Shama-il Tirmidhi Chapter 025, Hadith Number 002 (144).

Nu'maan bin Bashir Radiyallahu 'Anhu says: "Are you not in the luxuries of eating and drinking. Whereas I have seen Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam not having ordinary types of dates to full his stomach".

Commentary.
The Sahaabi's intention is to persuade one to follow the simple life of Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam and that one lives in this world for only a short period. When in the hadith it is denied that Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam did not have ordinary dates to fill his stomach then what about bread and curry?
