What To Drink When You Drank Too Much… or just need a pick me up!
‘Tis the season for a little indulgence. Whether it happens at the holiday parties, dinners out, or just cozied up by the fire, here is my go-to sipping solution to fix what ails ya!
Drrrrrruuuuummmmmm rrrrooooolllll please…
It’s a simple, nourishing Potassium broth… truly, my what to eat when you (eh-hem) overindulged or just need a bit of a pick me up this is a sip of perfection!
This broth is also perfect for cold weather support in general. It’s also not unusual when seasons change to feel the impact of a congested liver. I have had many clients email about this — feeling drained, with lower than normal energy, even lower back pain. If you’re in this camp, you’re not alone and this broth can help. It is easy to digest and has vitamins and minerals that your body can use to help you feel better faster. It’s essentially a detox drink that tastes great and nourishes!
Make yourself some of this goodness and let me know what you think!
To your health.

- 6 medium Russet Potatoes
- 6 celery stalks
- 1 bunch parsley
- 2 medium carrots
- 2 beets
- 1 bunch dark leafy greens (kale, collards, chard)
- 3 one-inch slices of ginger root
- 1 teaspoon of sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed black peppercorns
- Put 10 cups of water into a pot, cover and bring to a boil.
- Gently wash your produce, but don’t scrub too hard.
- Slice the peel off the potatoes at about 1/8 inch depth. We are using the peel for this broth, so set the potato insides aside for another use.
- Roughly chop remaining vegetables.
- When water is boiling put in everything except the ginger. The water should cover the vegetables with an inch or two to spare on top.
- Return to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to simmer.
- Cook covered for 1.5 hours.
- Add the ginger and continue simmering with the lid on for 30 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and gently mash the veggies, then strain the broth.
Sip this throughout the day or use some as a base for a light soup.
