Entering the new year with a hangover isn't too fun.

So, if you're mixing drinks tonight, it might also be worth mixing up a veggie platter. Specifically one with asparagus.

According to a study published in the Journal of Food Science, amino acids and minerals in asparagus can help the body speed up the metabolism of alcohol.

The best part of the vegetable to eat is the leaves.

Other standard hangover prevention methods include eating before drinking and pair your drinks with plenty of water.

When all else fails, sleep it off.
