I’ve never had much faith in food triggering headaches. Too many seem like coincidence rather than cause and effect. Chocolate, for example, is not only not a trigger for me, but studies haven’t shown a clear link between headache and chocolate. And the medical community is split, with opinions ranging from yes, absolutely to no, most likely not.
My skepticism was overridden when I identified peanut butter as an obvious trigger for me. Getting rid of that trigger made other potential food triggers much more obvious. Like coffee, which is a story for another day.
So I’m finally going to tackle the vast world of food triggers. Even if your headaches aren’t migraine, a lot of the information will still apply to you. I’ll examine perspectives the pro and con perspectives as well as share resources. If you have specific questions about food triggers or headache prevention diets, let me know and I’ll make sure I address them in a post.
