Some people find that certain foods can trigger their headaches and migraines.
Foods that might trigger migraines and headaches vary quite a bit from person to person. Some people find that wine is a trigger. Others find that chocolate may be a trigger.
Generally, for good health, a diet that is high in vegetables, fruits, and complex carbohydrates and low in junk foods including processed foods. This type of diet also generally works well to keep headaches to a minimum.
For some, not eating frequently enough may be a trigger. For example, skipping breakfast or eating lunch at a later than usual time may bring on a headache.
For more information, talk to your provider about which diet and foods are right for you.
