As I dimly recall the French cleric from the early Middle Ages before there actually was a France who argued passionately that though angels are bodiless still they must eat because no-one can live in the perfect bliss of the Divine Light without eating. "And if they cannot eat the gross food of this earth I am convinced they eat each other, purely for the pleasure of it" which in this day and age is distinct don't-go-there territory.
