Q: Покажите мне примеры предложений с i am eating food.
A: I can’t think of any but it’s not very natural to say I am eating food, it’s better to say I’m eating, when you say “I’m eating” it implies that you are eating food. You only say what you are eating if it’s an specific food, like “I’m eating potatoes”. Or if you are trying to say things like “I don’t eat food, I eat liars” which is figuratively speaking, or “I don’t eat lettuce I eat food” implying that you think lettuce is not a food. I don’t know if I’m making sense, if you have any questions please feel free to ask me :)
