Best food combo for stamina

If you look at the table above, you can see that the best combo for increasing your max stamina would be Lox Meat Pie, Fish Wraps and Serpent Stew. Eating all three would bump up your stamina by 250 points.

Best food combo for health

The best combo for increasing your maximum health also consists of top of the line foods – this time around it’s Lox Meat Pie, Blood Pudding and Serpent Stew. Eating them all in quick succession would increase your health by 250.

Best food combo for healing

Hands down the single best healing food in the game is honey. It heals 5 health per tick. If it’s healing you’re the most interested in, combine it with any two of the foods that heal 4 health per tick – Fish Wraps, Blood Pudding, Lox Meat Pie and Serpent Stew.

Best food for early game

After you decide to upgrade your diet from raw berries and grilled meat, you’ll probably want to know which foods are the easiest to make while also providing great benefits. First off, it’s honey. If you make around five or six bee hives, you’ll end up with more honey you can find a use for.

Next up is the Queen’s Jam. It’s better than eating the two types of berries on their own, while also saving some inventory space. There’s loads of them in the early biomes, so you won’t be left with an empty stomach.

Carrot Soup is also a great choice as soon as you’ve found your first batch of carrot seeds. You’ll need some mushrooms as well, which might be an issues if you’ve been gorging on them before you discovered fine cuisine.

Sausages are a great choice once you reach the swamps. You’ll get a bunch of entrails from the zombies, so if you have some thistle lying around you’ll be in for a treat.
