A Lunch Fit For a King or Queen

Vintage ad June 1953

Real Kings may eat quiche, but I’m celebrating the Coronation of King Charles  III with this 70-year-old Coronation classic. This waist-whittlin’ favorite of mid-century dieters was perfect to celebrate the crowning of a young, slender, Elizabeth as Queen.

For all who fantasized of being their own slenderella, nothing said watching your weight like a scoop of creamy cottage cheese, canned cling peaches, and Rye Krisp.  Once my go-to diet plate special, this combo was the royalty of diet food that could be found on every coffee shop and diner menu.

Hands down, it was the weapon of choice in the Battle of the Bulge.
