Hangover Food Recipes That Will Save Your Day (PHOTOS)

We're in the thick of celebration season. You're going to need hangover food.

We're officially in the thick of celebration season. Holiday parties, drinks with friends to catch up, Yankee swaps, New Year's Eve cocktail parties -- we're all going to need a little... detoxification soon. While we recommend that you eat lots and lots of leafy greens, drink plenty of water, etc., we know that in the moment, you're going to need some hangover food.

We asked our friends and colleagues what they need to jolt themselves out of a post-celebration funk. What did we find? Lots of coffee, more egg dishes than we realized and plenty of hot chiles. Be advised: most of this food is not healthy. But healthfulness is usually not what we're considering when we're dragging ourselves around with one eye open.

Tell us all about your hangover regimen in the comments. We're always looking for new tricks.

See how much of this stuff you can get into your face. Really test the limits. As an added bonus of being alive, you should know that coffee also contains water (but you should still try to drink some on its own). Photo via Flickr user Svadilfari
