9 Hangover Recipes to Combat the Most Brutal Post-St.-Paddy’s Day Symptoms

Across the pond, Saint Patrick’s Day is a religious observance. Something about an ex-slave, mystic visions, and sheep. But for those of us this side of the Atlantic — well, we’re a little less saintly when the shamrocks come out.

So you’ve started drinking already. And you probably won’t stop until you’ve downed your weight in green beer. But come morning, when you wake up covered in glitter and smelling faintly of Guinness, you’re going to need something for that hangover. Forget fish oil and Advil — this Saint Paddy’s Day, we’re bringing out the big guns. However brutal your blackout, these recipes are a cure for whatever ails you.

Quinoa is Key

Back away from the breakfast sandwich. We know a fatty, bacon-loaded heart attack on a roll sounds good, but it’s exactly the thing you shouldn’t be eating right now. Opt instead for a bowl of quinoa to replenish your body’s amino acids. Thanks, How Sweet It Is!

Toast It

Eggs are your best drinking buddy. They won’t hold your hair back when you puke, but they’ll be there in the morning to stabilize your blood sugar and help break down toxins. Fry one up and put it on avocado toast for a healthy morning-after overhaul, courtesy of Love and Lemons.

Better Than Pizza

Stop right there. We see you reaching for that slice of pizza. Trade it for Joy the Baker’s homemade asparagus tarts — they’ll give you your cheesy fix with the added benefit of asparagus’ anti-hangover miracle work.

Dip It

Don’t even think about chips and dip. Actually, do it — but do it right. Little Leopard Book gives her spinach and artichoke dip a healthy twist when it meets hangover-fighting hummus.

Wage War

In your war on hangovers, think of this salad as your battering ram. It’s packed with leafy kale, almonds, and roasted salmon — which definitely beats fish oil pills. Thanks, Jelly Toast!

Pho Real

Ramen calling your name? Shut it down with a bowl of Kitchen Confidante’s pho, which is like chicken noodle soup on steroids. You’ll stay hydrated and replenish your sodium levels. And it’s also just damn good.

Will It Blend?

This is what you make when you are so hungover, you barely remember to put on clothes: throw fruit, ice, and coconut water in a blender. Flip the on switch. Because girl, you need electrolytes. Munchin’ with Munckin has a great strawberry and watermelon cocktail…but, you know, leave out the rum.
