What is the restaurant exception?

In a break from consumerism, one must wonder what could possibly warrant an exception from this type of fasting that would possibly allow for literally feasting.

It must be for social reasons, because I forgot to pack my work lunch, or if my partner really wants it(I’m not a stellar cook yet and his mom doesn’t want others using her kitchen, even on nights she’s not cooking).

It’s more to keep me from overeating as I age and my metabolism starts to slow, reduce my trash, and emphasize how important those I socialize with are.

I don’t want to sacrifice happy memories with loved ones on the grounds of “some ‘pointless’ challenge,” but I will suggest them to visit my home for dinners. I have plenty of food and am slowly getting the hang of cooking.
