Abstract: Understanding the formation and evolution of alimentary consumption patterns requires a broad and multidimensional approach. Foods originate either from plants and animals, representing the living processes, or agriculture and industry, representing the non-living processes, and in these forms they play their biological role. Additionally, the consumption of foods has multiple consequences (social, economic, health, etc.) on an individual level as well as on a wider collective level. In this essay we attempt to describe alimentary consumption patterns in Greece (1957-2005) from three different dimensions: a natural dimension (animal or plant origin), a technical one (agricultural or industrial origin) and finally, a biological one (nutritional properties). The description, which we will use as the foundation to create an interpretative theory, is done through charts and tables, based on numerical indicators that are deduced from simple illustrative functions. Tables used in the present paper are either simple or double-entry and we present spreading diagrams as well.
