    Cut back on the sodium content by making your own broth. From initial comments about the recipe being NOT the best for "diet" food, please do not try to "rip" into them for posting this! Everything in moderation. If you have extra calories to use for the day, them by all means make it and enjoy!!! - 5/30/10
