have an option for bulk eating and drinking.
Doing that would remove any reason for people to cook more advanced foods and drinks. If We let people drink 100 Water at once then why would they ever buy something more advanced?
I second your comment, Drakkhis - this system is meant to be different from others in that it is made for roleplay, and in my opinion, SLC should be a journey enjoyed as opposed to a destination exploited. What fun would it be to just eat or drink one item and have your stats refilled? I personally opt for realism and immersion, which is what SLC (and we all) deserve.
