If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit or water, I will accept it (Bhagavad-gītā 9.26).

Here the connection is being made between food and bhakti. There is another way of saying that: connection is being made between food and the Lord and the connection is bhakti. One could say, “Well, I have lots of bhakti, lots of devotion for the Lord, so much that I don’t even need to offer food. I just offer my love, I just offer my prayers. It says here, and Prabhupada says that Krishna eats through the sound so I don’t really need to offer something physical, I’ll just make a nice prayer and Krishna will hear that and through that He will eat.” But Krishna is more clever than that. He’ll know you are cheating.

The King said: “To transgress the laws of respectful behavior toward the brāhmaṇas is certainly a great offense. On the other hand, if one does not observe the breaking of the fast within the time of Dvādaśī, there is a flaw in one’s observance of the vow. Therefore, O brāhmaṇas, if you think that it will be auspicious and not irreligious, I shall break the fast by drinking water.” In this way, after consulting with the brāhmaṇas, the King reached this decision, for according to brahminical opinion, drinking water may be accepted as eating and also as not eating.Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 9.4.39-40
