This weekend just gone, saw us meet up with some good friends who we have known for many years. Due to the distance, we don't see each other often, so when we do, we like to make an occasion of it, and yes, most of the time, alcohol comes out the cupboard when the girlies are in bed!
Who doesn’t like a little drink on the weekend? The problem is the morning after especially if you have to go to work or have young children that need a parent to get them bathed, dressed, make the meals etc.
If you’ve woken up with a hangover and need a quick fix to get you back on your feet we’ve got the best hangover cure in juice form for you.
Don’t worry you don’t need much other than a blender, food processor or juicer and some ingredients most people will have in the fridge or pantry.
- 4 oranges
- 1 piece of ginger (thumb size or less)
- 2 carrots
- 1 apple
- 1 lime
Oranges, lots of oranges!
Ever noticed if you have a hangover orange juice is one of the first things you reach for in the fridge? Citrus juice is a great cure for a hangover and the vitamin C is your body’s way of looking to replenish much needed vitamins.
Take 4 oranges, yes 4 cut them up to a thumb size piece, leave the skin on if you have a cold press juicer such as the Oscar NEO DA 1000 http://www.vitality4life.co.uk/oscar-neo-1000/ that thing will crush anything you put in it’s way.
If you have a more standard blender or food processor unless it’s heavy duty you will probably need to peel them first unless you like a lot of pulp.
Who doesn’t love a bit of ginger?
Well if you don’t normally eat ginger, we seriously recommend you give it a go. It wakes your taste buds right up and will get your metabolism working fast.
Carrots are a great source of juice believe it or not and cheap too plus nearly everyone has carrots in their house. Not frozen or tinned ones though that won’t work ;-)
An apple a day keeps the hangover at bay – you got it just as the doctor said cut up an apple and chuck that in too.
1 lime is all it takes to give this juice a real kick, again roughly chop and pop in your juicer.
Drink it all up and you’ll feel better in no time. A good tip is to do this before you go out drinking.
