12 Foods to Eat Before Drinking
Want to prevent a hangover? Eat foods like these! MORE+ LESS-

Did you know that some foods can actually help prevent a hangover? Read on for some choices that taste good while they do good!

Before you party, EAT! Why? To help minimize that dreaded hangover, that's why!

Oh man, I hope you are ready because it is almost Shamrock O’Clock! 

I know what you’re about to get up to, little warrior, and I fully endorse your pursuit of green beers, green shots, zero pinches and smooches cuz you’re Irish. 

Sidle closer, because I'm about to impart to you some actual wisdom. You want to have fun, but you also don’t want to suffer for getting your Erin go Bragh, am I right? I am totally right.

Here’s a list of some solid food choices to enjoy the before you get your party on – that just might save your bonnie wee head from a bonnie wow headache:


1. Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

It looks totally decadent with its layers of ooey gooey cheese, pepperoni and yummy crust – but it only wants to protect you. Trust the deep dish pizza.


2. Mini Rainbow Fruit Pizza

No, seriously, fruit can help!  Fruits are a great source of minerals and vitamins and can totally help you maintain your precious body fluids.


3. Cheesy Jalapeno Quinoa Bites

This is actually a perfect finger food – it's filling and has a little zip to get your night started right.


4. Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll-Ups

Cheese and salty ham are cradled lovingly in a buttery, fluffy, crescent roll embrace. Super easy to make and even easier to enjoy. 


5. Potato Bites

I’m a big fan of bite-sized treats, and not just because you can totally rationalize eating five fistfuls because they’re small – but kinda mostly that exact reason. Cheese, meat and filling potato starch will help you prevent day-after disaster! 


6. Smoky Mac and Cheese

Foods that are rich in carbs will help absorb alcohol in your stomach. This dish provides those rich carbs you’ll need, and the fat and protein from the cheese will help protect your stomach. Plus, it’s delicious! 


7. Crescent Wrapped Cheesy Meatballs

This is so important because it’s meat AND cheese AND a bready wrap. Score.


8. Almond Parmesan Asparagus

Dude, amino acids found in asparagus are shown to help metabolize alcohol and protect liver cells. Plus, you can pretend you’re eating tiny spears. 


9. Cheddar Cheese Pull-Apart Bread

Pillsbury Grands! Jr. Golden Layers refrigerated buttermilk biscuits and cheddar cheese are all that are required to make this yummy bread.


10. Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

Eggs are a good source of cysteine, an amino acid that helps break down the toxins found in alcohol. Yeah, don't worry about that science stuff – all you need to remember is that this pie-like formation is a headache preventative. 


11. Irish Tater Totchos

Thematically correct and meeting all required elements for filling deliciousness – please do enjoy! 


12. Smoked Almond Cheddar and Bacon Dip

Get a handful of pretzels and usher this delish dip right into your face! 


Of course, the only sure-fire way to make sure that most of your brain cells are accounted for post-party day is to drink responsibly. Stay safe, and have fun!
