Please correct the following sentences:

Okay, if you want to give me a treat, I would take it, only if you are giving it to me out of friendship/goodwill. And mind you, right now I'm feeling so hungry that, allegorically speaking, I could eat a horse.

If I were going to insist on calling attention to the fact that "eat a horse" is not literal, I might say

so hungry that I could eat a proverbial horse.

But my preference is to leave it out:

so hungry that I could eat a horse.
