Food is a post type that represents eating or drinking particular food or drink. Its content is often similar to a note or can be easily represented as plain text.
Why post food and drink that you consume? Perhaps as a way of tracking your own consumption.
Why post food and drink consumed in public posts? Perhaps as a way of holding yourself publicly accountable to what you eat and drink.
Amy Guy: I post these publicly so when people ask 'what do vegans eat' I can send them a URL.
Amy Guy tracked food by authoring markdown files since 2015-01-10, then switched to Teacup to track and publish food and drink since >whenever I implemented micropub<. Posts URLs only return the raw markdown source at the moment, but can be viewed in a list at rhiaro.co.uk/llog.
Eddie Hinkle uses Teacup web to track food and drink consumption and publish to his website since 2017-04-26. He has a standard generic icon for ate posts and drank posts, but he also includes special icons for: Mt. Dew, Cafe Mocha coffee and Popcorn.

I started tracking my food posts by writing in a text file on my phone. Now when I am somewhere without cell service, I continue to use the text file for offline food posts, and then post them after I get back to a network connection. - Aaron Parecki
Are drinks really food
Q: Are drinks really a kind of food? A subset of food? Or a kind of food?
A: Yes. The presence of phrases such as "liquid diet", and acceptance by at least some that a smoothie, e.g. as prepared by vendors like Jamba Juice, is an acceptable meal, seems to lend credence to considering drinks as a form of food.
