The book used in this posting is what appears to be part of a collection that came out in 1973. This is the only time I have edited the color in the pictures because the font color is the cornea burning green of the front cover.
Low calorie here we come since we already feel like slovenly fools!

|Betty Crocker's Low-Calorie Cookbook, 1973. I had to put the back on. Just reading it makes me MOTIVATED! I want to shed-some-points and-start-putting-a-dash in several-groups-of -words. I'm already a winner at the losing game!|
|Strain those eyes. What Betty Crocker book would be complete without a passive aggressive greeting? Neon green with white letters does not make for good reading. MY EYES! Make it stop! Again, I did a little color editing so this won't be an issue.|
|That's right. You read it here. Use that MSG to your advantage. I would rather have beautifully broiled lean, tougher meats than the ensuing MSG feel like crap syndrome.|
|I'm going to reckon on not even attempting this. I'm going to reckon on not having guests to eat my no noodle lasagna. There's a modicum of respect with those outside my family who have to eat my cooking.|
|Minds out of the gutter. These are exercise clocks. Or was I the only one with a mind that went south?|
|When I'm dieting, I too get pissed off enough that I will eat the flowers. I can relate.|
|Ole Bety is just making it up again I see. We are supposed to believe there are only 405 calories to this. I'm guessing 500. Do I get a prize?|
|Alright, I"m taking issue with this. I was born in 1974. This book came out in 1973. What this is telling me is that the new generation was fed aspic, molds, organ meat, smoked cigarettes, drank, ate meatloaf, and drank beef broth while pregnant with people of my generation. No wonder we are so screwed up! It's not like our predecessors are doing anything to promote healthy eating either with all the crap in foods! It's personal, Betty. What did Betty Crocker do for us? Invented Hamburger Helper. Thanks Betty Crocker CORPORATION.|
Did you get anything out of this cookbook? I didn't either. I know I can put numbers in front of things and that is surely the calorie count! Why didn't I think of that before? I would be trim and able to flex and flaunt in front of a three way mirror!
Until next time!! Seriously. I will find a closing. I'm working on it!
