      Early on in the space program they ate regular food. Here's a video of Buzz Aldrin, on Apollo 11 in 1969, making a deviled ham sandwich. He used a regular slice of bread and a can of deviled ham.

        Here's a link to info about a BBQ rub that NASA used on the last Space Shuttle flight (STS-135 in July 2011). Also links to the NASA BBQ rub recipe.

        I've made the NASA BBQ rub, and it's a real keeper. Really good on slow cooker meat, also.
