So last night a glass of wine turned into, well, a lot more than that—and now your stomach is churning and your head feels like it's splitting into a million tiny little pieces (oy). Before you swear off alcohol forever, check out these go-to hangover cures from health experts, influencers, and a few of our editors. These are the remedies they swear by to calm the nausea, replenish electrolytes, and get back on their feet after having one (or a few!) too many.

Tea with ginger + a banana

"I'll have tea with organic honey and fresh grated ginger root, and a banana. 
Ginger is a natural nausea fighter, and this trio also provides antioxidants, which can guard against some of the inflammation and damage caused by drinking (especially to your aching brain!). As for the banana, when you get dehydrated from drinking you lose not only water, but also electrolytes, including potassium. And too little potassium can lead to cramps, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, and heart palpitations. Bananas are a good source, so they can provide some quick relief." —Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD, contributing nutrition editor

Fruit smoothie

"My go-to cure would be a smoothie made with strawberries, blueberries, OJ, and a banana—this drink will help with hydration and is chock-full of antioxidants and potassium." —Roshini Raj, MD, Health's contributing medical editor

Greasy food

"When I know I am planning to go out and play a little harder than usual, I'll take magnesium and turmeric in advance, and chug lots of coconut water to keep my electrolytes high. This combination usually helps me manage the consequences of a rowdy night on the town. But the truth is, you're going to hurt a little anyway. If you allot a "cheat day," let it be the day after the party. Mexican food, burger, and fries, maybe some pancakes—heavier, greasy food usually helps me feel a little better. Then rest! I do some twists, throw my legs up against the wall, and let it ride!" —Lauren Taus, a yoga instructor in L.A.

Berocca tablet

"My fiancé got me hooked on these effervescent vitamin supplement tablets called Berocca—they're popular in his home country of Australia—which you dissolve in a glass of water ($14, amazon.com). They're marketed as a way to get a boost of vitamins and energy, but I find they're particularly good for those mornings when you wake up feeling not-so-great after too many drinks." —Kathleen Mulpeter, senior digital editor

Ginger-infused kombucha

"Don't go for the sugary sport drinks, instead grab a kombucha—we recommend the ginger-infused [kind]. Kombucha is an alkaline-forming food, which reduces the level of acid in your stomach that comes from drinking. The slight carbonation combined with your now-balanced alkaline levels will help reduce an upset stomach. Not to mention, ginger helps soothes nausea so you'll be covered twice over!" —The Tone It Up girls

1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

"After any night of drinking I make sure to drink a bottle of water before bed. When I wake up hungover I like to have a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in 8 oz. of water (gross going down) and it clears my stomach right out, followed by a good breakfast and fresh air." —Sarah Levey, yogi and co-founder of Y7 Studio

A fitness class (paid for in advance)

"I’m the annoying friend that forces myself to a sweaty class the day after drinking (it just might be a noon class instead of a 9 a.m.!). I usually feel like crap when I wake up if I drank more than I should have, but knowing that I committed to a class and paid for it already helps me snap out of that “I’m hungover, poor me” mindset. I get up, chug water, have a yogurt or oatmeal, put on my workout clothes, and get moving. I almost always feel better after the class. It’s mind over matter!"—Jacqueline Andriakos, senior editor

An outdoor run

"Exercise is usually the last thing you feel like doing, but it's the only thing that really works (at least, in my opinion!). I think it's a combination of getting a good sweat, rehydrating, and fresh air and (hopefully) sunshine. I'm usually pretty grumpy about it in the moment, but afterward I'm so glad I ran." —Sarah Klein, senior digital editor

When youre after some vegan grub, Wetherspoons likely isnt the first place you think to go.

For pints, sure. But plant-based meals?

That could be set to change with the pub brands newest addition to the menu.

JD Wetherspoon has teamed up with startup The Meatless Farm – the UK rival to those Impossible and Beyond Meat burgers youve heard about – to create a vegan burger with the taste and texture of meat.

The burgers first landed on the menu early this year. Now, after a successful six-month trial in 40 Wetherspoons pubs, itll be available at all 880 Wetherspoons branches.

You may have sampled The Meatless Farms offering before – they sell their plant-based mince, burgers, and sausages in loads of major supermarkets.

Made of pea, soy and rice protein, chicory root, and carrot fibre, the burger is designed to have that meaty feel that will convert even the staunchest carnivores to give it a go.

While Wetherspoons already does a vegetarian burger, this will be the first ever vegan patty the pub has sold.

Its served with a side of chips and onion rings for around £6 (prices vary depending on which Wetherspoon you head to).

Wetherspoons head of catering, Jameson Robinson, said: We are keen to offer vegetarian and vegan pub-goers an excellent choice of meals to enjoy at Wetherspoon.

The plant-based burger is a great addition to the menu and we are confident that it will prove popular with vegetarians and vegans as well as those who eat meat.

We all know somebody who loves condiments a bit too much.

The one who drowns their roast dinner in ketchup, or eats lasagna with a squirt of salad cream on the side.

But are condiment cupcakes a step too far? Heinz has teamed up with the famous Hummingbird Bakery to create a range of cakes inspired by the beans manufacturers iconic products.

The cupcake flavours include ketchup, beans, mayo, salad cream and tomato soup – and were not sure how to feel about them.

The launch of the cakes this Friday is to celebrate the birthday of company founder, Henry John Heinz.

Each of the six Hummingbird Bakery branches in London is giving away 25 of the cakes for free, on a first-come, first-served basis. After that, youll be able to buy them for £3.45 each.

But do we really need a mayo flavoured cupcake? And how does a tomato soup flavoured cake even work? Were not sure, but were definitely intrigued.

Attention, plant-based pals: Zizzi has launched a new vegan pizza and it sounds amazing.

The new jackfruit pepperoni pizza comes in partnership with plant-based protein company Jack & Bry.

The Jackfruit Italian Hot is topped with a new kind of pepperoni to create a vegan alternative to the classic, so now vegans dont have to miss out on enjoying circles of meaty joy.

The plant-based pizza, which costs £10.75, is the first vegan dish to be permanently added to the Zizzi menu, and has been voted as the Best Vegan Pizza at the PETA Vegan Food Awards 2019.

The new pizza comes topped with four ingredients: spicy harissa, roquito chili, vegan Mozzarisella and jackfruit pepperoni.

So yes, its a pretty healthy option all round – even for those who arent vegan.

The Jackfruit Italian Hot is available as a Rustica, Classic or Skinny pizza and comes as part of Zizzis new Autumn menu which will be available from 15 October.

Bryony Tinn-Disbury, Co-Founder of Jack & Bry says: Were absolutely thrilled to be working with Zizzi on their latest vegan dish. There is a huge opportunity right now for brands and restaurants to listen to their audiences by expanding their plant-based offerings. Its great that Zizzi are committed to its audience and are helping to create delicious, guilt-free plant-based alternatives.
