I don't know if I have come across what we will eat according to scripture, but what I saw when I saw heaven was beyond words and yet even trying to describe it in human words is like trying to see the entire universe at once with the human eye.
Imagine if you will entering a feild of grass that was so soft and silky under your feet decorated with the deepest green you can imagine covered with all kindfs of things of nature, flowers trees birds that glowed as if they were lightning bugs berries everywhere free for the picking streams of golden rivers of honey and upon the trees being fruits of all kinds both known and unknown to this world yet you dare not eat them because you know even a single drop of their juices and you would never crave anything on this earth again.
Imagine also a vast table set up as if you entered a fantasy realm of kingship the most amazing foods and drinks you can think of, like thinking of any kind of food you possibly can and imagining the tatse and texture of them how your tastebuds might water just thinking of them and then times that by a thousand and not just because that what people say all the time, like literally a thousand making your taste buds feel like they will jump right out of your mouth.

Even just water itself far more delightful and satisfying than anything you will ever taste here, good luck drinking water again if you come back. The water itself was shining as if it was so pure so clean so full of life that you can't take your eyes off it your mouth begins to water just looking and if you tasted it you feel the abundance of life in it overflowing even just a small drop would do that.
This is merely a very poor description of it all and trust me there is a reason why there are things we are not to see and experience in heaven if I wasn't there in spirit alone I would not have the self control to taste everything no person would be able to.
I wish I had the words to explain and describe the things there to give it justice I mean my mouth waters sometimes just remembering it.

Whether people believe this or not or whether it is according to scripture to them or not I leave to them to decide but wow I am diabetic and cannpot enjoy most things in this world as it is but when I saw all this I just didn't care anymore in the presence of all that food everything at that moment on this earth was absolute garbage like I would never defile my taste buds with this world best food.

Of course being here again now obviously that changed but wow I am so excited now

I don't know what people are eating and drinking in Heaven, but I do know
what Christ will be eating and drinking in the kingdom of God.

1) He will be imbibing ordinary beverages.

Matt 26:29 . . I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now
on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father's kingdom.

2) He will be dining upon ordinary foods.

Luke 22:15-16 . . I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you
before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in
the kingdom of God.

3) Christ's followers will be eating and drinking the same food and beverage
as his.

Luke 22:28-30 . . You are those who have stood by me in my trials. And I
confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, so that
you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom

BTW: According to John 3:3-12, the kingdom of God is an "earthly thing"
rather than Heavenly.

Looks like the tree of life and the fruit, river of life for water, fish, fishermen, and fishing nets?

Revelation 22:1-2KJV
22 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.
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.

Ezekiel 47:9-12KJV
9 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.
10 And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.
11 But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not be healed; they shall be given to salt.
12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

We will not be eating anything according to scripture because we will not be needing any food to keep a body of flesh going and we will never stay in heaven but for a short time when we will return to a new rebuilt earth. The leaves of the Tree of Life are for the healing nations outside of the city of New Jerusalem.

I believe your response is in error, Ezekiel below clearly teaches the fruit of the tree(s) is for (MEAT)

That means to (EAT)

Ezekiel 47:9-12KJV
9 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.
10 And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.
11 But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not be healed; they shall be given to salt.
12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine

It would seem the wage of sin is death . If you do not work you will no eat if you do not eat you will die . It will not be established in the new order. Food for the belly, belly for food both will perish. No one will starve to death.

... I am diabetic and cannot enjoy most things in this world as it is ...
You can be healed, even if it is type I (see testimony of Eric Wilson of Isaiah Ministries, see Dragon Revealed Down Under), but if Type II, etc:

When Jesus was raised, and had His glorified body, was it not of actual "flesh and bones" (Luke 24:39) of an immortal man?

Who said he was raised in a glorified body? No man has received it .

As sons of God we are not what we will be which is neither male or female. Jew nor gentile. But look to a perfect new creation not made up of the corruptible things of this world .(flesh and blood)

Because of that we know no man after flesh the same applied to Jesus .When he disappeared out of sight that window of opportunity vanished .We know him that way no more forever more.

The one time demonstration of him and the father working is over. we walk by faith the unseen eternal not after what they eyes see the temporal thing of mankind God is not a man.

2 Corinthians 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

We follow after the foot steps of Jesus the Son of man the prophet and apostle who did not come to do his own will of the corrupted flesh, but the eternal will of the father .

And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect. Hebrews 11:39-40

When our Savior was resurrected, one woman , when attempting to touch Him was commanded not to touch Him for He was not yet glorified.. It was, apparently, a process continual until He ascended. It is in the Book.

Amen

It would seem he used that parable. Who touched me? (a word that virtue goes out). Another way of lettings us know that kind of intimacy' will not come while we remain in our corrupted bodies of dead flesh . looking ahead to the commencement of the wedding in the new heavens and earth. As you did say: a process continual until He ascended.

I have been praying and waiting but even if I am not so be it if it is God's will then I have nothing against it, at the very least it has taught me restraint

BTW

According to John 3:3-12 no one can see the kingdom of God unless they have been born of spirit and are no longer earthly.

So.
Maybe you do not understand what "if I have told you earthly things" means as well as you think you do.

Jesus Christ after the resurrection had a glorified body of flesh and bone, Jesus was the "First Fruit" of the resurrection.

This body wasn't bound by the physical world, as it appeared while the doors were closed, and vanished out of sight, this body ate fish and honeycomb.

Excellent. Let's dive into scripture, and really explore the wonders of what God hath prepared for those who love Him! God has listed many things in scripture which we shall partake of as food then!

Jesus was raised in glory, meaning a glorified body of flesh and bones. The glory of the crown was granted later (Psalms 24), as it shall also be for the saints. They shall be resurrected with glorified bodies (1 Cor. 15:43, etc), then later crowned by Jesus (2 Timothy 4:8).
Rom_6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.​
1Co_15:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:​
1Pe_1:21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.​

Jesus refused to receive the homage of his people until he knew that his sacrifice had been accepted by the Father, and until he had received the assurance from God himself that his atonement for the sins of his people had been full and ample, that through his blood they might gain eternal life. Jesus immediately ascended to Heaven and presented himself before the throne of God, showing the marks of shame and cruelty upon his brow, his hands and feet. But he refused to receive the coronet of glory, and the royal robe, and he also refused the adoration of the angels as he had refused the homage of Mary, until the Father signified that his offering was accepted.

See

Calvary:

Psa_116:14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.​
Psa_116:18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,​
Ascension that first [day] of the week to Heaven (see Psalms 24):
Psa_61:5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.​

I'm really thinking Pizza, Ice Cream, and Chocolate. And God will make them as healthy as broccoli and lima beans!
