    Re: I have my food.

    In the first one you have your food in your possession now. In the second one, you have eaten it.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Bhaisahab has given you the answer but please note my corrections to your punctuation and spacing above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Is "both" redundant here or is it wrong?

    You'd use both to show a common link between the two sentences:

    Both of your sentences are about food.
