With the Holiday Season just around the corner, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to write an article on The Best Hangover Foods & Drinks. With some extensive research as well as putting the test to ourselves, this is what we have come up with!
Bloody Mary/Mimosa/“Hair of the Dog”
Because nothing will get rid of a hangover like more drinking. The vitamins in both of these drinks help to break down bad toxins for the Alcohol while at the same time providing a little kick from the night before. Just beware too many will put you in the same place you started!
Greasy egg-and-cheese combo that is tested by millions around the world everyday for that quick easy fix. Eggs have an amino acid called “Cysteine” which helps with the breakdown of toxins from that cost effective Alcohol you purchase the night before. ( Maybe mix with a Mimosa for optimum results?)
Here’s where you can applaud drunk you for getting that pizza at 4 a.m. in the first place, then passing out before finishing the whole pie. The crust of pizza has good substance to absorb the booze, while the grease of the cheese offers the best of both worlds.
A jolt of hot java should get you back in fighting form, but too much will dehydrate you, leaving you with a raging headache that will make you want to kill someone. You’ve been warned.
We definitely don’t feel like competing in sports events when we’re hung over, but many of us will consume sports drinks in our alcohol-induced states of dehydration. Desperate for Electrolytes(though you may not be consciously aware of it at the time) you might turn to the neon-colored Gatorade, whether you like the flavors or not they work.
Hangover food of choice endorsed by the Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr. We don’t know why but its worth a shot.
Keep it carbonated. Ginger will help settle your stomach and hopefully stop you from hurling during that horrible morning where you have to meet your girlfriends parents for breakfast.
The greasier, the better. I can’t think of a bad time for fries, but when you are hungover, they are amazing.
If you are anywhere near the Philly area and don’t try to get one of these bad boys when hungover, you have only yourself to blame. Although they can be found almost everywhere so don’t worry your going to be alright. Why do they work? “They just DO” next question?
So there it is, my Top 10 picks for eating and drinking your way through a hangover.
That being said I feel the need to stress the #1 best way to cure a hangover which is ” Rest and Water”.
I know what your all thinking, and your wrong! Yes Pain Medication takes away the pain in your head for a hangover, but at the same time is actually making it harder on your liver which will make the hangover lazy day go by longer. If you must take it which we all do, its best to hold off as long as you can. Pain medication is a drug and so is Alcohol so don’t mix them before bed when your Alcohol blood levels are at the highest, have it in the afternoon the next day when the booze has worn off.
