Hangover Helpers – OJ, Water & Protien

Kathleen swears by this morning ritual after a great night out!

Orange juice along with a bottle of water…not only to rehydrate but to elevate your blood sugar levels that have dropped low due to the alcohol being metabolized.

Protein! Usually the best is a good hamburger chased by a little caffeine and some ibuprofen. I’ll take the steak and eggs, please.

Thanks, Kathleen!
