What Did Ancient Egyptians Really Eat?

… out the relative amounts of the different foods they ate. Was their daily bread really daily? Did they binge on eggPlants and garlic? Why didn’t someone spear a fish? A French research team figured out that by looking at the carbon atoms in mummies that had lived in Egypt between 3500 B.C. and 600 A.D. you could find out what they ate.
