Food That Often Triggers Headaches are
- Caffeine (coffee, tea, iced tea, cola). But If you commonly wake up in the morning with a headache; it could be due to caffeine withdrawal during the night That morning cup of coffee then provides the caffeine fix that obliterates a headache.
- Cheese (except cream cheese, cottage cheese, and American cheese)
- Yogurt and sour cream
- Nuts (including peanut butter)
- Processed cured and aged meats (including hot dogs, sausage, bacon, salami, and bologna)

Diet Against A Migraine
First, try to avoid all food triggers. If you drink a lot of coffee, try cutting down on it by one cup every few days until you feel comfortable. After a couple of weeks start experimenting by adding back a food item one at a time every five days or once a week. If a headache occurs, you will know the headache trigger. Avoid that food in the future. To avoid headaches eat more fish, lobster, green olives, ginger, oysters, nuts, seeds, liver and wheat bran.
You have headaches and don’t want to drink medicines? In that case, try this. Drink a half cup of strong coffee with lemon juice. It may help.
