For meripo I don't even use any food... enmity is zero issue, max MP is pointless, and I never get to rest anyway.
Max MP has a point on RDM though, if you haven't quite achieved 1:1 through your gear (which I haven't). If so inclined, I'll bring a Marron Glace or Orange Kuchen for that.
I've personally always hated ginger/wizard cookies because they'll often wear off while you're resting or the time it takes to munch one down costs you a tick of resting which defeats the purpose.
This IS rather annoying, I'll admit. If so inclined though, you can try using an unstackable hMP food (that lasts 3-4 hours). Price and availability will definitely vary though, because a lot of this stuff isn't synthed in mass quantity.
