Believe It Or Not, Watermelon Is A Lifesaver Hangover Food

You wake up the morning after a crazy Friday, Saturday or occasional Tuesday night. You have a pounding headache, feeling nauseous, are probably shaking from dehydration. You stumble to the fridge to try and get some food and some Pedialyte to re-hydrate. You open the door and right there in front of you is an absolute lifesaver, watermelon.

Now I know what you’re thinking, everyone always says you need greasy food!

Greasy food can be problematic. It doesn’t always sit right in your stomach, causing you to get sick, which you were trying to avoid all together. Now your day may be ruined because you can’t keep anything down.

Watermelon is what you need. Why?

1. It’s cold.

I don’t know about you but after a long night of over drinking and bad decisions, my body feels overheated and the coolness of the watermelon helps get your body back to a normal temperature or at least feel like it is.

2. Watermelon, as the name says, is full of water!

In fact, watermelon is 92% water. So while you’re filling your stomach you’re re-hydrating yourself at the same time. It’s a win-win.

3. Have you EVER seen anyone get sick from watermelon?

Have you ever seen anyone without a smile on their face while eating watermelon? No, you haven’t! Why? Because it’s delicious. It won’t make you gag from the taste and will only leave you smiling. Unless of course, you soaked the watermelon in vodka… hair of the dog anyone?

So the next time you’re hungover and sitting there with a pounding headache, go grab yourself some watermelon and Pedialyte and get ready to do it all over again. I promise you this will help cure the hangover and get you right back in action, pounding beers and making bad decisions.
