There’s nothing worse than a too-rich meal that will plunge you into long sleepy digestion! Choose ingredients with stimulating properties: In the salty section, seafood and fish are very popular. Light and rich protein, they will keep you awake until the end of the night. Vegetables like asparagus, artichoke, and celery have energizing properties as well. In addition, do not hesitate to use and abuse spices. If chili and ginger are essential to titillate the senses, know that cinnamon curry, through nutmeg, cloves, or vanilla, all are energizing.
  8. Arrange a chocolate and wine tasting. If you are avid lovers of good wines, organize an in-home tasting. Go buy some good bottles. Ask the clerk for advice on how to discover spectacular wines. Pick up some quality chocolate and perhaps try your luck at a charcuterie platter.
