Obviously, the main reason I love the Holidays is all the wine, signature drinks and food I get to make and consume unabashedly. The general merriment is no doubt most people’s favorite part of the holidays – a dreaded part are the intense hangovers and belly bloat. Well, after years of searching and trying all kinds of “cures” from Advil and water at night to Bloody Marys and a raw egg in the morning, I have found a natural cure that helps me be productive the next day (instead of doing it all over again, ahem, mimosas.) So, I thought I’d share it with you my quick fix so you can pick up these supplies along with your turkey and celery.
- Hangover Formula from Source Naturals which you can find at Whole Foods in the supplements section (although not a week before Burning Man in any store in the Bay Area) or online.
- A box of Emergen C Super Orange (any flavor will do but I like this one the best) also at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s and in many drugstores
- Distilled Water
For best results, take two of the Hangover Formula pills at night after drinking before you go to bed with one 8 oz + glass of Distilled Water. This nutures your little cells and the distilled water decreases bloating plus you won’t get that blood sugar drop that has you up at 4am. Understandable you may forget, because, well…you’ve been drinking. That’s okay just jump to step two. In the morning, take a full glass of Distilled Water mixed with one (or two) Emergen-Cs and one or two Hangover pills. Ahh…what a difference it will make!
