Egyptians had a basic diet of bread and beer. Sounds funny i know! The rich and the poor had about the same diet except, the rich usally drank more wine than beer because it was more elegant. Along with bread and beer they had vegetables just like us today. Most commom ones were lettuce, cabbages and cucumbers. Sounds just like pretty much so far right. They also enjoyed dessert. They would have almonds, figs, dates, grapes, and other nuts.
