Almost all processed foods have some form of sugar in it, and we have chunks of it on Weekends.

Note: 4 teaspoons of unrefined sweeteners, per day, is allowed. In addition to the 4 daily teaspoons of unrefined sweetener, stevia is also permitted.

There are many good food choices which get skipped as we have started to prefer sweets & beverages as dessert, but any fruit as a dessert will be more beneficial.
