Spartan Warriors trained hard every day to achieve virtue, develop stamina, and secure battle superiority. In times of peace and war, their eating habits were ruled by frugality. For breakfast, which was their main meal, they usually preferred foods with invigorating properties like hazelnuts, but they also munched on sweet carob pods.
After the victorious (for the Greeks) Battle of Plataea, the Spartan Commander-in-Chief Pausanias entered the campaign tent of Mardonius and, impressed by the wealth, refined decorations, and ornaments therein, ordered the Persian cooks to prepare a meal, as elaborate as the one they offered their master. Upon the sight of tables brimming with exotic delicacies, Pausanias ordered his cooks to prepare a frugal Spartan meal. Once all had been prepared, he called for his Greek commanders and with the tables laden with extravagant Persian treats in full view, remarked jokingly “Greeks, I ordered you here to show you the stupidity of the Medean ruler, who dines in luxury every day and campaigned against us to seize our poverty.”
