Does Michelle Approve of this Diet
CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORP DIET NOW A FAD DIET FOR ATHLETES After physical training, the enrollees trooped off to breakfast, a noisy but satisfying meal eaten at long tables, at each of which six to twelve men could be seated. CCC food was plain, nourishing, and served in large quantities. A typical breakfast could consist of stewed prunes, cereal, ham and eggs, coffee, and milk.  Fechner once described camp food as "wholesome, palatable and of the variety that sticks to the ribs," and the monthly camp food order would seem to bear this out. Typical commodities purchased included bacon, beans, beef, butter, cheese, chicken, eggs, flour, lard, milk, onions, pork, potatoes, rice, sugar, syrup, apples, baking powder, cinnamon, cocoa, coffee, flavoring extract, corn, macaroni, peaches, peas, pepper, pickles, pineapple, prunes, rolled oats, salt, tea, tomatoes, and vinegar.  CCC food was not perhaps prepared according to the best French cuisine, but it was usually well-balanced and nourishing.
