The bread we eat on shabbat is full of symbolism (not just calories). Feed your soul with some tidbits about why we bless two loaves, why we dip in salt, and how the ritual is done.
We wash our hands to emulate the kohanim, the Jewish priests, who would wash their hands to attain purity before ministering to G-d in the holy temple. Our Shabbat table is similarly considered an altar to G-d and therefore we wash our hands in preparation for our holy Shabbat meal.
