Holidays are in full swing, which may mean burning the holiday candle at both ends. To paraphrase a wise seafood lover, if you want to hoot with the owls at night, you can’t soar with the eagles in the morning! Another glass of champagne or slice of cake might seem like a good idea at the time, but hindsight is 20/20, right? But there are three steps you can take to put your best foot forward when the merriment catches up with you the next day … rest, hydration and good nutrition—like eating some healthy seafood. So if you’re nursing a hangover or major sugar overload, pull up a chair and read on.
We all know there isn’t a real cure-all for overindulgence, but we also know that eating some seafood the day after a rockin’ eve can give your body some of what it needs to recover. For one thing, you’ll get plenty of protein, which will increase your energy levels and help you feel like yourself again. Seafood is also rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, and can help replace depleted electrolytes like potassium.
