What Would Jesus Eat?

I don't think Jesus liked figs, so he probably wouldn't eat them. I also think that Jesus would not eat apples. I think that Jesus would like to chow down on one of the two versions of Pope Francis molded in mozzarella, one hatted and one without.

Others think differently:

In fact, because Jesus and people around Him ate a mostly plant-based diet with little red meat, there’s little mention of “constipation” in the bible.
Over the last several years, with the increasing interest in eating and living healthier, the question about what Jesus might have eaten has become a popular topic of speculation.
What Did Jesus Eat? Popular Bible Foods in the Day of Jesus
I do believe eating ham, bacon, or other foods that the Jews restricted were frequently unhealthy but we cannot judge people by what they eat but what comes out of their mouth is the most important thing.
On last week’s 700 Club, Pat Robertson announced that low-carb diets “violate the principles that God set down.” Finally, something Pat Robertson and I can agree on. According to Robertson—not a registered dietician—low carb diets “build up clinkers” and “you get swollen joints, you get gout.”  The principle behind this, he adds, is that “carbs are the fire that burn everything completely.” Like napalm or the wrath of God, but for your digestive system.
The ABC's of the "What Would Jesus Eat?" Diet
Most recently a new fad diet (or diet trend) has come to my attention: "What Would Jesus Eat." As with all fad diets there is promise of quick weight loss and reduced physical signs of disease.  However, this diet may actually have some basis of truth.
But let us always remember to view our diets with the goal and from the vantage point of holistic health – what is good for body, mind and soul. Even Jesus Himself said, “Man shall not live on bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”
What Would Jesus Eat?
Meals were a sacred time when God’s presence was awaited and welcomed in every meal. The people recognized that although they had earned their daily bread, God still gave them all they had. Fellowship in a meal was always fellowship before God.
What would Jesus eat?
"I thought I'd go back to the training manual -- the Bible -- and see what Jesus ate. Lo and behold, Jesus ate the healthiest diet ever developed, the Mediterranean diet."

What Would Jesus Eat? Do Christian Weight Loss Programs Really Work?
"Slim is how God meant us to be," reasons Judy Halliday, founder of Thin Within, a "grace-oriented" approach to weight loss. Halliday claims to have organized over 170 support groups around the world. Her program attempts to show people "how to reconnect with God and achieve the weight that God meant for them to be."
Etc. Etc. Etc.

You may ask yourself: Which is more important? What would Jesus do? OR What would Jesus eat? I don't know.

Some internet searchers get very specific about what Jesus might eat. They want to know what he would eat for breakfast, or what he would eat today, or what he would eat for Easter.

I don't understand this curiosity. Since Jesus is God, he doesn't need to eat.

I do know that it's really weird that Catholics eat Jesus.
