Had a blast last night? Bet you did! You even forgot to remove all the dark eye shadows. Halloween is over, and what’ left is obviously – hangover! So, what are you going to do to get rid of it? You can’t just lie there, do nothing and just wait for the headache to heal itself. Hear your stomach growling? Don’t ignore, stand up and prepare these simple yet effective hangover cures.

You are dehydrated. And what you need is not the commercial electrolyte drink. There is a natural elixir that would surely make you up and running again. All it takes is just one single shot. No, not tequila but coconut water plus ginger and turmeric smoothie. Blend them all together, and what you get is a strong, effective and cheap detoxifying drink.

Ginger is such a tummy-pleaser while turmeric cleanses the liver and has anti-inflammatory effects while coconut is rich in potassium. Having this drink into your body will help eliminate all the toxins from food and drinks you had last night. The result – no hangover, clean liver!

Another great alternative is the smoothie rich in protein and antioxidants from banana, pineapple chunks, kale leaves, romaine and spirulina. Again, blend them all to your desired consistency starting with the greens first, then the rest of the ingredients. Drink all the way down as what you did with margarita last night.

Of course, you can’t just drink these healthy yet not so tasty beverages all day. You need to fill in the empty stomach as well with something substantial and tasty this time. But beware, avoid the oily breakfast and still go for green.

This recipe came from a nutrition and food expert, so you can be sure that it is effective. It is called the Asparagus Egg Muffins. It is cooked the same way as the regular muffins. The only difference is the presence of asparagus that is known for its anti-hangover effect. Yes, this is a fact and proven true. Asparagus contains an enzyme that breaks down the harmful alcohol toxins into good ones as it is being metabolized and absorbed in the digestive tract.

So what you need are asparagus, organic eggs, coconut milk, salt and pepper to taste, spinach and coconut oil. Mix eggs with the greens, asparagus and coconut milk and bake it. That’s it! Very easy, right?

But if you already expect you are going to be facing hangover the next day, prepare the asparagus muffin a day before and just store it. Also, buy all the ingredients for the smoothie so you have them in place the next day.
Halloween party is such an exciting event as it only happens once a year. So, never let the fear of hangover stop you from partying. After all, you have these cures available.

Hangover cured? Got more energy for another party? You don’t have to worry about the food preparation. Just call Upper North Shore Spit Roast Catering for some mouthwatering menus.
