Humor me for a moment.
It has been a long week. You arrive home on a Friday late afternoon from work.
Normally, what would you be doing?
I imagine it’s usually one of two things…
Order a pizza for the family. The kids may be happy but you’re really regretting those garlic knots. The carb load hits you and all you have the energy left for is putting the kids to bed and falling asleep in front of the TV with your spouse.
Take the family to Applebee’s or another chain restaurant. You wait for a table, eat food you really wish you didn’t, then decide to get dessert anyway. You come home smelling like greasy food, and just like last weekend, that carb load sends you straight to bed. Unfortunately, this sleep isn’t very restful considering your kids are bouncing off the walls from that ice cream sundae sugar rush.
