Actually, if you really wanted to dig deep, you could reorganize the food
inventory handling as a whole, such that all operations go through (for
example) FoodInventory::foo() methods; that would keep you safe against
reallocs without needing dozens of getIngredientByName() calls in each
food handling routine.

Figuring out how to keep track of how many of each ingredient are in
which containers is left as an exercise to those who are not already
90% asleep. (:
