Food is an essential item in Minecraft. Unless players always play on the Peaceful difficulty, their hunger level will decrease continuously. That means they can’t sprint and they’ll end up losing all but half a heart. Low hunger also removes the restoration of health. Hunger is a real problem in Minecraft, and the 1.19 update hasn’t changed that.
That’s why it’s incredibly important to always have food with you. Crafters who go everywhere without food are just asking for trouble. However, not all foods are created equally well. Some of them, like glistening melons, suspect stew, and golden apples, are expensive to make and hard to come by. These are the best food items in Minecraft 1.19 that are super easy to get and also useful.
Minecraft Foods That Are Easy To Get And Very Convenient
5) Cooked salmon
Cooked salmon has slightly better hunger rates than its underwater counterpart, cod (other fish cannot be eaten or only give the poison effect). It restores six hunger points and has a saturation of 9.6. It is much cheaper than cod and is also quite common, even though cod is easier to come across more often.
Fishing is not very difficult and fish can be killed by hitting them. The only downside is that Fire Aspect can’t automatically cook them because they are underwater.
4) Boiled mutton
Mutton is a strong food source, even if it is the worst of the three main meats. Despite being lower than chicken, steak and chops, it still has a saturation of 9.6 and recovers six hunger points, both good numbers.
Sheep are also common, making this a fairly easy item to get. Sheep are everywhere, and they are also quite easy to kill. Mutton also doesn’t need a lot of coal to cook or stay in the oven.
3) Boiled chicken
Cooked chicken is an excellent food. It recovers six hunger points and has a solid saturation of 7.8. Chickens are quite easy to find as they usually spawn in groups and in different biomes. What makes chicken one of the least difficult items to get in Minecraft is the fact that they are so easy to kill.
Just two hits with an empty hand will kill them, which is far less than any other food source in the game.
Cooked steak is one of the easiest and best food sources to get. It can be boiled, but if you kill a cow with an enchanted sword with fire aspect, it will fall immediately. But even if players don’t have Fire Aspect, it’s still quite easy to get, requiring only a short time in the smoker/oven and a little bit of coal to cook.
What makes steak so good is that it restores four hunger points and a whopping 12.8 points of satiety, the most in-game among regular foods (no golden carrots, soups, etc.)
1) Cooked pork chop
The best cooked food item in Minecraft has to be cooked pork chop. It’s actually the fourth best food item overall, with just a whole cake, suspect stew, and rabbit stew in terms of hunger recovery. Fortunately, it is also very easy to get. Pigs roam the world freely and quite often. They are also no challenge to kill.
One porkchop restores four hunger streaks and also has a saturation of 12.8, which is also among the best in the game. Pigs can be reared with carrots and are an easy source of chops.
