Of the local alcohols, mazte and sheen have notional values of 10 septims, while greef and sujamma have notional values of 30 septims (interestingly, given that these are single-use items, this is apparently a single-serving value despite the weight of the item and the apparent size when the item is placed within the world, though it's also entirely possible that that's a gameplay or coding issue rather than an aspect of the game that should be taken literally). I would say that one septim for one meal might be more than a little on the low side, at least in Morrowind, unless your meal is a single unit of raw crab meat or a loaf of bread or something like that.
