10 Foods and Drinks To Cure a Hangover
If you’re craving something salty, a few chips and guacamole will help heal your hangover. Drinking depletes the body of necessary potassium, and avocados are rich in it. They are also full of fiber, healthy fats, and B6 vitamins to help get your muscle function back on track and keep sodium at bay.
Too much alcohol can deplete the body of B-complex vitamins. That can result in weakness and lightheadedness — you may not be able to make it off the couch. Replenish those essential vitamins and restock on some protein and fatty acids with some salmon. Add ginger miso dressing and you’ll be delivering a double dose of hangover helper.

Soups made from whole veggies like tomatoes, celery, and carrots and with bases like chicken stock are an ideal lunch on hangover days. The sodium in the stock will help you retain the water and nutrients found in vegetables, keeping you hydrated and returning electrolytes to your bloodstream. Too tired to cook? Miso or egg drop soup from your local take-out place will work just fine.
