Cool It Now

During the Summer months, it is very important to keep cool. And I don't just mean temperature-wise.

There are so many opportunities to lose your cool when the weather gets warm. Cookouts, parties, cocktails and vacations can all make the Retro WW Gal experience Summertime distress!

So what do you do when you need a quick refresher to cool you off if you begin to stray from your weight loss goals? Mix up the following ingredients, and you'll be sure to get yourself back in the correct mindset almost immediately...

The Cooler Melange
(July 1971 Weight Watchers Magazine)


1/2 Cup Orange Juice
1/2 Cup Tomato Juice
1 Cup Buttermilk
1 Teaspoon Mint Leaves

After knocking back one of these, you'll forget all about those fun Summer parties & activities. The shuddering chill up your spine will remind you to get yourself back on track right away. Yes indeed.

Because when you suck down a glass of buttermilk and juice -- playtime is over.

Someone was thinking, let's mix all sorts of stuff that doesn't go together...and they succeeded!

Weight Watchers has come a long way. Just saying.

Adding vodka helps.

Nausea does keep one from over-indulging!
I sometimes think that WW was promoting Bulimia with some of these monstrosities.
