Isn't the cause of Islam to also nourish it's most esheemed prophet?

I got a hard time convincing myself that Mohammed who:

1. led an army of 30.000

2. Ordered plundering

3. Ordered beheadings

4. had many wives

5. Was the leading authority of a religion of many

Wasn't able to eat...

But it is possible that when his faith only had but 5 followers or so, he could have been facing famine. But afterwards? I doubt it strongly. though as I'm not all knowing, i'll try to keep an open mind and will be awaiting your response with texts and/or weblinks stating otherwise.
