I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve been trying to meet societal standards for a summer body, and have recently started a diet. It’s nothing too extreme, but weekday lunches do consist of a whole lot of lettuce, and I’ve been eating some sort of quinoa-like seeds daily. (Whole Foods advertised them as a replacement for gluten and quinoa, which itself is a gluten replacement, so they’re probably just air puffs.) But while I may not savor every bite of food that goes into my mouth, I thankfully haven’t resorted to eating anything named “fluffy mackerel pudding” or “jellied tomato refresher” to get in shape. But, according to a Weight Watchers recipe book from the 1970s, maybe I should. Click here to check out some strange (and, frankly, gross-looking) recipes from it!
I absolutely insist that you head on over to the source to view all the delicious recipes, and to read some hilarious commentary. Sorry, Weight Watchers, but I think I’ll stick to my not-quinoa air puffs. They at least don’t look like something that’s risen from the depths of Hades.
Have you ever tried any recipes like this? Would you eat any of these concoctions?
