Foods are interactable objects that restore health equal to 15% of your maximum health. They can be found throughout the game, except in the Abyss. They will have a glowing white sheen to set them apart from other objects. Trying to eat a food item when at full health will not work, as it will not restore/overheal and remain uneaten. Challenges can task you to find the number of food.
