Mesopotamians ate bread and drank beer! They also ate many of the same meats ad vegetables we do. Here are some links: http://www.digonsite.com/drdig/neareast/19.html Here is another link, which lists the foods they ate as: were barley, wheat and millet; chick peas, lentils and beans; onions, garlic and leeks; cucumbers, cress, mustard and fresh green lettuce. http://www.foodtimeline.org/foodfaq3.html#mesopotamia

Here's a link that could be of help to you.  It lists quite a few kinds of food that were eaten in ancient Mesopotamia.

As you can see, many of the things that were eaten in that time are similar to what is eaten in the region today.  For example, they ate a lot of chickpeas and lentils and beans.  These are still staples today.
