Just as it is impossible for any two human beings to eat exactly the same quantity and quality of foods, no two Gaumata's are the same in their dietary preferences. What and how much each Gaumata eats is a function of a variety of factors that includes her current health, age, etc. However, in general, Gaumatas need a daily diet of 30-40 Kg of foods on average. In ancient times, Gaumatas had access to a wide and rich variety of dense green forests and grasslands to feed on. Much of this vegetation was inaccessible to human beings as we cannot easily digest plant foods like grass, plant stems, roots, etc. But through Her milk, these nutrients also became available to us. Ancient grazing fields also had plants of medicinal values, which Gaumata would feed on depending upon Her intuition and perception.
