At some point over the festive season you may have found yourself feeling the effects of a little too much celebrating. For those mornings when you wake up feeling like someone has dropped a rhinoceros on your head, here are some ideas as to what might help.

After a night of imbibing you’ll probably want something to settle your stomach and to help replenish the salt and vitamins your body has lost; some protein and carbs could be good for you too. Whatever you choose to eat, the last thing you need is hidden gluten. So, what are some great gluten-free hangover cures?

If you’re someone who craves greasy the morning after, how about some chicken fried rice, a gluten-free bacon and egg sandwich or some leftover gluten-free pizza?


If, on the other hand, you are someone who can’t face anything spicy, greasy or flavored when you wake up, try settling your stomach with some gluten-free crackers, plain gluten-free cereal or plain and simple grains like brown rice, quinoa or corn meal.

Fluid wise, sports drinks, coconut water or even chocolate milk can be good for replenishing electrolytes while ginger ale or some fizzy lemonade can help with nausea. Consider some orange juice or fresh strawberries to fill you with Vitamin C.

My personal favorite remedies are a can of coconut water to wash down a gluten-free peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a huge bowl of gluten-free cereal.

How did you combat this year’s merry and happy?
