Episode Info:

Food history is a thing, and Heather Arndt Anderson is here to show us why it’s cooler than breakfast.

It may not be the most important meal, but this may be the most important meal book. So please read it.

This episode of The Big Inside starts with a question that you probably already have an answer to:

What is the most important meal of the day?

Well, show host Christian Matyi, a/k/a “XN,” is betting he knows what you’re gonna say. But also betting you aren’t sure how this myth came to be.

After chatting with some really strong dudes who know a lot about the precision of nutrition, XN has a minor nervous breakdown. But then he rallies and dives into the background of the most nostalgic meal we got: breakfast.

Armed with his trusty pack of nutrition-savvy athletes and the brilliant guiding light of food historian and author Heather Arndt Anderson, we pull up the roots off breakfast and see what the heck makes it’s mythology grow. What we learn. might make you forget about whether or not you think breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but instead wonder why you even thought that in the first place. 

We’re diving into a thousand years of history and mythos, all in the name of figuring out why we love corn flakes so much.

There’s also a cameo by Quinn the Cat, and Christian and Heather get into some Taiwanese rom-coms.  All that and more on this episode of The Big Inside.

Special thanks to the coaches trainers, and athletes who helped us get our nonsense straight in this episode:
