Sunday was a day filled with good food and lots of walking. That basically makes it the perfect day in my book.

In the morning, we stuck with our standard routine of drinking coffee, eating breakfast, and reading the paper. I had a bowl of Greek yogurt with some blueberries and granola with lots and lots of coffee.

I would normally go to gymnastics around lunch time but it occurred to me that we had an open day ahead of us. These don’t happen all too often so I demanded we go on an adventure. (I wish I could say it was more of a request but I suppose it probably came a cross as a demand…) The sun was shining so my original idea was to go on a picnic but we ended up finding ourselves in Church Hill. We grabbed lunch at Union Market so we could eat lunch on their patio. I had a delicious pesto grilled cheese with a kale Caesar salad. (They use tofu in the dressing, no anchovies!)

I also washed it down with a glass of ginger Barefoot Kombucha which was awesome. It’s rare to find kombucha on tap so when I see it, I can’t resist! The ginger gave it a spicy kick that I loved. We ended up walking around Church Hill for a while. Alex got me a pedometer last week and I’ve gotten really into it. I’ll tell you my total for the day at the end 😉

When we got home I was in the mood for a nap. I’m not a nap taker so it was kind of weird but it just sounded so good. We ended up napping for about 45 minutes and it was glorious. I totally get why people are into napping!

We headed out to church and I talked Alex into walking (again, that pedometer is motivating!) so we walked to church which is almost 1.5 miles each way so it was quite a hike. We ended up having to walk pretty fast so we weren’t late! Oops.

Once we got home, I did a little recipe testing.

The end result was the single serving banana bread recipe I posted on Monday so I ate part of that and then I had a small bowl of whole wheat pasta.

I kept it simple with olive oil, garlic, salt, and spices. Sometimes I’m just in the mood for this! My plan was to have some greens by making a simple cucumber salad but unfortunately my cucumber had gone bad. Such a bummer!

Alex was excited to watch the Wisconsin game, so I sort of watched part of the game (while browsing Pinterest) and at half time he took me to Sweet Frog for some frozen yogurt.

I ate quite a bit of food but I also clocked in over 15,000 steps! That’s a whole lot more than I can usually get during the week so I’m glad we got to go out and enjoy the fresh air.

 What are your favorite frozen yogurt toppings?
