    Veda says that food is God
    Annashravanaat dehopyaatmaa tat vishishte sprashtum .

    (Veda says that even the gross body constituted by food is God in human incarnation. The body can be also called as soul).

    Veda says that food is God. Food indicates gross body, which can be also called as soul or Atman. Here the context is human incarnation. God charges not only the soul but also the body if required for the devotees wishing to touch God. The entry of God, through a medium into this world is only to satisfy the desire of intensive devotees. The word food indicates gross body, which is also greatest among the materialized and designed items of the creation. Hence, it can be called as Brahman or greatest in this sense also. Even in human incarnation, the gross body denoted by Brahman as greatest item also looks like any other gross body since God in it is not grasped.
