Time really does heal all wounds, even the pounding head, queasy stomach, heavy eyelid kind. But there are a few things you can do to help pass the time.
Alcohol has a diuretic effect on the body, so it's imperative to drink water.
Coffee only causes further dehydration, but if you feel the need to help you be more alert, don't drink it on an empty stomach and do double your water intake.
You liver is busy metabolizing the alcohol and will have a hard time also producing the additional gluclose your body needs from stored carbs resulting in low blood sugar, so get some good carbs in you.
Move- the endorphin release could boost your mood so get moving.
And finally, skip the Gatorade, it's filled with sugar and other non essentials. Even though they stopped using high fructose syrup, it's still filled with chemically treated ingredients and refined sugar. Instead, replace your electrolytes with Homemade Gatorade.
Below I'm giving you two recipe options; option 1 is simply squeezing some fruit in a jar and shaking. Option 2 requires a few minutes of steeping fresh ginger (which is a good antinflammatory and helps to settle upset stomachs). Both are great, just may depend on the level of effort you are up for.
The flavor on both of these is reminiscent of the classic yellow gatorade, but they are definitely more natural and have their own taste. Not in a bad way, they are pretty decent. I found the more I drink the more I crave the next sip.
I recommend using coconut water, it contains the same five electrolytes found in human blood and is a great hydrator and that is key to stopping your aching noggin.
For those looking to replace electrolites from intense exercise rather than drinking, these are the perfect choice over a store-bought, chemically filled option. It's a Fat and Happy cocktail that will keep you going for a few more miles.
Fat and Happy Tips and Techniques: The only real cure is to not drink in the first place. But I'm a Health Coach, not a Mormon and we've all needed a little help at some point the morning after. These drinks should last nearly 2 weeks in the fridge so making a batch before that next weekend bender is a good idea.
Homemade Gatorade Recipe
Lemon and Lime Water
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
2 Tbls organic sugar*
1/8 tsp sea salt
3-4 cups filtered water or coconut water
Place the lime, lemon, sugar and salt in a seal-able jar or container, shake to dissolve the sugar. Add 3 cups of water. Taste, add additional water if you would like the drink more diluted.
*I use organic palm sugar - which gave this one a darker color and deeper flavor.
Ginger and Coconut Water
3-4 slices of fresh ginger
2-3 cups coconut water
5 Tbls fresh lemon juice
1 Tbls raw honey
1/8 tsp sea salt
Place 1 cup of coconut water and the ginger slices in a small pan, heat for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let steep for another 5 minutes minimum. Stir in the raw honey until dissolved.
In a seal-able jar or container, shake together the ginger water, lemon and salt and 1 cup of coconut water. Taste, add additional water if you prefer a more diluted drink. Enjoy this warm as a tea or chilled.
