Food & Feasts BY: Brendan Duffy

During the Elizabethan time period common people ate in excessive abundance. Most people ate very frequently, at times more than is suitable (Weatherly 23).

Wealthy people would drink wine and ale while the lower class would just drink ale. Water was not consumed because there was no way it could be purified (Elizabethan England Life).

The diet of people in the sixteenth century was dull, mostly overcome by cereals, beans, and peas. Many of the people during the elizabethan era followed religous rules of fasting (Fooles 13).
