Foods typically eaten in Africa are foods that can be grown locally.
Because meat is expensive, it is considered to be a novelty food in many
parts of Africa, specifically Sub- Sahara Africa. A typical breakfast will
consist of grains, especially curds and whey. For lunch and dinner
vegetables and fruits such as peas, beans, yams, plantain, banana, and
watermelon are widely consumed. Stews using broth made of starch-based
products are made with vegetables and meat when it is available. Fish is
also used in a verity of dishes.
