Halloween is in a few days and it is bound to get pretty reckless. One of your friends will drink too much an empty stomach or end up with a bad hangover the next morning. While everyone has their own ridiculous remedies that they swear will cure it, there is a better way to help prevent an awful night or day after.
Nutritionists Katherine Brooking and Elisa Zied recommended the best things to eat before a night out. They told Elite Daily:
“It is important to eat something before you drink so the absorption of alcohol into your bloodstream is slowed. Focus on healthy fats and lean sources of protein, as these will help to slow digestion and the absorption of alcohol.
“Refined carbs (white rice, cookies, chips, etc.) tend to be absorbed quickly and will not slow the effects of alcohol by much.”
By now, everyone knows that drinking on an empty stomach is the ultimate regret. You get drunk super fast, could possibly black out, and get a killer hangover the next morning. So eat some of these quick foods before you go out and you’ll thank yourself for it the next day.
1. Peanut Butter and apples
Fat, fiber and vitamin c aka everything you need in your pre-drinking meal
2. Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl
It’s a great source of protein and an excuse to make a trip to chipotle.
It’s protein and fat, and no you don’t have to cook salmon. Just make it a reason to get some sushi.
4. Turkey Sandwich
Use whole wheat bread and you’ll definitely be full.
5. Beet and goat cheese salad
It’s healthy and perfect pre-drinking meal.
6. Chicken Noodle Soup
It’s water, salt and protein. One bowl and your body will be ready for alcohol.
7. Baked Potato
Shot result in loss of potassium, but eating a baked potato before hand will prevent it
8. Falafel on Whole Wheat Pita
Normally we end our nights at falafel trucks. So why not start our nights there?
9. Kale Salad
Make Gwyneth proud.
Instead of drinking Gatorade the morning after. Eat some pickles beforehand and you’ll be getting those electrolytes.
11. Eggs on Whole Wheat Toast
Eggs get rid of toxins in your body due to the cysteine in them.
12. Avocado Toast
It’s quick and has a lot of fat
13. Drink a glass of water
Stay hydrated throughout the night to avoid a hangover.
