Traveling out of town for the day and towards the end of the day we almost caved in to “hangry”. Definition from Oxford Languages: Hangry = bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger.
We were making excuses of why we should go to one of our favorite restaurants:
1️⃣ We don’t get here often, we should treat ourselves.
2️⃣ It’s so far to get home, we are hungry now!
3️⃣ It’s one meal out, we’ve eaten healthy all day.
👆🏼It’s not the fact that it’s a restaurant, it’s the fact that most likely we would have made very poor choices while there, Ex: Loaded mashed potatoes, fried onion petals, etc…
In the end, we made the decision to each have a protein bar on the drive home. Stopped at the grocery store and picked up a rotisserie chicken, lettuce, and a bottle of Bolthouse Farms dressing. 😋
Aside from being a much healthier choice, we didn’t feel miserable after eating, it only cost $16.00 (compared to the $40+ it would have cost to eat out) AND we have leftovers. 😊
I’d say that is a WIN, WIN! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
