Sunday morning, I was in a bad place. We attended a lovely dinner party the night before at Anna/Kevin's. In addition to a delicious spread of food, the champagne, wine, and Bailey's flowed freely the whole night. Too freely.
The next morning, I had the stereotypical hangover: headache, extreme nausea, body aches, fever flashes - the works.
Now, if someone were to ask me what the best food is for a hangover, I'd direct them to Huey's. It's a local burger joint where I'd promptly advise: a (veggie)burger, french fries, and a Diet Coke. While this hasn't been scientifically proven, I'm willing to bet 9 out of 10 hangover sufferers agree that this food works wonders on the weary, post-drinking stomach.
If the local burger joint isn't available, I'd recommend the greasy spoon breakfast place. Upon entering, one should immediately place an order for: fried eggs, buttered toast, greasy hashbrown potatoes, and coffee. Again - it would work wonders.
But what "hangover food" does one eat who's on a healthy-eating kick? If you recall, my healthy-living plan only includes one day of food splurges (Saturday). So when the hangover man came knocking at my door on Sunday morning, I didn't know what to do. Is there a healthy alternative?
I can say with some certainty that my eggwhite scramble with spinach and black beans did not do the trick. Did not.
Do you guys have any tried-and-true "cures" to the hangover blues? Any thoughts on a healthy way to do it?
