This new cookbook highlights how the Weight Watchers program has innovated
over the past five decades. Many of these retro recipes are reinvented to
incorporate foods once labeled "illegal" in the early days on the Weight
Watchers program, such as peanuts, sausage, corn, bananas, and alcohol. By
1972, the program had evolved, opening the door to all foods in moderation, a
philosophy that continues today, so members can enjoy everything from the
savory Sausage Focaccia to mouth-watering Bananas Foster.
