Blogger Spotlight: Tina Haupert from Carrots ‘N’ Cake

by in Blogger Spotlight, September 21, 2012
 
Tina is a cookbook author, full time writer and blogger, and is certified as a personal trainer. With a passion for fitness and food, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a top priority. Tina is not a fan of dieting, so her weight loss tips encourage permanent lifestyle changes, as opposed to depriving yourself. Through Carrots ‘n Cake, the title of both her book and blog, she encourages a balance of “eating your carrots and savoring your cupcakes, too!” 

Describe what a normal day of eating is for you.

A normal day of eating for me involves lots of whole foods. I eat a Paleo-esque diet, but I’m not super strict about it and allow for splurges every now and then. For breakfast, I usually eat a two-ingredient pancake with almond or sunflower butter. Lunch is a salad with chicken or Curry Tuna Cakes or Spaghetti Squash Pancakes. Dinner is usually meat and veggies. Some of my favorite dinner recipes are Gingery Broccoli and Beef and Dry Rub Steak with Avocado SalsaSweet Potato Wedges are also a weekly staple in my lunches and dinners. For snacks, I like sliced banana with nut butter and protein shakes made with coconut milk and vanilla-flavored egg protein.

Tell us a little about your weight loss journey. What was the most difficult part, and how did you overcome it?

I’ve written about my weight loss story on my site.  The most difficult part was getting started, but, once I had a plan, it made it so much easier to stick to my new healthy habits.

What form of exercise do you recommend most to people just getting started?

CrossFit! A lot of people might be surprised to hear this, but CrossFit is scale-able to any skill level and there’s a modification for every exercise, so it’s a great way to get in shape and lose weight (quickly) even for beginners.

What’s your favorite song to work out to?

Anything by David Guetta.

We love the name of your blog. Is cake your favorite sweet treat?

Yep! Cake is my favorite food. I never turn down an opportunity to enjoy a piece!

Do you have a favorite recipe?  If so, please share!

Right now, I’m loving this recipe for Pad Thai from Well Fed. It’s made with spaghetti squash instead of noodles, and it’s absolutely delicious!
