They recommend non-dairy cream cheese, but I can't figure out what that is :?:

Suzanne, I think it's cream cheese made with soya. I bet it's awful!
I have been sneaky sometimes and substituted Philladelphia Ultra-Low Fat for Laughing Cow. I've not run it through Fitday but I suspect ti's the same as far as calories, carbs and fat is concerned.
"Dairy-free cream cheese" - the phrase is an oxymoron!
