Hmm, I am not sure about tweaking. I did want to say that Jay Robb's Egg White Protein is on plan for mamas who can't do whey. I got some for one of of my littles (likes a smoothie when mom has one) and it is very good. We do love the beef and cabbage recipes in THM, I think they are all without dairy. I did just get a few goat milk items for my one who can't have cow dairy, maybe that could work? They are expensive though, so maybe on occasion?
There are also some almond milk products that are on plan, like unsweetened almond milk and unsweetened almond milk yogurt. The same goes for coconut milk products, but those will be for S only, for the most part. You could try some of those out for replacements. There are tons of non dairy recipes too to enjoy!
We are mostly dairy free but hoping that some of our food sensitivities will clear up if we're eating this way! In the meantime...we typically use unsweetened coconut milk (from a box, not canned). Can that be substituted for almond milk in recipes or will that throw off fat/carbs in a recipe too much?
I am allergic to egg whites. How will using Aqua Fava affect the ratings of S or E? Also, am dairy sensitive can I use the soy sour cream as a sub for sour cream and thickened cashew milk for heavy cream if it is thickened with glucie (sp)?
The Aqua Fava (from chickpeas, correct?) can be used in a small amount in an S but more freely in an E. I am thinking that the soy sour cream would have to fall in an E because of the soybeans, but more likely if there is also fat involved it would be a crossover. You may want to check the ingredients and the nutrition facts. Yes, using coconut milk in place of cream is great.
I am so glad I'm not the only one with food allergies. Mine are a bit different...I am allergic to onions, roasted garlic, avocados and any kind of melon. I know these are used a lot in the recipes, except the melons. I can have a small slice of avocado on occasion, but the others are out. I am figuring a way around these and still staying on plan. The belly aches and my IBS have started to ease. I am pleased to be feeling better.
Legume allergies: I'm dangerously allergic to all things in the legume family e.g. soy, beans of every type, chickpeas and peanuts. Are there alternatives to these for this program? In some of the recipes I see legumes used and I am assuming they bring a protein to the recipe: are there alternative protein sources that are non-legume, non-nut?
Can you do seeds? Hemp hearts, pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds), chia, sunflower, flax and sesame seeds are all good sources of protein. You wouldn't use them in an E setting though. They would have to be S.
msjongg: Just wondering... Are rice noodles on plan?

queen: Probably a good idea to start a topic asking about it. Generally, I think they want you to use the whole grains rather than something made from brown rice flour, but maybe there's more to know about it.

queen: Got a notice that the THM website is having a big cyber-Monday sale and are offering a couple new items. They have also introduced flat rate shipping. Time to stock up on that Gentle Sweet.

marmee: One question: if I have early morning coffee with coconut oil ( or if I choose cream) are they considered a snack, should I wait 3 hours before eating? If I eat an S meal soon there after am I ok? Would that be a problem if I eat an E meal soon after?

queen: You can post here if you like. But you can start a post by entering a forum (any of the linked titles above this shouting box). Once you are in the forum, you should see a "Create Thread" link in the title bar. Click that to get a posting screen.

queen: If you eat an S meal within an hour of your oil/cream coffee, it is all considered the same meal. Otherwise, you need to wait the 3 hours.

queen: If you are in weight loss mode, you avoid them. Maybe throw in one or two a month if you aren't losing well. It can help to shake things up and get losses started again.
