Hi, Toni1. Are you using the Menu Planner application to build your menus? If so, you can choose whatever you want as snacks, and avoid nuts. If you are using the ready-made menus, you can substitute for nuts with combinations of proteins and either carbohydrates or fat – for example, Greek yogurt, cheese and whole grain crackers or olives, one of our shakes (or something similar), a salad with legumes and dressing.

Thanks Christy, I’m finding the new switches a bit more complex. I had fallen off my menus in the last few months and the weight is going up, so came back for a correction, but there’s a bit of a learning curve.

Hi LynnM,

Nuts will appear under your main meals: breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you don’t see them under these meals in your final menu plan. Please feel free to add them by clicking on a food you wish to replace. If you are looking to add it to a Snack, then we suggest swapping it with a food item that has a similar exchange. For this, you can view your menu in Exchange Mode. I hope this helps!

Best 🙂

Hi, I just checked over the meal planner, and I couldn’t add any nuts to the protein for snacks. This is very limiting for me as I am non-dairy….with the old planner I could have nuts. Now there are just too many eggs there! What do you suggest?
