    Hi, wardfam. Absolutely! Just be sure to pay attention to the type and amount. Each tablespoon of heavy cream is a "fat" exchange, of which you get at least one each morning, and for light cream, the amount is 1.5 tablespoons.

    Hi, Ana. Some items are in the lists to enable people to transition to a healthier lifestyle without throwing out what they have at home. However, there absolutely are some brands that are better than other. Whole Food's 365 brand is generally a safe bet, as would be Trader Joe's.

    Hi, thimaryjane. A free spread is a spread that either has negligible carbohydrates, fats, or proteins so does not need to be counted as an exchange, OR in a certain small amount does not need to be counted. This option generally appears when you have bread or crackers (or something similar) without another item in your meal that can be used as a spread.

    Hi, cward. Both are rather processed and have artificial additives, but of the two, the biscuits are better. For the coffee, it would be better to flavor your own regular coffee with vanilla extract and add whole milk and a high-quality sweetener like Stevia (with or without erythritol in the blend). If you have time, perhaps you can make your own biscuits - we have lots of "cookie" recipes that could be suitable (for example, http://www.trimdownclub.com/recipe/homemade-graham-crackers/).
