Bacon Sandwich as Treatment for Hangovers

Bacon sandwich as treatment for hangovers


A study by Newcastle University found that foods high in protein—such as bacon— break down into amino acids. The combination of fat and amino acids can speed up a sluggish metabolism depleted of neurotransmitters due to over consumption of alcohol, suggesting that a bacon sandwich can help the body lessen the effects of a hangover.

Wow y'all! Who would of ever thought that bacon could lessen the effects of a hangover. OK party people I guess you need to fill that frig up with bacon. I made a page about the bacon sandwich on my website several years ago. Here's the link to it if you want to go read about the bacon sandwich. It's popular in several different countries but called something different in each one.

OK..... so..... the bacon sandwich is considered a hangover food. So let's talk a bit about hangover foods. Maybe I should do a separate post about them because I've found a huge list of so-called foods that help with hangovers. I've found about 50 foods said to help. A post listing them might just be helpful to someone.  But here's a few to give you a taste.

*Bloody Mary
*Chicken noodle soup
*Coffee
*Crackers and honey
*Coconut water
*Fried Chicken


Definition: "Hangover food consists of foods and dishes that have been described as having a theoretical potential for easing or alleviating symptoms associated with the hangover. While recommendations and folk cures for foods and drinks to relieve hangover symptoms abound, hangover foods have not been scientifically proven to function as a remedy or cure for the hangover."

Now just for fun... I also made a section of different types of sandwiches Here.
Ok bacon lover's that's all for now. With all this talk about bacon I think I'm going to go enjoy yourself a bacon sandwich. No, no! Make that a BLT sandwich loaded with bacon. What's your favorite way to eat bacon? What's your favorite way to help a hangover? Let us all know in the comments. Bye for now. :)
