5 hangover foods you need on New Year’s Day

Recovering from New Year’s Eve and the night of drinking is never an easy task. 

The cure for what ails you, that dreaded New Year’s Day hangover, lies in none other than food. But not just any food; hangover food is a different type of food all together. It tends to be more on the greasy side, but not in a bad way. Think eggs and sausage, burgers stuffed with melted cheese, or even savory breakfast tacos.

Take a shower, drink some water and get to cooking one or all of these ideal hangover meals.
