Sip Tip: Eat, Drink, and Be Hydrated!

Going out this weekend?  If you plan to drink alcohol, remember to eat a meal rich in healthy carbohydrates and protein and drink lots of water beforehand.  Try going out with friends to a fun, new restaurant or making dinner together.  It can be a delicious way to start the evening, and can help reduce the chances of having a rough morning the next day.

Having food in your system before you drink will help slow the absorption of the alcohol.  This allows the night to last longer as you stay in the blue zone and have fun with your friends.  And remember, to stay hydrated throughout the night by having water or other non-alcoholic beverages with dinner and during your night.
