Also wanted to clarify that while I do have a couple of things with sugar listed in the ingredients nowadays, I didn't for the first 6-8 months of my journey. I wanted to make sure I could be in control of it rather than it controlling me, and I still avoid it in abundance. It can just sometimes be hard to find products that are completely sugar free, and you have to take into account what the other ingredients are, and how much nutrition you are getting from that item, like the waffle I ate yesterday. It's full of good for you organic grains, even if it does have a little evaporated cane juice.
You have to factor convenience and finances into the equation as well. I could probably figure out a recipe to make my own whole grain, flax filled waffles, but I would have to get a waffle maker, and do some experimenting which would probably mean wasting some ingredients along the way. And waffles and eggs is a quick, easy dinner that my whole family enjoys. It seriously takes about 5 minutes to scramble up some eggs and throw the waffles in the toaster. Gotta love that!
