The Mincraft Diet

I see loads of Epic Builds coming out of Minecraft and have an idea for a way of implementing the Minecraft concept in a real world way that could be beneficial to gamer types; The Minecraft Diet.

The premise of the diet is to build your meals using Minecraft techniques.

Ingredients can only be basic elements of food such as raw grains, fruit, vegetables and meats. Spices can only be bought in their freshest possible form, and all sauces, marinades, and the like must be prepared from scratch - no prepackaged or processed foods or foodlike ingredients allowed.

Additionally you can only use the simplest of implements - no mechanized or electric mixers or blenders, and ideally only cook over a wood or charcoal fire (if Notch ever implements oil and the fuel cracking process I guess a gas stove would be acceptable).

It would essentially make a game out of learning how to cook real, nutritious food from scratch. The truly hardcore players would grind their own flour, churn their own butter, and if they go for the high score brew their own beer.

It's not something that everyone could do, with the availability of affordable raw foods becoming harder to find in urban centers, but definatly a worthwhile challenge.
