A multivitamin? Who needs that? Likely most of us in Chicago.
Does this scenario sound familiar...?
"Sam has to be picked up at 4 and to practice by 4:15. Mark has to be picked up at 3:45 and dropped at the Chicago pool at 4. Sam is done at 5:30 and Mark is done at 5. What about dinner before the meeting at 7:30 and Sam has to be at the game at 8. I'll just grab something for us to eat in the car." … Whew!
Our lives move so fast that life In Chicago tends to be busy indeed! We are running and multi-tasking like crazy. If we have a second to consider the food we are fueling our bodies with, let alone our family members, we may feel a smidgen guilty, knowing that we should eat better. But, as we all know, that moment is fleeting, and we are back to our frenetic lives full of fast food here and there.
