    As far as the Hobbit goes, that's literature. don't be dissin' literature, not ever.
    Yeah, I've always considered Pemmican to be the paleo version of Lembas bread.

    Pemmican, fat bread and Larabars, would make the perfect hiking kit.

    It was my understanding that the LOTR series of books was a commentary on industrialization. Naturally one would look to the pastoral and agricultural good old days as the better days. Even the Bible sings praises to the pastoral good old days. This is all not much different from us who look all the way back to the paleolithic good old days. Plus there's a long long long long history of wolves and bears being the bad guys in fairy tales.

    Geri and Freki, the war-worn one [Odin] feeds,
    that Host-father [Odin] famed of old;
    but on wine alone, weapon-fine, Odin ever lives.

    It also bears repeating that Tolkien took liberties with the Old Norse legends that he derived inspiration from... much like Marvel's version of Thor.

    Yeah, Odin didn't eat food, but he gave all his food to his wolves and since wolves are carnivores, that means they must have served a primarily meat based menu at Valhalla.

    It wasn't a commentary on anything, Tolkien made it clear that there was no allegory in the LOTR, it's all explained in the forward or introduction or something.

    From the Grimnismal:
    They [the Einherjar] feast from Shrmnir (here described as a boar), and that this beast is cooked every day and is again whole every night.

    Pork was fed to the chosen warriors... Greedy and Ravenous (Geri and Freki) were fed "Ygg's Barley" which was a poetic kenning for the bodies of the slain.
