Our excitement for New Year's Eve is building by the minute! NYE is the best night of the year for a great party (besides our birthday, of course) and this year it falls on a Friday. Double bonus! Since we've already explained what to eat and what to drink for this year's celebration, we figured it was time to move beyond the Champagne & Caviar and give away our best ideas for your New Year's Day Recovery Diet.
We're all planning to stay up late and have plenty of bubbly on New Year's Eve, but what about New Year's Day? You'll want to eat delicious food to revive your body and spirit. When researching what's best for a Recovery Diet, we kept coming back to the classics: Eggs, Cheese, Meat and Bread. For big brunches nothing's better than cheesy, eggy and meaty dishes sitting atop toasted bread. Whether you wake up early or late, we've got you covered with the best brunch dishes on the planet.
To find the best dishes for your Recovery Diet, we powered up the FoodPair search engine and found some great dishes to help you get fired up for 2011. Enjoy!
