If you drink regularly, odds are that you have experienced at least one hangover in your life. The reality is that you have probably experienced more than you care to remember. Now that science is able to give us a better insight into what actually causes hangover symptoms, we know the best way to combat a hangover is to hydrate and take vitamin-boosting supplements like Intelligent Drinking’s LAUNCH. However, we all have to eat. So what’s the best choice on those mornings where you can barely get out of bed? These are our four favorite hangover breakfasts.
Not only are eggs incredibly simple to make, which can be crucial depending on the state of your hangover, they’re also incredibly high in protein and contain the amino acid cysteine. Cysteine actually helps your body to purge itself of all the toxins left behind by the alcohol. Pair those eggs with a cup of coffee, a big glass of water and you’ll be right as rain in no time.
Smoothies are on of the best hangover breakfasts out there, because you can tailor it to your specific needs. Not only that, but smoothies are easy on the stomach, which can be a lifesaver if you’re still a bit nauseous from drinking. Our favorite hangover smoothie uses bananas and a packet of LAUNCH. The natural sugar in the bananas will give you an energy boost while the potassium will help with that the world is ending general ickiness.
Having asparagus first thing in the morning may seem weird, especially when you’re hungover. But studies show that asparagus may be incredibly effective at mitigating hangover symptoms. Compounds found in asparagus help to break down the alcohol, enabling the toxins to exit your system more quickly. Plus, it’s actually really easy to make if you just steam it.
Not only is yogurt easy on your stomach, but a yogurt rich in probiotics can do wonder for the microbiome in your body. Alcohol wreaks havoc on the healthy bacteria that’s responsible for helping with your digestion, meaning a bit of yogurt in the morning can actually help with any bowel-related hangover symptoms you may find yourself dealing with. You can spice it up with nutrient dense fruits like berries and granola to aid in your recovery as well. Yogurt is one of our go to hangover foods.
Of course, the best thing you can do to mitigate a hangover is to avoid it by drinking responsibly. However, we all know that doesn’t happen all of the time. For those times where it doesn’t, remember to stay hydrated and keep a packet of Intelligent Drinking’s LAUNCH product handy. Visit www.intelligentdrinking.com to learn more.
