    Books & Menus

    This past week I had the pleasure of reading Tina Haupert’s new book, Carrots ‘N’ Cake: Healthy Living One Carrot & Cupcake at a Time. I have been a follower of Tina’s blog for some time now, in fact I have modified several of her recipes to be gluten-free.  A couple of those recipes have become some of my favorites!  The first one is the Chocolate Pumpkin Loaf!  Wow…..this is a decadent treat!  The other is her Oatmeal Raisin Bars.  These bars can even pass for an on-the-go breakfast or healthy snack! 

    I love Tina’s laid back approach to managing her life, exercise & weight.  When she has special occasions planned, Tina makes sure to adjust her diet & exercise to be able to enjoy those times and not stress about indulging in some drinks & food.  Instead of beating herself up after an indulgence, she goes right back to eating & exercising like normal.  Everything in moderation, right?  Life is too short to live on a strict diet or skip outings & functions with friends & family. 

    If you get a chance to read this book, it is a great read!
