How do you fuel the innovation that happens within?

JSC-Innovation TreesIn order to protect the Niagara Escarpment, it was required The Scenic Caves Suspension Bridge in Ontario, Canada be built over the mass landscape of breathtaking trees. This bridge was built during the harsh Canadian winter to meet the opening date. Rob Thorburn saw an idea most did not accept or think possible. Innovative ideas come to us in the most unpredictable places. How does your environment inspire you daily? Where do you travel for creative injections? Who do you engage with to stimulate your brain to think in a new, positive direction? How do you fuel the innovation that happens within?

IMG_0758

If ever there were a time in history requiring us to dig deep and persevere, it is now. Inspiring stories can sometimes backfire because the person sharing their story has usually finished the work.

In honor of Steven Pressfield’s Do the Work, the Domino Project Street Team brought together their collective talents to create a free eBook entitled No Idling: 30 inspiring stories from those who do the workThe action-takers in this book put a human face to the trite sounding clichés. Their stories of overcoming Resis- tance provide a path from “Just do it” to mentally gearing up and forming habits to help you get things done. They don’t mince words. “Expect Resistance,” they say. “It’s there. Waiting for you. Be smart. Prepare for it.” The only way to fail is to stop. When you’re tempted, come back to Do The Work and No Idling to bolster your resolve. Remember that you took on your great work for a reason. Own it.

Healthy Coffee Break

Banana BreadMug

Banana Bread

Breakfast items or snacks for work can be a challenge. This recipe is a great solution and is pretty easy to follow. It can be adapted to the size of pan your are using.  They can also be baked as muffins. Give it a try!

2 cups  Organic Flour (Gluten free options work well. You can experiment.)
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground Flax Seed or Chia Seed
4 Organic Eggs
2 cups or 4 Mashed Bananas
1/2 cup Apple Sauce
1/3 cup Coconut Oil (Warm for easier mixing.)
1 tsp Vanilla
Chopped Walnuts (Optional)

Pureed black or white beans can be added to this to boost protein and fiber content.

Preheat oven to 350-375 depending on your oven.  If you are using convection, you will need to shorten your baking time.  It is best to keep an eye the first time to determine the best baking time for your process.

Sift the dry ingredients to add air. This is important when using gluten free flour.  If you are in a hurry and don’t the recipe will still work.

Mix wet ingredients excluding bananas and nuts.  Blend wet and dry ingredients. Once this is complete fold the bananas and walnuts in with a spatula. Don’t over due it as you will break apart the bananas.  You can also save a portion of nuts as your topper.

Distribute evenly into the greased tray you have chosen and bake for approximately 45-55 minutes.  Larger sizes will require longer times.

Enjoy!
