Hangovers happen. And while water, aspirin, and a little time are the best ways to deal with the after-effects of drinking, little things—like what you eat—can help. Take this pressed-juice recipe, for instance. At first glance, it may seem like just a Bloody Mary minus the vodka, but it's a juicing recipe for energy that will help you power through the day.
Full of the essential nutrients (think: vitamin C, lycopene, and hydrating water) that your body is depleted of from drinking, this pressed juice also gets a spicy kick from the added jalapeño. And when you're feeling too miserable to move, a quick boost of endorphins can make or break the day. Nauseated? There's a little dose of stomach-soothing ginger to help you out too.
2 celery stalks
1/2-inch piece ginger
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded
1/4 large cucumber
Run all ingredients through a juicer. Pour juice into glass and enjoy immediately.
