Winning Combination

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.

I’m always a little hesitant about eating a non-oatmeal breakfast, especially on work days. I’m never sure that it hold me over until lunch like my wonderful and filling oatmeal does. This morning, however, I may have found a great alternative to my usual oats. I know that this might sound strange, but I actually do get bored with oats every once in awhile! πŸ˜‰

This morning’s winning combination was 2 Van’s waffles with peanut butter and sliced banana. The combo of ingredients was obviously scrumptious, but surprisingly satisfying. Peanut butter + banana always seems to have that affect on me!

Breakfast also included an iced coffee with soy milk and agave nectar.Β 


Now the ultimate test is whether this breakfast holds me over until lunch!Β 

Question of the Day

What’s your breakfast winning combination? What breakfast can you always rely on to satisfy you and carry you through to lunch?



  1. those waffles look so good! πŸ™‚ I want to eat that for breakfast tomorrow. I like to eat oat bran like its no body’s business.

  2. Try a high fiber cereal (i.e. Kashi’s Honey Sunshine or Trader Joe’s High Fiber O’s) + sliced banana + peanut butter + 15 seconds in the microwave ;), add a little handful of raisins to really keep you pumpin through the day!
    Works for me all the time

  3. Great question! My go-to breakfast is an cheese omelet (2 eggs, little bit of water, .5 oz of mozzarella cheese, .5 oz of cheddar cheese). It’s very cheap. I always have the ingredients on hand and it’s pretty quick to make. And it has 240 calories, lots of protein and almost no carbs!

  4. My go to breakfast is whole wheat toast with a little whipped butter & jam along with a piece of fruit and coffee w/ 1%. It doesn’t seem like much but it always keeps me super satisfied! Cereal never fills me up and oats make me feel hot & too full so toast it is! πŸ™‚

  5. Oatmeal, oatmeal, oatmeal!! All through high school I either had a bowl of cereal or raisin muffin w/ pb and those 2 never held me over as long as my streamin’ bowl of oats w/ pb & fruit do now! πŸ™‚ I loveee seeing the iced coffee, it always makes me crave it!

  6. This is my quest of the moment. Today, a peanut butter sandwich held me until lunch. But I do love oatmeal – especially with PB and jam. I went through a granola phase a few years ago. I love granola, but too often I overeat it.

  7. Oatmeal or oat bran with mix-ins hold me from 6a until about 9:30a or 10a, but then I usually need a snack. Some sort of omelette or fritatta always holds me better, but mostly they don’t appeal to me in the morning.

  8. I don’t think it’s weird to get bored of oatmeal – I actually don’t get how people eat the same thing day after day, even if the toppings are a little different!

    Pretty much anything I eat for breakfast holds me over, within about 30 min on either side of noon. I’m more of a “schedule” eater, not on purpose, but I just tend to be hungry at the same times every day, even if I eat different foods.
