There are many different types of food you can find, cook, and harvest in Valheim. The hardcore Viking survival game has an interesting mechanic where your Health, Stamina, and Healing are tied to the food you eat. Players can eat up to three different types of food and gain their effects for a duration of time. With so many options, it can be challenging to figure out what’s best. Below you can find a complete Valheim food and recipe list, along with some lists of what’s best for maximum Health, Stamina, and Healing.
