The Ancient Romans have provided Britain with many things, such as roads and reading.
They also led the way in living in towns and cities, but probably more importantly, they showed us a healthy diet.
We’re not talking about lavish banquets of the wealthy, but the diets of everyday folk who ate fresh fruits, vegetables, and plenty of fish.
Today most of us munch a sandwich at out desks which more often than not do little more than stave off hunger. This type of on-the-go lunch rarely has much nutritional goodness, leaving us feeling sluggish and brain-fogged in the afternoons. However, if you eat like the Ancient Romans you’ll find that you will be looking after your body and mind.
Packed with essential vitamins, proteins, fiber and monounsaturated fats, an Ancient Roman lunch will not only make you feel fuller for longer, making you less likely to get the mid-afternoon munchies, it can help lower cholesterol levels, aid to help preventing colds and improve your overall health and well-being.
Ancient Roman lunches aren’t complex affairs, they simply mean adjusting your shopping list to include vitamin rich foods, olive oil, fish, nuts, herbs, and spices.
Take a look at our Ancient Roman guide and start making delicious, nutritious lunches and healthy snacks to replace your usual soggy sandwich and you’ll soon be on your way to a far healthier diet.
