Depends on what you ate...meats take 1-3 hrs to digest, depending on how they were cooked and how much meat you ate and whether it was steak of fowl,etc; fruits and vegetables digest fairly fast :30 - 1 hr.
After chewing, swallowing and brief breakdown of food, it goes to the small intestine where most absorption of nutrients (OR GARBAGE DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU ATE) takes place. The small intestine is only small in that it is narrower than the colon but it is very, very long..digestion starts with chewing..
