I love using the Crockpot too. I was at a yard sale on Sat with an old School friend I haven't seen in almost 20 years and got 2 boxes full of Cookbooks for $3.00 am writing down names of Cookbooks and pages of Recipes I want to try. All of the Microwave ones I am going to use the Crockpot for that way they get done and still should taste like they should I hope. This Recipe is very good.

I'm sure the high sodium count is from the dry salad dressing mix so I'd leave that out and use your own seasonings or maybe Mrs Dash.

I wish you would also list calories. I know diabetics generally count carbs but I am on a diet that also requires us to count calories.

This sounded good until I looked at the sodium content. I'd have to eat no sodium the rest of the day to enjoy this If I try this I'll use my own seasonings and low sodium soup. My blood pressure rises just looking at that sodium information.

I just finished a diabetes class at Presbyterian Hospital. The dietician and the nurse that gave the class both said the best sweetner for a diabtic is Agave Liquid. I haven't tried it yet, but I purchased some this week at Kroger's…Whole Foods also has it and most health food stores so I have been told.

Change the cook time only if you only have one temp on your Crock Pot I have found that by having it on warm it takes 8 -9 hyours to cook on Low it takes 6-7 hours and on high it takes 4 hours to cook.
