When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” – Luke 24:30-32 (NIV)

Sometimes it’s a matter of quenching thirst; and sometimes, hunger.
Sometimes, while seemingly attending to the stomach, the heart was being the most fed.

For they know that the Son of God is come, and hath given them an Understanding, that they know him that is true, and they are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ; this is the true God, and eternal Life. (Elizabeth Bathurst, 1655?-1685)
