St. Patrick’s Day Food and How to Help with the Morning After Hangover

Wed, Mar 17, 2010


Today, St. Patrick’s Day, revolves around Guinness, Irish Whisky, Irish Cream, and green beer. These alcoholic beverages are usually drunk en mass, but what do you do if you want to have a good time without the alcohol? At The Scribe (University of Colorado’s Online Newspaper) they have some great suggestions for a day without the spirits!

One suggestion that we love is to eat! Try some Irish Oatmeal for breakfast and a lamb stew for lunch. Perhaps later in the afternoon have a slice of Barmbrack bread with some Irish tea, and for dinner how about some corned beef and cabbage with a side of Champ! Then top the evening off with Guinness Chocolate cupcakes (the heat when cooking cooks out the alcohol!) or a slice of apple cake!

For more non-alcoholic ideas check out The Scribe.

However if you do want to celebrate with some libations, in order to avoid the next morning hangover, we look to Globe Life. Over there they discuss how you acquire the hangover and why it happens. One of the great ideas they have to help with the next day hangover is drinking plenty of water to prevent dehydration (the main cause of hangovers) while you drink.

Another suggestion is to not have very much coffee, if you have two cups in the morning, cut it off at one instead, and have a good breakfast with fruits and veggies (foods that have water in them) to go with the hearty breakfast you may be wanting.

No matter what you do for your St. Patrick’s day, make sure you be safe and if you choose to drink please do so responsibly.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
