        For these, you’re going to need to soak the tofu for 5-10 minutes. You then fry the tofu in a skillet, until golden brown. Choose your toppings and fill your sandwich! Get the recipe here!

          These butternut flatbreads are made with a unique ingredient… Gelatin! Of course, you can skip this if you feel uneasy about putting gelatin into your bread. However, it won’t be as chewy (if that’s what you’re looking for)! You can bake them from 12 to 17 minutes, depending on how crisp you want them. Find the recipe here.

                This paleo wrap is genius! Use the meat for a sturdier sandwich, instead of the lettuce! Lay out some meat, fill it with your favorite toppings, and wrap it up! You can find this recipe here.

                8.) Tomato Burgers

                  Tomatoes are moist, juicy, gluten free, and have little to no carbs. It’s no secret why tomatoes make the perfect alternative to hamburger buns. Once you cut the tomatoes in half, scoop out the seeds, and grill them for a few minutes, you’ll be able to stuff your favorite toppings (such as cheese and lettuce) inside the holes so there’s no mess! You can find the recipe here.

                  9.) Plantain Tortilla Wraps

                    These wraps are amazing. Plantains are healthy, however, you don’t want to eat these raw. They have a very bitter taste, but when you cook them your taste buds will sing with joy. You’ll need a food processor in order to purée the plantains, and then you can add the rest of the ingredients. Did I mention they only take 15 minutes to bake? You can find the recipe here.

                    10.) Sweet Potato Buns

                      Via: platedwithstyle.com

                      These healthy buns are filled with honey, coconut milk, lemon juice, and of course sweet potatoes. They’re easy to make, and the recipe can be adjusted to fit your taste. All you have to do is cook the sweet potato in the oven until it’s soft, then purée it with the other ingredients. Give these a try- find the recipe here.

                      11.) Buckwheat Flatbread Sandwiches

                        Via: food.com

                        This flatbread isn’t considered paleo because it includes some grains. However, it’s packed with flavors and textures that you won’t be able to find anywhere else! It takes about two days to make, considering you have to soak the dry ingredients with water, oil, and apple cider vinegar. When the seeds rise to the top of the bowl, you’ll be ready to bake! You can find the recipe here.

                        Why Assuming Positive Intent Is an Amazing Productivity Driver

                        Why Assuming Positive Intent Is an Amazing Productivity Driver

                        Assuming positive intent is an important contributor to quality of life.

                        Most people appreciate the dividends such a mindset produces in the realm of relationships. How can relationships flourish when you don’t assume intentions that may or may not be there? And how their partner can become an easier person to be around as a result of such a shift? Less appreciated in the GTD world, however, is the productivity aspect of this “assume positive intent” perspective.

                        Advertising

                        Most of us are guilty of letting our minds get distracted, our energy sapped, or our harmony compromised by thinking about what others woulda, coulda, shoulda.  How we got wronged by someone else.  How a friend could have been more respectful.  How a family member could have been less selfish.

                        However, once we evolve to understanding the folly of this mindset, we feel freer and we become more productive professionally due to the minimization of unhelpful, distracting thoughts.

                        Advertising

                        The leap happens when we realize two things:

                        1. The self serving benefit from giving others the benefit of the doubt.
                        2. The logic inherent in the assumption that others either have many things going on in their lives paving the way for misunderstandings.

                        Needless to say, this mindset does not mean that we ought to not confront people that are creating havoc in our world.  There are times when we need to call someone out for inflicting harm in our personal lives or the lives of others.

                        Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of Pepsi, says it best in an interview with Fortune magazine:

                        My father was an absolutely wonderful human being. From ecent emailhim I learned to always assume positive intent. Whatever anybody says or does, assume positive intent. You will be amazed at how your whole approach to a person or problem becomes very different. When you assume negative intent, you’re angry. If you take away that anger and assume positive intent, you will be amazed. Your emotional quotient goes up because you are no longer almost random in your response. You don’t get defensive. You don’t scream. You are trying to understand and listen because at your basic core you are saying, ‘Maybe they are saying something to me that I’m not hearing.’ So ‘assume positive intent’ has been a huge piece of advice for me.

                        Advertising

                        In business, sometimes in the heat of the moment, people say things. You can either misconstrue what they’re saying and assume they are trying to put you down, or you can say, ‘Wait a minute. Let me really get behind what they are saying to understand whether they’re reacting because they’re hurt, upset, confused, or they don’t understand what it is I’ve asked them to do.’ If you react from a negative perspective – because you didn’t like the way they reacted – then it just becomes two negatives fighting each other. But when you assume positive intent, I think often what happens is the other person says, ‘Hey, wait a minute, maybe I’m wrong in reacting the way I do because this person is really making an effort.

                        “Assume positive intent” is definitely a top quality of life’s best practice among the people I have met so far. The reasons are obvious. It will make you feel better, your relationships will thrive and it’s an approach more greatly aligned with reality.  But less understood is how such a shift in mindset brings your professional game to a different level.

                        Not only does such a shift make you more likable to your colleagues, but it also unleashes your talents further through a more focused, less distracted mind.
