I am wondering if I misunderstood this from the book. In the (absolutely fantastic, btw) list of snacks at the end of the snack chapter, it says plan-approved crackers and a light Laughing Cow wedge and says storebought Ryvita crackers are okay with the letters S, E and FP beside it. Does this mean a Ryvita cracker is a FP?

Yes, they are if you don't eat more than 2 at a time. The light rye type has 11 grams of carbs for two pieces I think, very little fat and I remember the calories are lower. So eating them with some a light cheese wedge or two is a nice fuel pull idea.
Have you ever tried GG crisp bread? It is a much lighter Fuel PUll, way less calorie and carb. I buy them at Kroger now and then. On their own they taste pretty bad but with toppings, I actually like them.
aecmama: hello! just started the plan and wondering about the Chobani 100 yogurt that is sweetened with stevia and also monkfruit extract (both of which I have already in the house!) Anyone know anything? I've spent awhile searching. Are either of these on plan?

steffanie3: "At this time, there is not an official recommendation to use monk fruit, but the early research on monk fruit extract is encouraging." The THM ladies are still researching it. If it were me I would use up what you have then get a stevia extract
