Bread At EVERY Meal

Do you want to be healthy? Chow down on carbs three times a day. Oprah may say nay/neigh, but it worked for Joanna Bard.

My December 2, 1940 copy of Junior Scholastic touts the merits of delicious, starchy bread.

Included inside was a fun news quiz! Don’t all teens like news quizzes? This one is a doozy!

Put More Sugar In Lisa

 

This ad from my May 19, 1967 LIFE blows my mind. (scroll down for larger type)

 

It literally says, “Make sure you get sugar every day. People need what sugar’s got.” People don’t need more sugar. I’ve got plenty of sugar in me. I’ll tell you what I need: Lisa’s life. Lisa’s got it made. Trust fund much? I don’t see anything here about clocking in and working for the man.

Now THERE’S a metaphor!
