6 Restorative Recipes to Cure Tomorrow's Hangover
As sure as the sun rises, many of us will feel the wrath of grapes tomorrow. Thankfully, that's nothing a little ibuprofen and a great meal can't fix. We're sharing our six favorite foolproof hangover-curing recipes to restore you to your new and improved 2015 self. And yes, one of these is a cocktail.
As a wise friend once told me, "You can't be hungover when you're drunk." So get off the wagon, and just bring yourself back to equilibrium with a slight buzz. Kalitmotxos are a Spanish spritzer of sorts that is hands-down the best liquid hangover cure I've tried. Why? Because, made with just red wine and Coca-Cola, it has three essential ingredients for combating the cobwebs in your head: carbonation, alcohol (just a little!), and caffeine. It may sound off-putting, but trust me, it's delicious and a godsend. Just don't have too many or you'll wind up hungover twice.
Sometimes all I want is bacon and eggs the morning after a big night, but other times I'm craving something light, fruity, and cold. On those days, an açai bowl is the only thing that crosses my brain. Açai berries are packed with antioxidants, and these blended bowls are usually topped with other heart-healthy or restoratvie ingredients like granola, banana, berries, and coconut that save the day.
Want a little spice with your eggs? This traditional Mexican dish, which features lightly fried corn tortillas, is often served at breakfast topped with an egg, beans, and green salsa. It's a hearty dish that will fuel you up with protein without making you want to take a nap!
Whenever the Naked Chef speaks, I listen. And Mr. Oliver says "this super-tasty, quick noodle recipe is perfect when you're feeling a little down in the dumps." Made with ginger, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and Chinese cabbage, this Asian-inspired noodle bowl is a little different than your standard breakfast fare, but will clear your head in moments.
You don't actually need to have a hangover to enjoy this for breakfast (or lunch, or dinner!), but there's something about this quick and easy dish of eggs cooked in a fiery tomato sauce that just hits the spot when you are.
