Hangover Breakfast with Sorrel Smoothie, Amaranth Bowl & Rhubarb Ceviche

Suddenly it’s there again - the hangover. Who of us doesn’t know that awful feeling after a good night of partying? Everything was so much fun and you enjoyed yourself in good company and with a glass of wine or maybe a few more. Now you open your eyes the next morning, your mouth is dry, your head hurts and everything is just too much. A hangover easily spoils your whole day or even more. But what happened? In a nutshell, the alcohol has deprived your body of all minerals and you lack fluids. The good thing is, there are certain things you can do to prevent a bad hangover and if you already have one, you can help yourself getting back on your feet with some delicious dishes.

How to prevent a hangover

Now, I could be super smart and tell you “Don’t drink as much or at all”, but as I enjoy a good wine or drink myself every now and then, there are a few simple things to keep in mind. So, if you know there might be a few glasses tonight, make sure you’ve eaten properly before going out. The best thing to eat is something fatty, combined with salt and protein. This could be bacon and eggs, for example, or a hearty pasta. These ingredients will help your body slow down the process of alcohol absorption into the blood system. Also, make sure to follow a simple rule of thumb: 1 drink followed by a glass of water and maybe some salty snacks. This will help stay hydrated as alcohol will dehydrate you quite easily.

What to eat with a hangover

However, if you may have pushed your body to its limits and couldn’t prevent a hangover, you can try recharging your batteries with some of my recipes below. The most important thing is to drink water and replenish your mineral levels. Your body needs all kinds of them because alcohol depletes the body of both quickly and then leaves you with a sometimes painful hangover. So, protein, calcium, sugar, iodine and vitamins are the minerals to include in a good hangover breakfast. I know that some foods just don’t feel right (listen to your body), so I came up with a simple hangover breakfast for you. The Sorrel & Spelt Smoothie as a careful introduction to food intake, followed by a delicious Amaranth Bowl and should just a few headaches plague you, a delicious Rhubarb Ceviche. All these recipes will help you get back on track and are full of ingredients your body needs right now.
