The Best Foods to Eat Before a Full Night of Drinking
Most of us that start drinking want to continue drinking. The problem is what you eat before you start drinking can have a big impact on the fate of your night.
Eat the right foods and they can control your hunger, keep you hydrated, and overall decrease some of the affects of alcohol, so you don’t feel it the next day. Of course if you eat the wrong foods they can conversely have negative effects such as dehydration, bloating, or indigestion.
Try any of these top 10 foods before a full night of drinking, and feel great the next day.
These little guys are packed with protein, approximately 7 grams per egg! That means eating them before you drink will keep your stomach full. The best part is you can cook them any way you want and still get the protein.
Bananas are 3/3 in their success as a pre-drinking snack. Since they are made up of 75% water they keep you hydrated; the high potassium balances your electrolytes, and they are rich in protein.
3. Low-fat yogurt
Yogurt has all the good stuff you want in your body before you drink. This includes carbs, proteins, and fats (the good kind). This snack will keep you full for at least 5-6 hours.
Hummus plus veggies will give you all the macronutrients you need before a night of drinking.
Berries. Any berries such as strawberries, blackberries, or blueberries can help you stay hydrated while you drink. They also have antioxidants that protect your cells against alcohol damage.
Asparagus and alcohol was a match made in heaven. This green vegetable promotes liver health, so you can imagine why it helps when you drink alcohol.
Potassium quickly depletes when you drink alcohol, but eating Melon beforehand helps replenish those electrolytes. Melon also keeps you hydrated.
Potassium is also lost through urination, so if you find yourself going to the bathroom a lot as you drink, you should maximize your potassium levels with milk beforehand.
If you’ve ever heard that it’s all about the carbs before you drink, you’re right. Spaghetti is the perfect carb and helps maintain glycogen levels to keep you full.
Quinoa is a delicious option, but any whole grain that is high in protein, fiber, and other nutrients is a wise choice before you drink. Not only does Quinoa keep you full, it also has plenty of potassium to fight against electrolyte loss as you drink.
