Ever After

July 14, 2011

IMG_3648Blog-2

I swear, I had the equivalent of 1.5 drinks last night. Maybe 4-5 small 2-3 ounce pours. And I can totally feel it. I am so sensitive! Slightly headachey, dehydrated, systems off. I love enjoying a few drinks so much – not for the buzz, but because I really enjoy the taste, but sometimes I wonder if I should just give it up! Feeling badly is never, ever worth it.

Maybe it was the 2 sips of pisco!!!

Smoothies seem to be the best hangover cure.

Especially when packed with fruit and clusters!

The Mix
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1/3 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • Cville Cluster Granola
  • Coconut

HOT coffee + choffy! Well I’ll be!

Today is a logistics nightmare. I’m trying to figure out how to get myself from home to the bakery without a bike and with 2 meals (one being gazpacho) and showering gear + clothes for day + night. I’m thinking I need to walk with a backpack. Or just drive. But then my bike is still stuck at the bakery! Our problems would just be solved if we lived just a 2 miles closer!!

Going to noontime Pump today since I’m speaking to a weight loss group tomorrow and will miss my usual glass. And we have to ship out the massive OpenSky order (the first 300 bags of it) and we are providing bread for a fun rooftop event tonight at Second Street Gallery!

I love how your smoothie matches your placemat! Also, on a very random note, the movie that goes by the same title as your post is one of my absolute favorites!

Ditto about the movie ;

On another note – the smoothie color is so beautiful! And the coffee in the first shot – it kind of looks blue to me too!

Busy day…hmm…maybe don’t take Gazpacho today to avoid spillage?!

The older I get (32!), the more I feel like that, too. I really LOVE red wine, but maybe it doesn’t love me. I think about that all the time. It’s not really worth how crappy I fell after 2 glasses of wine. Not fair.

On a brighter note, your smoothie looks refreshing!

Your smoothie is such a gorgeous color! It matches the flowers on the placemat perfectly!

Good luck with everything you have to do today!

I gave up drinking for the exact reasons you mentioned. I just couldn’t handle feeling bad! Even a half glass of wine started to make me feel yucky the next day. I know women who can down an entire bottle of wine and wake up feeling like a million bucks, but I’m just not one of them.

Reply

7 Jennifer July 14, 2011 at 8:10 am

I am the same way. I had one glass of white wine last night and ended up with a horrible headache hours later. I can’t drink red wine for that same reason so I hope white isn’t affecting me now, too.

Good luck today with your “nightmare”. I’m sure you’ll work it out. :)

I, too, love the color of your smoothie. It looks so refreshing and sounds like the perfect cure after a night of drinking.

8 JenATX July 14, 2011 at 8:16 am

Haha I am one of those women who can drink the entire bottle without much effect…But even so, sometimes I don’t want to drink just because its unhealthy & expensive. At those times I pull a “Kath” as I say to my boyfriend and just drink out of tiny glass. Sometimes the tradition of pouring a cocktail or being able to participate in a group that is enjoying a cocktail outweighs the calories

I was actually telling someone the same thing the other day. I don’t know if I’m just getting old or if I’m just becoming sensitive to alcohol. If I drink more than a glass of wine I instantly get a headache. I think I’m just getting old ;)

I must say that that is one of your prettiest smoothie bowls yet! I love the bright rich purple color and the polka dot bowl! I am a sucker for polka dots! Looks revitalizing and I hope that it worked to sooth your hangover! (Coconut water works wonders for that too! Lot’s of good ‘ol electrolytes) Have a fabulous day Kath and good luck figuring out how you’ll be getting to and fro!

I also find that the older I get, the more alcohol affects me the morning after. I love love red wine, but it makes me feel worse than white, so I try to stick with white (sigh). The key for me, even if it is only a couple glasses, is to drink a lot of water before bed. If I have more than a couple, I take advil at night. I try not to do this too often. I also try to avoid drinking on an empty stomach!

Reply

21 Cait's Plate July 14, 2011 at 8:14 am

I have that same bowl (and if not the exact same then one very similar)! I love it – it makes mornings so cheery and happy.

That first picture is awesome. The smoothie that perfect purple color and that amazing place mat and spoon – I’m lovin’ it.

I’m with you on the alcohol sensitivity. I do okay with a small pour of wine but anything over that and I’m definitely feeling it. I’ve just never been a good (or a big) drinker…though speaking of drinking, I keeping seeing the tweets from your sister about the amazing cocktails she’s having on her trip and I gotta say, I think it’d be worth feeling sick for some of them – they sound so good!

26 Hayley @ Oat Couture July 14, 2011 at 10:00 am

I’m the same, no matter how many berries I add the spinach always seems to overpower colour wise!? End up with a murky brown / green… luckily it tastes waaaaay better than it looks! :) Hope you sort out your nightmare day without too many hitches! :)

27 Marisa @ Loser for Life July 14, 2011 at 8:14 am

I am the cheapest date ever – it’s a one drink maximum for me! I can totally feel it the next day if I have more than that!

I absolutely love the colors in the first photo. Beautiful! Purple is my favorite color, so perhaps I am a bit biased? ;)

I try to stick with just one drink at events because more than that usually gives me a headache — especially if I am outside in the heat and not drinking enough water.

I hope the smoothie helps!

Do you feel noticeably better if you chug some water before bed? That always seems to help me, but sometimes no matter how much water I can manage to chug the drinks always win over my headache.
Could you drive and then fit the bike into the car for when your on your way home?

I feel the same way when I drink, especially wine. But it could be lack of proper hydration, because last time I drank I made these watermelon-white wine slushies and must have had 3 and yet I woke up hangover free! I think it was all the water and vitamins in the melon!

I hate the morning after feeling of drinking, so I don’t drink too much anymore. I’ll have the occasional drink or two out with friends and that’s it. Thankfully, if I keep it to that much, I feel okay in the am, but anymore than that & I’m miserable. I’m so not a medication-taker, but the only thing I’ve found to make me not feel like death is excederin migraine and two BIG glasses of water straight off.

Reply

48 Aimee July 14, 2011 at 9:05 am

Maybe something that might put the awful feeling into perspective is that if you had the higher end of your guesstimate, 5 3 oz pOurs, that’s the equivalent of 3 drinks. It is so hard to judge little splashes! And restaurant pours are getting bigger and bigger I swear.

Sounds like a super busy day! I’ve had those days where I just can’t figure out how to get myself where I need to be with all my food, clothes, computer, etc etc without lugging a giiaant bag and sweating the way there. Oh logistics! I hate that feeling of just a slight hangover from drinks (it’s usually 2-3 for me). You just don’t feel right and it stinks. Hope the smoothie cured you!

Reply

51 Laura @ Cookies vs. Carrots July 14, 2011 at 9:23 am

60 veganlily July 14, 2011 at 9:39 am

Hey girl! You should try putting some spinach and/or kale into your smoothies. Well, come to think of it, I think you do already do that sometimes. I find that dark greens really help the dehydrated/slightly hungover feeling. Particularly if you use spinach, you will not even really taste it – I pack my blender with baby spinach and can barely taste it. Kale or collards, on the other hand, you will taste a bit more, so you want to be more judicious. Just a thought…

63 Meredith July 14, 2011 at 9:42 am

Kath – didn’t your college “classes” teach you that the recipe for a hangover = wine + beer + liquor?! ;) I almost always stick to one – usually wine, sometimes beer, hardly ever liquor. It seems like you usually do that too, so you are probably just feeling the effects of mixing the 3 last night. The best hangover cure is OJ (before bed is best)! All that Vitamin C does wonders! Probably why your berry smoothies work best for you :)

Have a great day!

I hear ya, Kath. I realized right after college that I can’t handle drinking at all. I swear it has something to do with my size (I’m just under 5’2. Where’s all the wine supposed to go?!). I definitely did my fair share of drinking in college, but I hated feeling like crap for 48 hours after. Now I can enjoy a glass of wine, but that’s my limit before I fall into hangover territory. No drink is worth feeling that awful!

Is 4-5 2 or 3 oz. pours really equivalent to 1.5 drinks?

I typically consider a serving of wine to be about 4-5 oz. Therefore, 8 oz. (or 4 2 oz. pours) or 15 oz. (or 5 3 oz. pours) of wine would be approximately and respectively 2 servings or 3 servings. I’m sure you’re better at the math than I am (RD and all!), but maybe you had more than you thought?

Big fan of the pisco sour. But yes. It does pack a wallop the next day. The purer the pisco the better, but it’s typically not a finely distilled liquor.

Personally, I can never mix liquor with anything else – that’s the recipe for a terrible hangover for me.

But in the past 5 yrs have had the combined total of maybe 5 drinks? maybe? Life just changed after I had my daughter and I dont miss it, I feel badly when I do, and so I just…don’t. I miss the memories and the camaraderie but I am so sensitive, too, Kath!

I recently tried Goody’s Extra Strength Headache Powder. It works miracles for hangovers. In fact, after I took it I went on a 10 mile bike ride and felt amazing! I poured two pouches onto a spoon and took it with water. It does taste a little bit chalky but it has great results!

I was wondering – I don’t drink much, but even if I have a small glass of wine or a vodka/tonic in the evening – the next morning my eyes/face are puffy and I feel off…I know dehydration would lead to puffiness – but for that small of an amount?!! And I always drink water with it too…is allergies to that possible? I never had a problem with liquor before though…

I managed to stretch out my consumption of the Savannah Bar I bought on Saturday this whole week, but today is the last piece! It was delicious while it lasted :]. Apparently University of Virginia has a dietetic internship, I have a few more years till I graduate but I liked that school and the area; I might apply!

I am in love with this intense purple breakfast!

Spinach also helps with my hangover cure (read: a drop more than 1 beer or 1/2 stout!)

I feel you COMPLETELY on being a lightweight!
Once my boyfriend and I opened a bottle of white wine, I drank 1/4 of my GLASS, then had to lay down because the room was spinning :(

When I read your breakfast posts at work, all i do is long to go home that evening and make a smoothie. But then I get home, and it’s freezing, and I never do….

I’m such a lightweight too. I drink a lot less often now compared to earlier on in college just because I hate the feeling of being hungover so much. :P

Kath, I think you should just wait til you get pregnant, and decide once you’ve had your child, whether or not you want to give it up altogether! Til then, just drink plenty of water along with your drinks!

That smoothie looks incredible! How is the texture with the cottage cheese? Ricotta cheese might be tasty too-plus it has less sodium!

I always have placemat envy! I feel so weird saying it, but your table linens are always so cute!
