One day a week in our house is officially Cheat Day. It’s a religious holiday, really, because we’re so dedicated to the foods we miss during the week that our dedication is more like devotion. It’s the kind of devotion that eclipses rational thought and becomes more akin to belief, faith, and a deep sense rightness – words most people use to describe their spirituality, whether it comes in the form of organized religion or not.
Or maybe it’s just that when we eat cream cheese brownies drizzled with hot fudge raspberry sauce, we hear angels singing and we’re certain the rapture is upon us.
Seriously, though – we love to eat healthy, well balanced meals. Our regular daily diet includes very few carbs and almost no processed sugar. But one day a week we break all the rules. We indulge in the carb-iest, gluten-iest, sweetest foods we shun the rest of the time. We let loose, enjoy ourselves, and eat whatever we want.
