The Greek had much different eating habits than we do now, they ate very healthy. Their diet consisted of beans, many forms of bread,and olives.
Their meals were cooked over an open fire outside. They liked to have wine with their food and often grew the wine grapes in their own back-yard. They had such a great taste for wine that they have a wine god that you can find out about on our gods page. Some of their food was imported from Egypt, like flour.
