The Hangover Sandwich

It would be unrealistic not to enjoy the odd overindulgence. We’ve all suffered from the morning after effects of too much alcohol but instead of the usual English fry-up or pain au chocolate to ease the pain, why not be a little savvier with your choice of recovery food by avoiding the evil clutches of the sugar and carb spiral?

Here’s my perfect-day-after sandwich to help you clean up! Using powerful foods that contain antioxidants to assist the liver’s natural detoxification process, nutrients to soothe the digestive system and protein to re-energise:
