Poor people would eat bread with dried food such as olives, potatoes and tomatoes, hardly any meat. The aristocrat had access to sugar and coffee. Jokes aside, I have no idea but I want to bump the thread because I'm interested as well.
They had tons of grain imported from Egypt, sometimes paid for by politicians seeking popularity, poor plebeians might eat nothing but bread provided by the state.
Alternating legumes and grain could be practiced in some areas so plebs would often eat puls, a kind of pottage/porridge like that eaten by medieval peasants, made by mashing up grain, beans, peas, herbs and seasonal vegetables.
