest choices possible! 🙂

  5. sushi looks great!!! can’t wait for the 12 days of christmas giveaways 🙂 i probably take multiple dips in my pb/ab jars daily too

  6. I love hearing about regional sushi in other states. I don’t know why, maybe I’m just a dork.
    Here in Louisiana we have tons of “cajun” sushi with crawfish, crab, and spicy stuff.
    Not too much lobster here. 🙁
