Although usually associated with a different kind of sick, try some soup after a rough (and by rough, we mean awesome) night. The salt in tomato or chicken varieties helps you retain water, and if you’ve been vomiting, you’ll need their potassium and sodium in your body, which returns your electrolytes back to baseline, says Sarah Krieger, R.D., a Tampa-based nutritionist. Plus, a sneaky benefit: the salt makes you thirsty, so you’re forced to rehydrate.
