Klingons sure love their gagh. It seems like they're eating the creepy-crawlies every time we see Klingon food. Even if there are other Klingon foods, it raises the question: Does gagh have all of the nutrients that an adult Klingon needs? Can one live on gagh alone, without supplementation from other foods?

Obviously, you'll need a warrior's drink to wash them down, like blood wine or prune juice. You can disregard that for the purposes of this question.

  • This seems like you're just asking for speculation. There is no official answer. – David Johnston Feb 14 '19 at 6:39

    Or they're asking because they don't know if there is an official answer and would like to find out. – Josh Feb 14 '19 at 8:14
  • It wouldn't surprise me if it has no nutritional value at all and Klingons just eat it as a 'battle' to finish the huge plateful and keep it down... – user107907 Feb 14 '19 at 9:09

    My research for the question revealed at least two books on Klingon food. Because I don't own either book, I don't know if they would help to answer the question, nor do I know how "official" these books are. But they are plausible sources for an answer to the question. – DrSheldon Feb 14 '19 at 13:59

    ...part of this complete breakfast? – Dima Feb 14 '19 at 22:39

I am fairly certain there is no canon answer, with that being said it is doubtful that a single food could contain everything a being needs.

While gagh is pretty much ubiquitous when we see Klingon food this is most likely because gagh is a staple food like rice or corn to humans and we see or hear about a good number of other Klingon food.
