We recently celebrated the 77th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion, paving the way for the defeat of Facism and liberating Germany for subsequent Euro Hipsters.
I recently watched a documentary called "Normandy: Surviving D-Day". It is free on YouTube. Great documentary! Very polished and substantive, but that's not the reason I liked it so much.
While not the focus of the documentary, it did discuss the impact of the huge breakfast that the troops had before the invasion consisting of bacon, eggs, toast and other heavy breakfast foods. Allied planners thought a hearty breakfast would boost morale and help the young men be ready to defeat Nazi's.
In this episode, I discuss why that was such a bad idea and how that big breakfast nearly cost the Allies dearly on D-Day. I also cover a majorly cool Jewish guy named Hal Baumgarten, a tough guy who sought revenge against Nazi's and we discuss what he ate before D-Day. We also discuss another Jewish tough guy, Ori Hofmekler, author of the Warrior Diet, one of the first books advocating one meal a day.
Let's just say Hal chose a different path. Whoa this was a fun one to do.
