3 Foods To Avoid Before Taking Alcohol

Titilayo Ilori

When it comes to drinking alcohol, there are foods we should avoid eating before and after. These types of food can cause serious complications if they are not taken seriously. These foods include:

1. Salad

Eating salad before drinking alcohol is like drinking on an empty stomach. Vegetables don't take long to digest, and no matter the quantity you consume, you may still need to add some protein to your vegetables. This will take a longer period to digest and it will slow down the effects of the alcohol from getting into the bloodstream.

2. Spicy food

We agree that spicy food is delicious, but you should also consider the risk of eating it before taking alcohol. Eating spicy food before drinking alcohol can cause severe heartburns. It can also cause acid reflux ( a situation where the stomach bile irritates the food).

3. Salty food

Salty food has a way of making the body dehydrated. So, taking alcohol after eating salty food can cause dehydration, which can result in dry mouth.
