Eat Bread.

Your weekdays are probably very fast paced. Between meetings, commutes, and social events, eating turns into something you do on the run. Who has time to make a home cooked meal when you can heat up some leftover Chinese in five minutes?

The Sabbath is different. Shabbat is a time of celebration and rejoicing. And the best way to celebrate it is to sit down and enjoy a meal with family and friends.
