Well, I'm not sure its program approved...but I checked the sugar and sodium content of the organic spaghetti sauce I have been buying at the health food store, and the spag. sauce is actually lower than the tomato basil HNS. While it doesn't add protein, I use the spag. sauce when in a hurry for a quick meal.
It hasn't drastically effected me yet...and I don't do it every day or anything.
Even the HNS have sodium and stuff...so just compare labels. Maybe low sodium V8 would be a good easy replacement?
