The knights ate in pairs and were told to “study the other more closely” to make sure that neither was eating more than his share—and were also eating enough. They only ate meat three times a week and on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, the knights ate vegetable-filled meals and bread. They some ate a thick soup made of oats or vegetables and they grew fruits in their gardens. On Fridays, they ate no eggs, milk or animal products. They were allowed to drink wine, but not much, and it was diluted.
