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
A few crops to grow for your protein needs:
