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.
