Food is an important part of a balanced diet.
- Fran Lebowitz
In the time period I play in, people ate Real Food. As a rule, it was fresh, it was seasonal, it was preserved for the winter in natural ways. It didn't have bar-codes or labels or advertising or wild nutritional claims. Sugar, maple syrup, and honey were condiments. Meat was lean and not "enhanced" with 15 per cent broth. Vegetables were home grown or local. Drinks were water, juice, switchel, cider, flip, wine... but not carbonated chemicals and HFCS. I want food like that in the 21st Century.
