    • Hi, IreneCsoko. Many of our recipes can be added using the edit tool to the right of a menu item. For newer recipes that have not yet been added into the system, you can use them to substitute for the main ingredient in your meal. You can also match up the exchanges visible at the end of each recipe and when you click on “Exchange View” in the toolbar above your menu. It doesn’t need to be a perfect match to work.

    • Hi, Chase1945. See if you can gradually cut back, rather than going cold turkey. A good substitute is to make your own: carbonated water + “cola” flavor extract + a natural no-calorie sweetener like Stevia, erythritol, or monk fruit.

    • Hi, Sharynne. Brewer’s yeast is a source of fairly high-quality non-animal protein, with some B-vitamins, and a tangy/nutty taste that gives Tiger’s Milk it’s characteristic flavor. You can substitute with nutritional yeast or freshly ground chia or hemp seeds.
