B4 Hitting the Bar or Party on NY's Eve or ANY TIME ~ :):)

Eat a meal rich in fiber, carbohydrates, and healthy fats - like those found in avocado & nuts. They help slow the body's absorption of alcohol. One of my PRE drink meals is quinoa (keen-wah).

Be sure to nibble as you drink on things like nuts. It's ideal to stick to light-colored liquors like vodka or white wine over dark ones like whiskey and red wine, because they contain less chemicals calle congeners, which can leave you with a splitting headache. Avoid add-ins like sour mix, which pack preservatives that can make hangovers HELL! Plus, they will spike your blood glucose which will send you crashing - leading you to crave MORE alcohol.  

Oh dear ~ no wonder I want more more more when I have those mixed friggin' drinks ~ LMAO.

Research has shown it's not a good idea to mix diet soda & booze.
WHY? Sugar substitutes may speed the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream.  

Okay - a tip from the EX-PARTY girl herself (sometimes I think I can still drink like I used to - clearly I cannot). Alternate drink with a nice tall glass of water to combat alcohol dehydrating effect. Dehydration is a killer on the body not to mention your internal organs and cells.

If you do manage to OVER DO IT :) drink coconut water before bed to rehydrate or WANT MORE ENERGY to replenish lost electrolytes. 

Include bananas, eggs, Isalean Protein Shake, plenty of water, eating healthy, brisk walk & my personal HANGOVER REMEDY to get you firing on all cylinders the next morning and day.

These are just a few tips and foods to help your alcohol-ravaged body recover. 
Happy New Year!!!!
