Perusing the Sunday New York Times today I found an interesting article about “a taste of home.” Now, currently in my refrigerator I have some delicious peaches, and plenty of broccoli, squash, zucchini, tomatoes, avocados, bananas, etc.
This story was about the meals soldiers eat in the middle of Afghanistan and how each of nearly 50 nations serving over there feed their military. Being that these meals come in small packets that the U.S. calls M.R.E.’s, meals ready to eat, these militaries must get creative and give the soldiers a little taste of home.
There is a very interesting slide show that shows the different meals these soldiers get on the battlefield here below:
Will a vegan or vegetarian diet be better for the fighting soldier? Well, I am all for worrying about my own diet, and those of our children, and let those guys over in Afghanistan eat whatever the hell they want!
