Best Brunch Foods To Make For When You Have A Hangover

Zoe Kramer January 29, 2023

Waking up with a hangover is no fun. A headache, a sore stomach, nausea — however a hangover may manifest for you, it’s far from a pleasant experience. But there’s no need to write the day off completely. Here are some easy brunch foods you can make that will have you feeling better in no time. Whether you want something deliciously greasy or nice and light, we’ve got you covered.


If the prospect of solid food sounds daunting, not to worry. Smoothies are an ideal way to get all of the nutrients you need. Bananas, leafy greens, avocados and berries are all great additions to your smoothie, but the choice of what to put in it is all yours. Smoothies are great for getting electrolytes into your system if you’re dehydrated. They’re perfect, so long as the blender isn’t too loud for you.


Shakshuka is a great dish to start off your day with. Eggs cooked with tomato sauce and cheese- it’s the perfect savoury plate. You can full English-ify it with your choice of sausage, bangers, mushrooms, beans and toast. It’s a hearty meal and a great way to get some calories.

Bananas on Toast

A nice simple brunch food is bananas on toast. It’s as simple as it sounds, but you can dress it up with honey, cinnamon, peanut butter or chia seeds. It’s a simple, light and easy to digest food that will nonetheless give you a solid energy boost and leave you feeling full.

Avocado & Egg Rice Bowl

This is a perfect way to use leftover takeaway rice. Or, if you have a rice cooker, even better. Heat it up in a bowl, slice up an avocado and then fry and egg or two to put over top. Season with soy sauce or sesame oil for added flavour. This is a healthy and delicious brunch option as well as a great hangover cure.

Bagel Sandwich

If you can put everything on a bagel, why not put everything in a bagel? You can go the breakfast sandwich route with a sausage patty, eggs and cheese, or go for more of a lunch route with salmon and cream cheese. You can stack some lettuce in there for added health value. You can combine whatever your heart desires. The only limits are your imagination — that and whatever you happen to have in your fridge.
