I always think of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb when this question is brought up.  We won't need food for our bodies to sustain life as we do down here, but I somehow think dining with Jesus and the saints will just be another aspect of heaven to enjoy.  We may be served all of the fruits and vegetables that God placed in the Garden of Eden to please our palates.  ::yummy::

Rev. 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
Rev. 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life,
        which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month:
        and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

2590. karpo/ß karpos, kar-pos´; probably from the base of 726; fruit (as plucked), literally or figuratively: — fruit.

Rev. 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
Rev. 22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
Rev. 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

Rev. 22:6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true:
        and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel
        to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
Rev. 22:7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

3581. Aj;Ok koach, ko´-akh; or (Dan. 11:6) Ajwø;k kowach, ko´-akh; from an unused root meaning to be firm; vigor, literally (force, in a good or a bad sense) or figuratively (capacity, means, produce); also (from its hardiness) a large lizard:—ability, able, chameleon, force, fruits, might, power(-ful), strength, substance, wealth.
You forgot to say which word in the text this translation is for.  Fruits?  But that's karpos...

Being diabetic,I'm looking forward to use my new body for about 200 years just eating  chocolate....Jams...Honey with cone...buttered bisquits...Coconut cream pie...homemade ice cream....banana pudding...and the next 200 years eating ribeye steaks with buttered baked potato's....hot rolls..with fried chicken and cream potato's full of butter for dessert ....

Don't care about the streets whether they are gold or not just so they lead to food....

God bless,Peck

Is the Kingdom of God spoken in Romans 14:17 just referring to heaven here?

People eat and drink when they are neither hungry or thirsty.

No way of knowing for sure it. Any answer to this is speculation on what we gather from scripture but could not be given all that is needed to know completely. does it really matter?
