Food/Cooking is a major survival mechanic in 7 Days to Die. Consuming food/drink grants Fullness, which restores Max Stamina. Without periodic consumption of food/drink, hunger and thirst debilitate the player, slowing movement/action speed and eventually causing death.

Early Game[]

  • Canned food and bottled water (found as loot or purchased from traders) are essential for early survival.
  • Save Glass Jars and fill them at bodies of water.
  • A Campfire, a Cooking Grill and a Cooking Pot are essential for cooking. These can be usually found from sinks inside houses.

Late Game[]

  • Most Canned Food can be used in cooking recipes but some cannot. Save them if possible
  • Establish a garden near bases to farm many vegetables and other plants needed for cooking recipes.
  • Crops need sunlight to grow. Placing Farm Plots indoors will not allow them to grow.
  • Advanced recipes give the most amount of food too so favor them over basic foods.

Notes[]

  • You are unable to drink any more if your Water Fullness is at the maximum.
  • You are unable to eat any more if your Food Fullness is at the maximum.

Eating/drinking more is now possible. Doing so will keep your food/water level full for longer.
