Top o’ the morning to you, Seafoodies!
Oh, the holidays! Sometimes, we love them a little too much. All the festivities and a few too many late-night toasts and sugar cookies can leave us feeling less than optimal the next morning. While there’s no true cure-all that can reverse the effects of overindulgence, there’s still a lot you can do to help your body bounce back more quickly from the holiday party circuit. Staying hydrated and getting adequate sleep go a long way. And good nutrition can help you along the road to recovery, too. What you eat the morning after can give your body what it needs, like energy, healthy fats, lost electrolytes—much of which can be found in seafood!
Our go-to remedies are quick-cooking, easily digestible, protein-packed dishes that will help restore your energy. They also incorporate foods that are good sources of omega-3s such as eggs, salmon and avocado, which have been shown to reduce inflammation. In many cases, you can prep these meals the day before, so you can keep your bleary-eyed morning kitchen time to a minimum.
These morning-after recipes will help you replenish your body and feel more like yourself. So, give them a try and let us know what you think!

This recipe combines three superfoods—shrimp, eggs and kale—in a comforting, high-protein meal. What’s more, you can prep this the day before so when you’re ready for breakfast, all you need to do is pop it in the oven and enjoy.
Succulent shrimp and squid are marinated in a citrus-tomato juice blend, then served up with fresh vegetables, herbs and other aromatics.
