Holiday Hangover Helpers
Having a cup of Christmas cheer or nine? Here are some foods to eat to help your holiday hangover. Bottom's up!
Whether you're going to consume mass quantities of wine, beer or other forms of holiday cheer, eating fruit may help ward off hangover symptoms. Fruit contains a sugar compound called fructose which may be able to help rid your body of the alcohol faster. Some vegetables also contain vitamins and minerals that can restore the balance of electrolytes in your body.
My favorite cures is carbs. I've never met a carb I didn't like. Whether it's pasta, pancakes or potatoes, I'm all about the carbs. Toast and crackers can help ward off nausea and low blood sugar which can lead to headaches and fatigue.
Soup is always the answer when you're feeling icky. That's because the salt in the bullion can help replace lost electrolytes and alleviate dehydration. The salt also helps you hold on to the water in the soup.
Another no fail was a 32 ounce bottle of purple gatorade, four ibuprofin and a good sleep. When you wake up, down some hot green tea. You should be good as new.
