Its kinda hard when there's a lot of good mods that add a Much Needed better storage system (AE2/RS) But, Barring those because they're kinda universally just great...

Note: Empty bowls can be duplicated by having the food item in Slot 2-9, and having an empty slot in any slot to the left of the food item. You will eat, Sometimes it'll visually complete, You'll get an empty bowl, But you'll also get an Actual empty bowl in the empty slot. This basically allows you to eat and run at full speed.
