Food: Hangover one-pot breakfast

ImageBloody hell! It’s February already, where is this year going? I haven’t managed to upload on here as much as I want to,  but my boyfriends friends are round this weekend so I am planning on writing a load of blog posts.

I thought I would write another recipe blog post, so this is a hangover breakfast special. I found a recipe for this on pintrest and I have adapted it for my own flavors. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

Potatoes- about 2 per person for a filling meal.

Onion- 1

Egg- 1 per person

Peas- as much as you want.

Bacon- a couple rashers

Directions

  1. The first thing you need to do is chop your potatoes, small bite sized are the best with the skin still on, makes them crispy. Once they are chopped you need to put them in a bowl of cold water, this is meant to make them more crispy.
  2. While your potatoes are soaking, start on your bacon. You need to go to chop them into small-ish pieces, make sure you remove the fat, as it is super unhealthy anyway. Fry them off until they are crispy.
  3. You should add your onion and peas to the bacon until they are cooked. Then place them in a bowl.
  4. You can now cook your potatoes, add them into the frying pan on a medium to low setting with plenty of oil. You want to cook them slowly and oily for them to crisp up.
  5. Once the potatoes are cooked add the bacon and veg back into the pan and mix together, make a little well in the middle of the pan and crack an egg. Once the egg is cooked you are ready to plate up. Your egg will turn into a little bit of an omelet with some of the veg and potatoes in it.

The Stodgy potatoes will soak up alcohol nicely, the veg kick in the vitamins and well we all know that bacon is god’s gift to hangovers.

Hope your hangover enjoys this meal.

The Hangover part 2: The morning after the night before

weheartit.com

I am back again with the second part of the hangover cures! This time I will be looking at what you can do to help get over your hangover the day after you have been drinking.

I’m not doing sport!

One of the best things I think you can drink the morning after a night out is a sports drink. They are specifically made to rehydrated your body and according to some of the brands can be more hydration than water. My favorite is Lucozade sport in raspberry. It’s not too sweet but is also refreshing

It’s tradition

Yes, everyone knows of the world most famous hangover cure. The amazing Fried breakfast Yum! I have a few recommendations of places to get your fried cure. If you live in England then look out for a pubs that are part of the scream pub collection. They have great breakfast and they are super cheap! If you don’t then take a look at your Students Unions. Again my SU sells a full english for a couple of quid!

No longer fizzy

This one is for when you are feeling/ being sick! I have no idea how this is meant to help but I have received this advice from a doctor. They said that if you are vomiting then you should try and drink fizzy drinks that have gone flat. I think that it should be flat because it is much easier to keep down if you are ill and the sugar in the drinks give you energy. I have no idea if this is true though!

hair of the dog

I have to admit that the other week I was very a little bit ill after drinking the night before. My boyfriend was determined that the thing that would make me better. I didn’t try it though!

Brush your teeth

I know this seems really strange but if your feeling really ill you are unlikely to want to stick a toothbrush in your mouth. However the minty taste in the toothpaste wakes me up and helped me feel better but I hated the idea! If you really feel like you can’t stomach a toothbrush use mouth wash.

Company

This is another I picked up last week but I thought I would share! I found that once i had my boyfriend in my flat talking to me and taking my mind off my rubbish-ness I felt a lot better. I also think something about not wanting to throw up in front of him may have also helped lol! but it’s still a good plan, it stops you feeling sorry for yourself.

So those are my tips on how to feel better once the hangover has hit. I hope you enjoyed it and feel better now you hangover is in the past.

The Hangover

We all know you are you going to go out and drink too much while your at uni no one is going to stop you doing that. But I can try and stop you getting a hangover or at least help you deal with it!

Eat the stodgy food

The best place to start helping beat a hangover is before you even start drinking. Make sure you eat a proper meal before you start drinking. The best food for soaking up alcohol is carbohydrates! So try to eat pasta, bread or potato with your meal. I found that freshers week was the worst for this; the day I moved into halls we all started drinking before we ate and then indulged in a not-healthy or filling pot noodle. The end result was we were great friends the next day but also in bed all day nursing a hangover!

The Boring one

I have to admit that if you follow this rule you better than I am but I thought I should share it! Drink a glass of water between each alcoholic drink. I told you it was boring but alcohol will dehydrate you so drinking water in between each drink will stop the dehydration and stop the headache.

Passe your self!

I am sure you laughed at the last tip so if you can’t drink water try to passe your drinks. The more time between each drink gives your body more time to digest your alcohol. Note: roughly it takes an hour to digest one unit of alcohol.

Back to the water

I know this post is all water, water, water! At the end of the night before you go to bed try and drink at least 3 glasses of water before sleep!

Get girly

Girls here is my favorite tip I can give you and it comes from my eldest sister! You get back at the end of the night and get your glass of water you need to drink before bed. Put on a chick flick and add some yummy ice cream! I have to admit the ice cream tastes great and the chick flick is a fun way to end the night especially with friends. Say thanks to Sister Confessions!
