We might have overdone it a bit, stretching our meat and sparing our sweets in the last few temp tasting posts-- now it's time (unfortunately) to get our asses in shape! This handful of cute illustrations found in the Better Homes and Gardens "Eat and Stay Slim" hardcover collection from 1968 shows us how to reduce and figure our calorie needs, plus simple and effective food exchange ideas for menu planning, eating out, exercising, and how to just stay slim in general. It's freakin' hot out there this summer-- so come on! (FYI: If anyone's interested in the artist's name, you might need to clean your glasses off to read it in one of the images below.) And not to confuse anyone even further, but I'm creating this post as I finish off the last piece of a homemade Fruity Pebble Cereal "No Bake" Cheesecake --so, whatev, right? Right.
