Have you tried the Vintage Hankie Diet?Posted: June 16, 2014 Filed under: Fun Finds, What we collect | Tags: vintage handkerchief 8 Comments
Some people claim to have tried every diet ever devised. Atkins. South Beach. Low carb. Low fat. Paleo. You name it.
But I bet they’ve never tried the Vintage Hankie Diet. It’s a strict regime with only 60 items on the menu.
Of course, you’ll survive just fine because eight of them are alcoholic.
Fancy a beer? Sherry? Cognac? It’s got you covered.
You won’t feel a bit deprived. It’s got all five food groups: veggies & fruit, dairy, grains, champagne and caviar. It’s a recipe for a party.
Maybe this hankie was supposed to be a take-along reminder to watch your waist at social events. As if your girdle wouldn’t be enough of a reminder.
You’re even allowed to have chocolate. Just don’t go overboard and eat the entire box.
You could make some truly strange combinations on this diet plan. Pate and pie? Spaghetti and sauterne? Pineapple and sardines?
Thanks, anyway! I think I’ll pass on the Vintage Hankie Diet.
Do you know what that brown blobby thing is in the fourth photo? Please let me know!
We will be over the moon and totally love you if you share us with your friends!
Blobby thing…hhhhmmm. I think I have the same hankie diet here, but haven’t tried it on my end.
You could pretend it’s Nutella to put on the toast. 🙂 I might be tempted to try that!
“…because eight of them are alcoholic.” LOL!
Let’s compare: Toast, 100 calories. Champagne, 90 calories. Clearly, you’re better off tossing the toast and drinking the champagne!
Champagne breakfast here we come!
Let’s plan to do that this Sunday morning! 🙂
And lobster for dinner! 🙂
And what IS that unnamed red . . . thing. . . with the claws? Presumably it’s a lobster, but darned if it doesn’t look like a scorpion.
Peanut butter? Fudge topping? Whatever it is, I wouldn’t put it with a creepy looing crustacean!
