Holiday Drinks and Natural Remedies for Hangovers

Holiday drinks!! What to do if you drink to little water and become dehydrated and have a hangover the following day?

If you are going to drink this holiday season, please be responsible and smart.  Always choose good quality ingredients and ORGANIC where you can.  Good rule of thumb is drink a glass of water after each mixed drink. This will not affect your “Buzz” It allows your body to metabolize the alcohol content.

Following the “fun” recipes I have listed a few tips to help sooth your guts.  Remember: if you are a coffee/caffeine person or drinker, those two deplete your B vitamins and fatigue/stress your adrenals out.  Supplements are strongly recommended to help keep levels normal.

I’d be more than happy to help create a meal plan for you to keep you on track during the holidays.  Happy creating!!

I found Bailey’s Almond cream, it’s gluten free and vegan.  Was a total hit at class.  The salted Caramel Kaula was a second win!  The Staff at Total Wine was so helpful in answering my questions since my knowledge lacks in this department.  Don’t be afraid to ask….remember you are the consumer and you vote with your dollars so do so wisely.
