the colour wasn't even that diverse either.but on the other hand... the wealthy woman's clothing was more appealing to the eye . and it had some contrast as well.

and rickets). arts and entertainment The diet of noble families were large and highly spiced. Spices were cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, saffron, cardamon, coriander.
Bread was popular especially manchet made from wheat flour.
Many kinds of meat were available to a wealthy family. If they lived close to freshwater or river, they could consume a lot of fish.
Rich families never had dairy products because they were never considered important except cheese.
Little fresh fruits were eaten but most of the time they were served in pies and preserved in honey.
Small amounts of vegetables were used for meals and these were only onion, leeks and garlics.
The people of medieval times loved to drink and the
rich always drank various types of wine. The Upper Class Diet The Lower Class always consumed what they had grown at home. They couldn't afford spices and meat. However they didn't have permission to hunt for animals as it would have resulted in punishments.
They normally had rye or barley bread, dairy products, meat and fish if they were lucky.
Pottage was another usual meal they had which was a thick soup consisted of onions, cabbage, garlic, nuts, berries, leeks, spinach and parsley.
