Mostly cereal grains. Agriculture was already a part of the lives of Romans as they have learnt to cultivate crops and store them for harder times. So bread would have been the daily staple. Those who are slightly better off ate a good supply of vegetables (lettuce was especially popular) and also made soups! However, meat was strictly reserved for the wealthy and powerful. Those who want meat need to go out and hunt on their own for most parts. This website will help you understand about the Roman meal!
