The diet changes with the seasons. Nobody likes to spend a lot of time cooking in the hot weather, so most of this food was fairly instant. In the winter there will be more long cooking of soups and stews and baking.

I also ate probably 2 snacks a day, between breakfast and lunch, and lunch and dinner. They were mostly things, like a piece of fresh fruit, a handful of nuts or a natural (sugar free) bar.
