You ever have one of those days, where you wake up at 5:00am, drive 12 hours to NYC, drink beers, and eat proper slices far into the night? Or one of those days, where you wake up, eat at shake shack first thing, go to the Met, ride the Staten Island Ferry, run around central park, eat the entirety of China Town, walk across the brooklyn bridge, then commence again with the beer and slices? Maybe you've done both, back to back; topped off with a return trip the following day. Did we mention the bookends of this excursion were copious amounts of cheez-it crackers, beef jerky, and the creme de la creme of Pennsylvania truck stop delicacies. Of course you have, that's a totally normal experience.
For those of you that, somehow, have yet to find yourself having a weekend like this, let us give you some advice. Do not try to continue treating your body in this fashion upon your arrival home. It will turn out bad, very bad. Instead, we suggest easing back into things. This soup helped our transition back into things. We promise it will work for you too.
