Your question was: What can I eat as dairy during Nutrisystem?.
Hi, Christine and welcome to the board..
There are many threads about protein/dairy add-ins on the board. A useful tool for newbies is the Search function (top right of board). Go to search, then advanced search, and then put your keywords in the title (I know protein will get you some) and then search the forums Food Talk and Tips and the dietician's forum. You should find many posts on the board already offering tips, as well as answers to many other questions you will have..
Good luck on program...
