If you’re heading out to a barbecue this Memorial Day Weekend, skip the hot dogs if your migraines are sensitive to nitrates. Other cured meats and sausages, hard cheeses, heavily spiced foods, avocados and alcohol may all trigger migraines too.
Instead, opt for burgers or chicken on the grill not too heavily spiced and without seasoning salt. Grilled veggies are always a good choice too. Drink plenty of water, and if you want to have a drink, opt for a vodka or gin drink that’s not too sugary. And please, have a designated driver.
