The Olympics (still going today) was super important to the Greeks. They did many sport. After they ran, jumped, swam. They was very famished. They went home and ate lots of food. The food they ate is similar to the food that we eat today. They ate cheese from goat and fish and arugula and asparagus and bulbs. They also ate cabbage and apples and figs and bird and chicken and much more.The land wasn't fertile. So they made the land fertile with irrigation.. Meat was eaten rarely but was used as religious sacrifice. The poor never ate meat except on religious festival. The cows and pigs were burned for the Gods and goddesses. Then they would hand out the meat to the people. Wine was the main drink they drank.They rarely drank milk but they used it to make cheese. They didn’t have eating utensils so they used their hands.
