Post-Holiday Eating Quick Tips

hangover remedies

A few quick tips to help you continue feeling healthy:

For Heartburn (I learned many of these from being pregnant!):

1/2 tsp baking soda + 1/2 c. water–Mix together until dissolved–Drink.

Eat papaya. The enzymes in it reduce the acid that causes heartburn.

Try drinking a tablespoon or so of aloe vera juice. (Do this before a meal to prevent heartburn, too.)

Avoid eating other acidic foods such as: onions, tomatoes, alcohol, caffeine, citrus fruits, soda

For a Hangover:

DRINK WATER. Get rehydrated.

The perfect breakfast for a hangover: eggs, whole grains, and spinach. Protein, fats, fiber, vitamin C. I eat a savory breakfast like this quite often.

REST. Let your body do the work. Over-the-counter “remedies” only cause your body to work harder to process them. Headaches and nausea associated with hangovers can only be remedied by getting your body re-balanced.

Next time, know your triggers and your limits and prevent feeling sick by avoiding those foods and drinks!

    The short cut for this one is to drink a lot of water. Drink a glass of water one hour before meal. :)

      The key to feeling better about anything is generally “drink water!” =D

    I am currently at the end of my pregnancy and have had terrible heartburn the last few months. I wish I had known these remedies earlier!
