Bring On The Drunchies: The 11 Best Foods To Eat When You're Drunk

by Leigh Weingus

It's 3 am. You had a nutritious, filling dinner before heading out for a night of drinking with your friends.

You told yourself this would finally be the night you would not eat an entire pizza by yourself or a week's worth of bagels in one sitting.

But you had a lot of tequila shots, danced a ton and you're starving.

Hey, we're not going to judge you. The drunchies happen.

While nutrition experts say it's better to save all those calories for the next day when your body actually needs them -- why "hello" there, delicious greasy brunch -- if you are going to drunk eat, some food choices are a lot better than others.

We had nutrition experts Michelle Blum and Lisa Hayim weigh in on what to eat when the drunchies strike. Here's what they had to say.

They're full of flavor and so much better for you than Doritos.

Pop up some popcorn for a lot of flavor and not a lot of calories.

Restore your energy levels with a handful of whole wheat crackers.

It might not look appealing in the moment, but give it a try. It's full of electrolytes and potassium.

Just make 'em healthy.

There are 100 calories in a pint of this stuff. Can't beat that.

Seriously, this is the best cereal ever. And it's really good for you.

You can dump delicious sauce all over these noodles without packing on the calories.

The cysteine and taurine in eggs help detox your body, so dig in.

Help your body rehydrate with a can of chicken noodle soup.

You can have your pizza. Just blot it first.
