— one may abide by the common notion that central to eating is a need to subside hunger
— one may otherwise eat, not merely in order to escape starvation, or be nourished and avoid ailments but rather in pursuit of the joy in eating, in all its stages
The latter goes well with either way of thinking and living in respect to the existence of a god.
Living in the conviction that there is a higher being at our disposal to rely upon, the depth with which we understand and intake, physically and non-physically, is imperative or at least practical and logical. Paying close attention to the details surrounding eating, goes perfectly hand in hand with any genuine desire to live and believe with the best available understanding. That very understanding may be necessary and helpful in solidifying one’s belief in god, while it may equally solidify one’s conviction of god’s absence.
