Meat: Wealthy peopled tended to eat more meat than the average Egyptian. Less fortunate people dined on fish and legumes.

Eggs are included here, however they were somewhat uncommon. Any eggs eaten would have been from geese, ducks or certain birds, but not chickens. Chickens were unknown in ancient Egypt until very late.


Milk: Given the Egyptian heat, milk had to be consumed shortly after milking or it would spoil. Milk, therefore, was made into cheeses and fermented products like yoghurt.
