The Veggie Way - A vanilla friendly way to get higher quality food without killing.

I love playing Minecraft, but killing cows, sheep, pigs, and chickens for food always leaves me feeling a little guilty.  Why doesn't Minecraft give you a way to craft high nutrition foods without resorting to eating cooked animal flesh?

The Veggie Way solves that problem!  

Note: There is a vegan option for protein with Red Quinoa!

By using the bounty of nature (apples, carrots, beets, etc.) and farm-fresh eggs and milk for some protein, you can now create high nutrition foods. 

Superfood drinks and bars are as good as vanilla cooked meats.

Here is how it works:

- Collect some Drying Agent from from sand with a Hand Rake, its silicate from millions of years of volcanic dust in the soil (20% chance)

- Red Quinoa, Corn,Lentil, and Soybean Seeds drop from dirt and grass blocks with a Hand Rake (10% chance), plant on farmland to grow crops

- Raise some chickens to get eggs or grow some Red Quinoa, Lentil or Soybean - used to craft protein powder

- Farm some carrots - used to craft vitamin powder

- Farm some apples or beets - used to craft fructose powder

- Farm some Wheat - used to craft wheatgerm powder

- Farm some Cocoa Beans - used to make caffeine powder

- Farm some potatoes or corn - used to craft carb powder

- Keep a cow around because you will need some.milk [optional]

With these basic ingredients, you can start making drinks and bars (hunger and saturation values can be adjusted in the config file)

- Energy Drink restores (4) hunger

- Energy Bar- restores (5) hunger

- Superfood Shake - restores (7) hunger

- Superfood Smoothie- restores (7) hunger (vegan option)

- Superfood Bar - restores (8) hunger
