THE DRUNK GIRL’S GUIDE TO EATING HEALTHY ON A HANGOVER
1. JUICY TOMATOES
There is a reason why Bloody Mary’s are the key morning-after drink for those that are struggling. We suggest going ‘virgin’ and opting for the key ingredient in them, tomatoes! The reason why you feel so great after a Bloody Mary is not because of the alcohol content, but rather what the tomatoes offer to the body. They are high in vitamin C, contain glutathione (this is what helps counteract the yucky hangover toxins) and revive you like no other!
2. GO GREEN!
Give your liver a rejuvenating do-over the morning after with a great helping of baby spinach. It’s as though spinach ward’s off the hangover symptoms with it’s richness in vitamin C, folic acid and sulphur. Your body will thank you for it!
3. ADD A LITTLE GINGER
Feeling a little nausea from those tequila shots last night? Just add a little ginger to a fruit juice you are making. Firstly, the fruit juice will increase your blood sugar levels (that have no doubt, ahem, plummeted through the ground from your night out) with it’s natural sugars and will replace some of those electrolytes you have lost. Add apples, cranberries or take a full dose of orange juice and add a little ginger. Ginger is a powerful antioxidant that eases nausea and relieves your inflamed digestive system that feels like someone is punching your gut.
