The ancient Egyptian diet was mainly centered around the Nile. The rich farmland was due to the soil that the Nile carried downstream every year. The farmland provided wheat practically year round.
The normal breakfast for an ancient Egyptian was a little bread and whatever was left over from the last night's dinner. The lunch was whatever they could carry with them to work for that day. Their dinner was the most important and largest meal of the day. It often consisted of barley bread, a meat (gazelle, fish, salted waterfowl, roast waterfowl), fruit (dates, figs), and a drink (barley beer, wine, or water).
Their clothing was normally a kilt made of coarse or soft linen. They wore an eye makeup called kohl; it was like eye shadow, just worn a lot heavier. Their sandals were made of everything from palm fronds to soft leather.
were made of mud bricks because wood was so rare. The richest people used
wood for there sarcophaguses but it was not used for many other things.
