From bacon rolls to banana brownies, the top ten most delicious and effective recipes for easing a nasty hangover

Life can be cruel indeed when you're suffering the hangover from hell.

One minute you're dancing to dodgy 80s tunes, shot of tequila in one hand and a random high-heel shoe in the other. The next, you're pale and sweaty with grey skin, a pounding headache and a stomach that flinches the moment anyone so much as raises their voice.

There's only one thing to do in a situation like this: eat your way out of it.

We've put together our ten favourite recipes that will tackle the effects of too much booze by flushing out your system, clearing your head and providing you with a much-needed boast in energy and metabolism levels. 

From asparagus to peppermint and coconut water, there's a whole load of ingredients out there that will do battle with your hangover by way of their antioxidant, hydrating and vitamin-rich properties.

Whether it's white chocolate banana brownies (potassium hit) or the traditional bacon sandwich (breaks down amino acids), these soothing and reviving dishes promise to ease away your pain. Plus, let's face it, guilty pleasure over-eating is the one silver lining of an alcohol overload...

So forget the Nurofen and go forth and refuel. Don't let the hangover triumph!
