عن أَببي جُحَيْفَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنهٌ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: لاَ آكُلُ مُتَّكِئًا (البخاري رقم 5398)

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ: مَا عَابَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ طَعَامًا قَطُّ، إِنِ اشْتَهَاهُ أَكَلَهُ، وَإِنْ كَرِهَهُ تَرَكَهُ (البخاري رقم 5409)
