The featured blog for the first week in April is Carrots N Cake. Tina writes this blog from her home in Boston, Massachussets. She originally started it as a personal journal to keep her focused on healthy eating and exercise. The blog caught on and has a large readership. She also recently secured a book deal based on her blog. What I like abou this one is the variety of fitness and food info. you can find on here. It’s vast!
She’s got weekly meal plans, weekly workout plans, a half marathon training guide and treadmill workouts. She has 30, count ’em, 30 different blog categories. The cool thing about them is they are health and fitness based, but there’s more that gives you a peek into Tina’s very busy life. You can check out “Boston” where you get a glimpse into the excitement of Boston Marathon day and what it’s like at “Local 149” a downtown eatery where Tina and her husband head for date night. Click on “Home” and you can follow along while Tina updates her home office.
This is a blog to go back to again and again, because you will always find something new to motivate you in your fitness journey. Check out Carrots N Cake and tell me what you think.

This week’s featured blog is snack-girl.com I actually got acquainted with Snack girl when I started to follow her on Twitter. Whenever a snack looked tasty to me, I checked into her web site. I have quite a collection of healthy recipes and snack advice from Snack girl. Here’s what she says about why she got into healthy snack blogging.
“Lisa Cain, Ph.D., is an avid snacker, foodie, published author, and mother of 2. An evolutionary biologist by training, she has become obsessed with how food contributes to our overall health.
For example, she is fascinated with the fact that Americans in the 1950’s weighed on average MUCH less than they do now. Obviously the root cause of the epidemic is what we eat, and she wants to help people make better decisions about what they eat.
She believes that the study of nutrition is overrated and that we should eat as our ancestors did. Since our ancestors didn’t have convenience stores and Starbucks, she decided to write about snacks to help people understand how to decipher food marketing messages.
She is also a big proponent of food that doesn’t have any packaging at all.”
