The festive season is upon us and things may be a little different this year but one thing is for certain, some of us will end up with the dreaded hangovers the morning after the celebrations! There is some light relief however, as one of the most effective ways to cure a hangover is in fact … eggs! Yep, you heard that right!
Eggs are not only packed full of nutritional goodness including the mighty vitamin D but they also contain cysteine which is known to alleviate nausea and headaches. Eggs are an amazing natural source of protein which means that they also help us to feel fuller for longer, beating those munchies which normally means a day filled with unhealthy snacks, which ironically only make our bodies feel worse!
2020 has seen egg sales increase by as much as 30% with lockdown and more people working from home taking up baking and looking for quick, nutritious meals that are easy to prepare – eggs will now be the super stars of the festive season too!
Nutritionist, Cat MacDonald says: “Eggs help the body to metabolise alcohol, shifting that hungover feeling so you can start to feel normal again. Eggs are nutrient-dense and thanks to their special protein package, they will keep you feeling fuller for longer; having a couple of eggs for breakfast ‘the morning after’ will help prevent you from overindulging in hangover-hunger calories for the rest of the day. There are few foods that will make you feel better like eggs, and they are so good for you.”
