Your body is a temple, but in case you went on a beer-infused rampage the past few days, then that temple could use some extra love. Chances are, you don't feel like stepping into the kitchen to prepare a healthy meal this week. Don't worry, these five places will help you and that poor body of yours get back on your feet in no time.

Breakfast for champions at The Happiness Café 

What you need is comfort food that's also good for you. The Happiness Café is the place to be. Treat yourself to a 'Happiness açai bowl' brimming with antioxidants or a 'Healthy winter salad' that will make you feel fit as a fiddle. Add a ginger shot, and you'll be as good as new. 

Soothing dairy from YB by Yoghurt Barn

Heartburn, the great torment of every Carnival enthusiast. After days of greasy snacks and beer, that stomach of yours is probably in a state of disarray. Grandmothers advise us that a bowl of yogurt works wonders against acid reflux. Whether that's true or not, worst-case scenario, you have a delicious bowl of yogurt in your belly. For the lactose-intolerant hungover hero's among us: the Yoghurt Barn also offers plant-based options!

Healing broth from PHOOD Kitchen & Bar

Maximum hydration is the very best cure for a hangover. You can just drink a glass of water (or twenty), but a much better option is a delicious broth-based meal from PHOOD. Your sodium levels will be replenished as well. At PHOOD, they swear by an alkaline diet to de-acidify. You can read how that works on their website, but it sure sounds tempting, doesn't it?

We eat herring after Carnival for a reason. Okay, for some people, it's mainly about ringing in Lent. But fat fish also does wonders for your physical condition. So, off to SeaBas you go for a herring, mackerel, or eel. More tips to feel like a fish in the water again? (sorry not sorry) Check out our 5x seafood take-aways
