The first thing you should know before planning your St. Patrick's Day menu is that the stuff people normally consider bad for you is actually the best thing to prevent hangovers, meaning carbohydrates, fats, and dairy. What better combination of all three than pizza? While just about any topping will do, these cute Shamrock Pizza Squares have a distinctively Irish vibe to them, don't you think?
Convert one of Ireland's signature dishes into a prevention-friendly food with this Corned Beef Panini, which even includes wilted cabbage. The protein from the meat will provide energy needed to keep your drinking stamina up, while the muenster cheese's dairy will coat your stomach, slowing the rate at which you absorb alcohol.
