In the world of Minecraft there are quite a number of ways that you can take damage and lose health.  Anything from falling to being attacked by various monsters to being blown up by an exploding creeper.  On the other hand at least in Minecraft I don’t need to worry about trying to find vitamins for acne or cures for any of a long sad list of diseases and such because there are none of those things in the game (not yet anyway… you never know what Notch might decide to add someday!)

The game provides only one way however to heal yourself and recover health points and that is to eat.  Oh there are a number of foods that provide a varying amount of healing but eating is the only way in the game that I’ve ever heard of to recover health.

Most of these food items require you to either kill passive mobs or to be out in the world to collect them like mushrooms. There’s two kinds and you need one of each to make mushroom soup but it provides a pretty good health shot at five hearts.

The downside is that you have to be out collecting these things and there are times when it’s too dangerous to do that or you don’t have enough health to risk being out looking for stuff.

That’s a large part of why I decided to start an underground farm.  The bread that it allows me to make doesn’t heal a whole lot but the fact that I can farm it from the safety of an underground room in my base makes up for it.  Besides which, I can grow it a LOT faster than I need it.  Especially if I use bone meal for instant growth!
