I'd be careful - if you start to see some foods as free, you may start arguing that others are almost free too... it sounds like this would encourage you to 'pick' and 'cheat'? I think is you are SS the whole point is no food & taking food out of the picture is part of the whole point of it... you can learn from it & use the 'break' to work out why you are overweight in the first place. I know that if I 'cheated' on a regular basis I'd never have sustained CD this far or lost the weight I have... it'd have been the start of the slippery slope for me!

These would be allowed on SS+, but not on SS. SS is sole source..absolutely no conventional food. That's the idea.

It sounds like she's recommending SS+ without the protein. Sort of SS plus a little of SS+.

(Oh, except balsamic vinegar, though allowed at one time, is not allowed any more on SS+)

As far as weight and ketosis is concerned, it's unlikely to do you any harm. Psychologically it can if you want to take food out of the equation for a while though.

So it's up to you, but usually people chose SS or SS+ if they want to do a VLCD. Both brilliant plans, but best to know which one you are doing rather than allow 'free' foods (which don't exist on the plan), which can lead to other things.
