After Party or Date Night Hangover Cure
Feeling less-than-ideal after a party or date night gone sour? Perhaps you need a hangover cure. While as fitness professionals, we do not advocate drinking too much alcohol, the reality is people drink. When we drink more than the body can handle, it’s a challenge to avoid symptoms the next day. Sugary drinks producing headaches and brain fog can zap our energy level and focus. As professionals, discourage your clients from drinking too much, if at all. But when they do fall off their nutrition plan, there are some hangover-healthy tips they may greatly benefit from.
Pro tip: Consume a lot of dark leafy greens which contain replenishing vitamins that are lost from alcohol consumption. Also reach for food items high in magnesium and potassium to help rebalance the mind, as well as flush out excess water.
Try this easy recipe and you may find a spring to your step in no time. Drink generously 2-3 throughout the day. Combine the following ingredients:
- Coconut water (1 large can, 20 oz. or more)
- Apple cider vinegar (2 TBP)
- Lemon juice (1/2 to 1 whole lemon)
- Honey- (1 tsp. or leave out if you don’t want the sugar)
- Cayenne pepper (1-2 tsp to your taste)
Add 1/2 cup coconut water (CO2 is my personal favorite) to cut the bitterness of kale. Share it with your sweetie, help them watch their waistline and they’ll love you even more.
