Sunday = Rest Day

SUNDAY! Hi. How are yah?

Is Sunday a rest day for anyone else? Mark and I have been in a really great rhythm of working out 5 days/week. We take Thursdays and Sundays off and let me tell you, it’s SPECTACULAR. I love my rest days and I NEED them. Usually, my body is destroyed from the week’s workouts and I’m physically exhausted.

I think back to the days where I NEVER took rest days and I worked my body until I was physically exhausted and ill. People, this is not good for anyone. Your body needs to rest in order to properly break down and grow muscle. That’s right. GROW MUSCLE.

I know I mentioned this about 8 weeks ago, but Mark and I finally took our 2nd body fat test after our 8-week challenge at Switch. Guess what? We both got closer to our goals! My goal was to gain muscle and lose fat and I did both! I lost about 1.3% body fat and gained 1.5 lb.s of muscle. GUESS WHAT PEOPLE? Over all I GAINED weight. That’s just the way the body works, my friends! Mark did great too. He actually lost like 8 lbs. which is awesome for him. Must be that Fit Foodie diet he’s on now that he lives in Minneapolis. Oh, and a combination of hard work!

The Best Bread

So dis bread. I posted a sneak peek on IG last week and almost broke the internet. It’s finally here! Peanut butter + apple + streusel = love. It’s made with a base of white whole wheat flour, a little bit of brown sugar (cuz why not??), grated apples, some banana, and a whole lot of streusel. Lucky for you I made a video showing you how easy it really is to make.

It’s best if eaten with a scoop of peanut butter. #truth

Can you make it vegan?

I have not tried this apple streusel bread sans eggs, but it’s on my list to do some time soon!

Can I use a different type of flour?

I also haven’t tried it subbing any other kinds of flours, but I think part oat or buckwheat flour would be delicious! One thing I would do is sub coconut flour or almond flour 1:1.

Streusel or No Streusel?

I did make this without the streusel topping and it’s definitely sweet enough as a bread without it. If you’re not into the extra sweet/sugar, feel free to skip the topping for a more toned-down version.
