just so you're aware of how it works.. and this is why I love this cosmology:
"Humans are said to have originally had many of the powers of the devas: not requiring food, the ability to fly through the air, and shining by their own light. Over time they began to eat solid foods, their bodies became coarser and their powers disappeared."
ie. eating is actually unnecessary for devas, and brings them closer to being humans than pseudo-gods.
