Foods in the Bible


The Dinner Party thread has my stomach growling an hour before dinner! So I’m taking it out on you. :wink:

I was wondering if anyone knew of the foods referenced in the Bible (prefer New Testament).

I am a new convert and have decided that on Sundays I’d like to eat light meals after the Eucarist (out of respect for the gift of the Eucarist and to symbolize that after receiving the Lord we shall “hunger no more”).

So I’d like to see if there were any other foods mentioned in the Bible that I could eat on Sundays.


Fish and honey and figs and barley and lamb and herbs and onions (those are a few that come to mind).
