Hangover Helper: Nibble While You Drink

An empty stomach encourages a more rapid rush of alcohol into your system, putting you at risk for hangover symptoms even before your evening ends. To stop this cycle, enjoy some snacks while you’re sipping. A full belly will slow the rate at which your stomach releases alcohol into your bloodstream so you don’t end up in a drunken stupor. Fatty fare tends to slow digestion best, allowing alcohol to be absorbed more evenly into your bloodstream. So enjoy a handful of nuts or some cheese cubes to head off hurt later.
