Eating food shouldnt be the only way to restore health after a battle with mobs or a long fall. In other games, whenever I sleep in bed it restores my health fully, and I find that quite helpful. If that was in minecraft, it would be pretty nice and wouldnt need to go out hunting for food while at risk of getting damaged even MORE.
"Well then, whenever someone takes damage, they could just sleep and restore health right away...isnt that sorta cheap?"
Well, as some of you may know, you can only sleep at NIGHT. Therefor you wont be able to sleep whenever you want to regain health quickly. And who wants to go to sleep and wake up the next day with only 1 heart left, anyways?
