Mardi Gras: For the hungover people

Good morning, my hungover friends!

As college students, we have a unique ability to turn almost any holiday into an excuse to party. This week we were afforded two opportunities, known as President’s Day (you just know those guys got down) and Mardi Gras.

So chances are, if you spent your night like this….

You probably woke up feeling like this:

Ah yes, the hangover. Right about now, your head feels like it’s trying to implode from the inside. You might be snuggling with a puke bucket. This is usually when the construction workers in your complex decide to start using that power drill outside your window.

It’s not a good morning.

This next part is really important. STEP AWAY FROM THE GREASY FOOD. Put down the taco bell, and pay attention. While those tortillas filled with greasy meat sound delicious right now, they can’t help you. What you really need is eggs. According to CNN (I did research, just for you!) eggs contain a small amount of Cysteine, which helps break down hangover causing toxins. I realize that the last thing you feel like doing right now is cooking, but guess what?

You can make scrambled eggs in a bowl! That’s right, no messy pan, no standing over the stove. Here’s how it works:

Hungover Scrambled Eggs:

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons milk

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 scallion, thinly sliced

1 cherry tomato, quartered

Combine the eggs, milk, pepper, and salt in a 10 ounce bowl. Stir in scallion.

If you look closely, these eggs are smiling at you with a black eye.

Beat the hell out of them with a fork, then microwave for 45 seconds. Maybe take this time to brush your teeth.

By now, your eggs should look like this:

Microwave for about 45 more seconds, until the eggs are just set. With a clean fork, stir in the cheese. Cover with a paper towel and let sit for about a minute.

Once the cheese is melted, break up the eggs with a fork.

Top with the quartered cherry tomato, and you’re finished! Try not to spend too much time crying over your life decisions.

If your head is still killing you, eat your eggs with a cup of coffee. The caffeine will help the blood flow to your head. True story.

Happy hangover everyone!
