The Thracians were famous warriors, wonderful riders and skillful hunters. High stature and muscular body are achieved not only with hard training, but also with the help of quality food. Quality food in these lands has always been in abundance, and even in these ancient times.
The Thracians owned huge herds of horses, goats, sheep, cattle … Pigs were raised in their lands, the forests were full of game, the rivers were full of fish. Our ancestors also had fresh cow’s, sheep’s and goat’s milk, cheese, cottage cheese, and yogurt were also known to the Thracians. In ancient times, hunting was not just fun, but also a way to supplement the diet with foods rich in protein (game meat). The Thracian men also went wild boar hunting and wild bulls hunting. The Thracians enriched their diet with various nuts and fruits – hazelnuts, figs, apples, pears, cherries, plums, raspberries, blackberries. Olives, lemons, pistachios also grew in their territories near the Aegean Sea.
No wonder that the traditional food on this part of the Balkans and the diet of today’s people, adhering to the principles of healthy eating, largely overlap with that of the ancient Thracians.
