Eat and Drink The Hangover Away: Tips For Curing the Booze Blues

Picnics, parties and barbecues are starting to become more frequent and with such occasions come the requisite notion to tipple in some grownup beverages. Like many of us, you’ve probably indulged too much  the night before and those feeling of regret the next day vowing to “never drink again” are all too common. To alleviate the inevitable, here are the best ways to cure a hangover.

What to Drink

Whilst all of those mojitos you knocked back last night seemed like a good idea at the time, they actually caused your kidneys to produce excessive amounts of water causing dehydration. Replenish these fluids with plenty of water. Flat ginger ale can help sooth your stomach, while sports drinks compensate for lost nutrients and fruit juice gives you necessary vitamins. Add a coffee or coke for a caffeine boost and you’ll be good as gold!

What to Eat

Fulfilling those cravings for greasy foods may make you feel better in the short-term, but in reality the oil and richness of these foods could upset your stomach even more. Try chowing down on apples and bananas to restore minerals and nutrients that will help to eliminate your headache.

An ideal hangover breakfast would include eggs (which contain nutrients that counteract excessive alcohol consumption), tomato (which helps metabolize the alcohol more quickly), cabbage (to stabilize blood sugar levels), and a few pieces of fruit.

Of course, the easiest way to not have a hangover would be to skip the drinking all together. However, we all know this is sometimes just not going to happen! Some things to think about next time you fancy a drink include avoiding sugary cocktails, drinking plenty of water throughout the night and taking some vitamin B before bed.
