Yeah, but Jesus did say "Man cannot live by beer alone"...
Oh wait, He said "bread", bread, not beer lol.
According to the sages, man was initially vegetarian, this was true for Adam and his descendants according to the orthodox sources.
[ You can't live the law, without the love which inspired it. This is *part* of the reason why bread and wine are used in communion to symbolize balance between the extremes.

I have always been intrigued by the symbology of the eating of the fruit, yet can never quite pin it down.

What if the tree of Knowledge was SEX, middle of the garden being the genitals and they saw them and touched them, got excited and felt guilty and they covered up?

First of all... it was the tree of knowledge (of good and evil). Lot's of people forget that. I't only when you have the concept of good and evil that sin can exist. It's rather existentially simple.
This is the the original sin, to allow judgement of good or evil.
