Elizabethan.org has several pages up on what "we" eat. I'm going to assume that "we" means "people of Elizabethan society" given the context. The information is quite extensive, including information on how things were measured, when and what meals were eaten, and so on.
Over at a site called Seat of Mars you can actually buy Elizabethan food for yourself. I may have to try that. "Mixed sweet spiced nuts" sounds good.
