Nothing wrecks a perfect night out with your girls like waking up with a brutal hangover the next morning.
When chugging water all day and snuggling up with Netflix isn’t an option (like, hello…you’ve got places to be!), these healthy hangover food recipes will make you feel human again in no time. Full of ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, your hangover doesn’t stand a chance against these eats.
Yes, everyone’s most Instagrammed eat also happens to be a top-notch hangover fighter. Avocados are full of healthy fats, fiber, potassium, and vitamin B6 to fight dizziness and that general “yuck” feeling. Pair it with carbs — like toast — for a nourishing energy boost.
Hydration is key when it comes to kicking hangover headaches, and this super refreshing smoothie is sure to quench your thirst. Coconut water and cucumbers are electrolyte-restoring superstars, and watermelon helps your body process toxins. And don’t skimp on the ginger in this recipe — it’s known to soothe upset stomachs!
Nix your nausea with a simple, savory miso soup. On top of the much-needed hydration, miso has sodium to help you retain water (something you will actually want at this moment!) and good-for-your-gut bacteria. Add a handful of veggies and noodles to turn it into a full meal.
Craving something hearty? Scramble up eggs and asparagus for a powerhouse feel-good meal! A study from the Institute of Food Technologists found asparagus can protect your liver from the toxins in alcohol (thanks, asparagus!), and eggs will give you a yummy dose of mood-boosting protein.
Somehow the French even make fighting a hangover elegant. Kick your hangover to the curb and look très chic doing it with this luxuriously cozy soup. The fructose in onions revs up your body’s metabolism to burn away any lingering alcohol, and although not scientifically proven, gooey cheese just makes everything better.
