Food & Drink
The Ancient Egyptians ate lots of food that we eat today. They also ate
some things that we think are a little unpleasant.
Here is what a menu would look like in Ancient Egypt.

Everybody ( even children) drank barley beer. Wine was usually reserved for noblemen and richer folk. Water could be gotten anywhere (duh) and milk was common, too. For the poorer people, fish was a substitute for beef, and almost everybody ate fruits and vegetables. Cheese, bread, and lentils were more common than waterfowl and nuts (especially for the poor.) Toppings were used to make bread sweeter, and to add flavor.
