- Fun Fact: I used to live in Salem, MA. For anyone who hasn’t been there, the month of October means residents dread driving anywhere because of the massive influx of Halloween tourists.
My final year in Salem, I finally decided to join the festivities and nearly peed myself when I saw fictional Mike Myers and Freddy Kruger roaming the streets. 😂 And that memory reminded me... How many of us creatives are surviving instead of THRIVING like we are meant to be?
And by the way, you ARE capable of thriving in business as a creative.
If you’re an artist, writer a songwriter or product creator, here are 5 ways to THRIVE:
1. Stop contracting yourself out for work - you are not a slave to your craft or your time OR your money.
Set your prices to include your business expenses, taxes and personal bills (40% mark up recommended). Calculate how many products/services you need to sell to reach your desire monthly revenue goal.
2. Set up inbound and outbound marketing strategy to sell that specific # of services/products.
3. Get crystal clear on WHO you serve and draw them into your network.
4. Be VISIBLE daily. Get on that FB, IG and Pinterest to ADD value to those you serve (instead of showing up to sell) 😣🛑😩) 5. Allow yourself to be supported.
You are destined for greatness if you surround yourself with greatness.
It’s time to THRIVE instead of just surviving. This isn’t a Halloween movie. You are not a victim of circumstance or timing or money or lack of knowledge.
It’s time to VALUE yourself so others can value you.
There’s a time and place for everything....including French toast made with Glamorgan bakery cheese buns and cinnamon buns. Shit ya.
Becoming more aware of the foods you eat is the key to success in any meal plan or “style” of eating.
A few things that make up good nutrition and overall health goals: - eat balanced, and appropriately timed, macronutrients. What is balanced??....depends on what your goals are and sensitivities to certain foods, likes and dislikes. - eating and drinking the things that make you feel good in the long run. What does “feeling good” mean?.....healthy Pooh, solid sleep, fitness improvements while training, overall sense of well being...(aka mood and mindset). Strong mind and strong heart. - creating a plan, with a goal. Then understanding the work required to reach the goal....deciding how fast you want to get there, and assessing what is required to do so. Then stepping back and asking yourself if this is a lifestyle that you will find happiness in. If you hate what you eat, that’s no good....no matter how good the foods are for you.

We have a couple of boxes of fantastic Ovoli or Caesar’s mushrooms arriving tonight. An elusive and highly revered mushroom, were not expecting these to hang around!
Three cornered garlic in now! These leaves have a lovely oniony taste and look beautiful on a range of dishes.
Being a mother of twins is something so beautiful. Most of my day is comprised of entertaining, nursing and changing diapers on repeat until 5:30, when they go to sleep. By sleep I mean waking every 1-3 hours to nurse. At least they stay in bed so my entertaining and diaper changing job is over for the day. •
Around a month ago, our generator was stolen. A week later the thieves returned to break a window in our car and steal our car battery, diaper bag and some other things while we slept. Our car has had non stop issues for the last month. Meaning, every week we run in to an issue, and every week we are draining our pockets to keep it maintained. Although my babies take up my time and energy, and these issues seem like continual inconveniences, my mind still has space to think outside of these issues. •
I’ve recently started following @nowhitesaviors
. Wow, has my heart and mind been challenged. If you take a look at their content, it is very direct, and not sugar coated to say the least. It can be offensive to some, but realistically, what they share is truth, and sometimes truth hurts. What my heart has been dwelling on is this topic of race, racism and white saviorism; a sin so settle, the majority of people don’t realize they are committing it. •
I’m not sure what my intention is in sharing this except to tell you that even in my entertain, nurse, diaper change, repeat lifestyle; the wheels of my brain, and the pulse of my heart is still being challenged. What story of history will I tell my children? What is the story I tell the world through Instagram? Is it one of Africa needing to be saved? Or is it of Africa the great? What are the thoughts your brain are currently chewing on?

Yuzu has a refreshing astringent flavour, similar to a grapefruit, with hints of mandarin. Extensively used in Japanese cuisine.
I realize this picture is not food, but feels too important not to share. I’ve had these jeans in my closet for the better part of 10 years as my #goal
size. I’ve probably moved them to at least two different apartments and looked at them every time I went to go pick out a pair of jeans to wear. Today I decided no more. These “goal” jeans are low-rise, bootcut and outdated. They do represent the old me, someone who would wear clothes she wasn’t ever entirely comfortable in. I no longer want my goal to be looking in the rearview. I want to look ahead to the future, to a me I love and respect, to a me who doesn’t define herself by her size. So today I say goodbye to these jeans. I never loved you anyway!

We just love these fresh, juicy, little tubers. Crosnes coming in tonight!
How do you kick start a Mediterranean diet? Go to the Mediterranean of course!!!🌎 What a beautiful trip with my amazing husband. We were blessed enough to spend our 3rd year anniversary🍾 in Europe. Not only did we get the best weather we could have asked for but we got some well needed quality time just the two of us.
And don't even get me started talking about the food. I still can't believe some of the dishes we had and how Europeans really value their meals.🍝 In America, it seems we eat to eat. Upon talking to a local Roman, they value their meals because to them it is more of a chance to socialize and find time with family and friends. It was inspiring and beautiful to hear that making a meal and eating it is not a chore, but something to bring people together. Remember this on the next meal you make and invite some friends to help you out!
Rome and Aix: you have a piece of my heart.❤ I wish we had the fresh markets available to us that we found there and hopefully some day that will change. 🍊🍓🌽🍄🥦 #benowlifestyle #mediterraneandiet #nutrition #eatwell #blessed #europefood #eatfoodfeelgood #eatinghealthy #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #healthyideas #thoughtforfood #behealthy #europe #europetravel #mediterranean #travel #beinspiried #mindfuleating

It’s the first of the Spanish clementines! We’ll have them in tonight.
It’s the start of the season for these green beauties, Brussels sprouts on the stalk!
Thursday. Often, because of the culture we live in, people who actually just eat normally, often feel like their diets are inferior in health to those who subscribe to a particular diet. While there is a possibility that subscribing to a particular diet could result in better physical health than not being on a diet, at least for a moment, if a diet prescribes specific rules for foods or food groups, times to eat or specific amounts of food that can be eaten there is a good chance that: 🌮 a) the diet might not actually fit your body’s specific needs or 🌮 b) might lead to feeling guilt/shame about not meeting specific requirements and/or bingeing behaviors. .
For more thought for food on both of these topics check out my blog posts: “why diets make us rebels” and my newest post about my personal journey of trying to eat healthier and actually making myself less healthy in the process. **Link in bio!** callalilynutrition.com

Nosh. No "real food" for today's bento. Special circumstances demand a special packing list. Pretzels, egg and carrots for her and ham/cheese roll-ups and mandarin for him. Bananas and water for both. #bentostories #schooldays #thoughtforfood

This is the most delicious guacamole I know how to make. The thing is: all the ingredients are the same as your average guac. Avo, lime, chili, garlic, onion, cilantro, and salt.
So why is this guac so good? It does more with what it is.
Abundance and scarcity are better thought of as a philosophy choice, rather than whether something is finite or infinite. Finite and infinite are distinctions about the present restrictions we face. They're real factors to be considered, we have present restrictions to deal with, and knowledge of what lays past them is impossible. It's not the law of attraction that I'm talking about. It's an actual choice you make several times a day. Abundance: there's enough to work with. Scarcity: there's not enough and no options will work.
Viewed from the point of scarcity, this choice is a dichotomy. Scarcity or abundance. Feast or famine.
But a more interesting thing happens when this is viewed from abundance. Abundance isn't a single point. It's a wide variety of possibility, with glimmers and hints of even more to be discovered with a bit of exploration.
So, back to guac. This guac is actually the conceptual reverse of the standard smashed avocado guacamole, which is an avocado sauce, seasoned with lime/salt and garnished with chilies, onion, garlic, cilantro--- and tomato if you make your guac wrong. In this recipe, the chilies, aliums, and cilantro are pulverized to create the sauce with the lime and salt. The sauce is a dressing for the avocado, which is just cubed and folded into the sauce until the corners rub off and make the whole thing creamy.
The result is a chunky guac like you expect, but it packs the immediate punch of the thin guac-salsas you'd drizzle on tacos, followed by the tempering smoothness of pure avo.
The choice of abundance lets us do more from restrictions. Creativity is that problem solving force we're wired with to make enough from whatever there is to work with. So many cooking techniques are a testament to humans just figuring out how to eat weird things when times were lean.
We're so fucking good at it that we don't stop at enough. We make art.Decide there's enough and you can create beauty using a rock.
The end is nigh for these beautiful Scottish elderberries. Get them while you can!
Rushed bento. Chopped fried chicken, rice with nori, mandarin, carrots and cookie. They have a pizza and lemonade fundraiser today, so my guess is that they won't eat it all. 🤷♀️ #bentostories #schooldays #thoughtforfood
