  • I just entered this identical recipe into the recipe calculator from my Healthy Slow Cooker cookbook by Judith Finlayson and mine figured out to half the nutrients per serving than this one even though all the ingredients and proportions are identical. I don't know why. Did you include the yogurt - 10/20/12
