Hangover Food!

So, I went to a function last night and drank way, way too much. Open bar and I couldn't eat any of the food. I planned for this, ate a huge lunch and brought cookies but did I eat them? Nooooo. Also, it doesn't matter how big a lunch you eat if you are going to consume endless vodka drinks. I need to remember to eat.

So, of course I threw up all morning, napped for awhile and now I'm finally ready for something to eat. But this means I have to drag myself up the street because there's only one place that would deliver anything gluten-free and I don't feel like their food. I guess I should be more grateful I do have that option, but I don't, because I want soft gooey pizza that bends, not pizza on a super cripsy rice flour base. Grumbles. (I also have food at home but lean meat and veges? So not appealing right now. I want starches and grease!).

On the plus side, I'm very impressed that I resisted the cupcakes. I couldn't walk straight, but I didn't gluten myself.

gluten-free bagel with ham and egg and a Dr. Pepper?

I always want grease, caffeine, and sugar after one of those nights.

I'm with PricklyPear. Hangovers absolutely require eggs. Srambled eggs with cheese because an omelette is too much work when you're hungover. Got any gluten-free toast or bagels?

And kudos on passing up the cupcakes. An alcohol hangover is far preferable to a gluten one!

Fluids w/o caffeine- juice, Gatorade, ginger ale, room temp water with lemon.....lemon will help settle the stomach. Honey if you have a dry throat, dry toast which is also settling to the stomach. Fruit to help restore your vitamins. Pain reliever, warm wash cloth to the head, and some extra sleep.

Do eggs really help hangovers. I got drunk the other night so much so, that I grabbed the bread roll on the table that I was sitting at for our function and ate the lot of it! It was a nice french bread roll - not gluten free - but I wasn't sick from it thankfully. Just had a little farting and burping *excuse me* afterwards. :o

Eggs are a folk remedy for hangovers. The rationale is that they are rich in cysteine, which your liver burns through metabolizing the various chemicals in alcoholic drinks. Plus part of hangover is hypoglycemia so you need some simple, bland food and eggs are super-easy to cook and keep down.

I also find Alka-Seltzer helpful for the headache and nausea. You want to drink lots of fluid becasue hangovers are partly dehydration.

You can mitigate hangovers by drinking a lot of water over the course of the evening. I was tasting whiskey with a couple friends who are nurses and it was truly funny how much water we were going through between rounds. We all knew that we'd regret it if we didn't stay hydrated.

Thanks for all the replies! I actually had gluten-free bread in the freezer, I totally forgot. Gluten free bagels are hard to get here, alas, had none. I did boil an egg but I couldn't bear to eat it and since it's my regular breakfast, I didn't want to 'taint' it. I didn't know they were hangover remedy, next time I'll try and eat it.

Usually I drink a tonne of water - I did have three bottles that night - but I drank waaaaay too much on an empty stomach. Bad move.

    • Two fantastic cities, have loved my time in each. Sadly the hash brownies in Amsterdam are definitely gluten filled and I suppose the cones of chips with mayo are a risk depending on what else they fry in them  so it'll have to be a night in the coffee shops Len   I think Pudim flan should be gluten free, Portuguese caramel pudding.  There are some fantastic Portuguese fish dishes that should be ok. Calde verde soup is another personal favourite. You can sample the Vinho verde of course. Portugal is one of my favourite countries, great people and Lisbon has some great sights to explore.   
    • The only information that seems to be available on gliadinx is from the outfit that sells it.  I'm very leary of these products that people are desperate for and which are highly priced. A product to deal with incidental ingestion of gluten is what we dream of, but supplements aren't regulated enough to avoid for-profit scams.  I was actually disappointed to see this website publish an article a while back that could be interpreted as endorsement of this product..  I'm waiting to see some independent analysis and support from the celiac medical community rather than dump a bunch of money to try it out.  There was another product several years ago making the same claim and it disappeared from the market.   And of course as already discussed, if it is effective, it would only be for incidental ingestion of gluten if taken when the food is being ingested.   But wouldn't that alone be life changing!
    • TexasJen - It sounds like we're in similar situations.  While I make every effort to avoid gluten in restaurants, I don't go nuts about it.  When in doubt, I aim for salads, and try to be careful with the dressings.  I will eat ice cream, but if I can't confirm it's gluten-free, then I stick with the basics (no cookies and cream or brownie bits, and yes, I'm aware that even then it may not be safe).  I'm not sure it's a good thing that I have very little in the way of symptoms, since it doesn't give me much of a warning that I'm doing harm. We're travelling to Amsterdam and then on to Lisbon.  From what I can see there are plenty of great gluten-free options in Amsterdam (bagels, pizza, etc), and I think enough that I won't go hungry in Lisbon, either. Thanks again, everyone, for all the feedback and ideas!
    • As a beer substitute Cider should be fine. You're ok with strongbow which is one of the most readily available. Magners is another option, that's typically in bottles. Kopparberg also ok. Be careful however that there are some products which look like cider but are actually a beer. Either find a mainstream brand you can stomach and stick to it or ask and google. Preferably in advance rather than on a night out when you want to forget all this B*llocks and have a good time  You can also ask or google in advance to see if there's a gluten free beer option. I was in a tiny place a little while ago and was astonished to see gluten-free beers available, turned out the barman was coeliac and made sure he had some in stock for when he was off duty  Coeliac UK insist that distilled liquor is fine and there are super sensitive people here who will back that up, but I'm like you, I didn't want anything from a gluten grain after I went on the diet, physics be damned!  As above, rum is an option. Also wine, you should be ok there also.   Be careful with post mix drinks. I avoid them because the combined nozzles are to my mind a risk, at least if there's anything gluten filled in the other feeds. Oh and be really careful about snacks. Walkers crisps for instance are in every sodding pub in the country but even the ready salted are to be avoided. If you've not yet joined Coeliac UK you should, even for one year to get the guide they produce. It will tell you what the safe brands are and it will be money very well spent. Bottoms up!   
    • As I understood it they help break down gluten in the gut. We were discussing them here very recently I can't find the thread where it was discussed however. I wouldn't use them to actively eat something with gluten, but I think if I were travelling I'd like to pack something like this to try and reduce the chances of cross contamination. Even if they only work on a placebo basis I'll take any edge I can! Anyway Len, I don't want to derail your thread any further, just something I remembered that may be of interest given your devil may care stance Matt
