I've been compiling a juicy selection of migraine food recipes for years now.
Now in a a huge collection, I've had to convert them all for my allergies (dairy, wheat, almonds, sugar, etc.) and to be migraine friendly.
Having studied Chinese Medicine and Nutrition over the years, I've chopped and changed recipes to suit me and incorporate the new things I learned. I love food! This page is going to be a work in progress for some time, so please bear with me whilst I find an easy way to copy all the recipes for you.

Good choices for migraine recipes, according to Carol Foster, MD. author of Migraine, Your Questions Answered (and my two cents) are:
I would recommend trying to always make your own homemade salad dressing from: olive oil, apple cider vinegar, herbs like basil, rosemary, and oregano. Garlic and black pepper are nice sometimes too. You can add honey or anything from the allowed migraine foods list.
I have a new take on high protein breakfasts for you, if you're brave enough to try it.
I've been using this way of eating for years now. My doctor, at the time, was treating me for recovery from chronic illness and I discovered that when I removed my organic chicken broth, that my migraines reduced significantly.
After further experimentation, I concluded that it could have been the combination of onion, carrots and celery that must have been a trigger for me (FODMAP). But I was not able to maintain the significant reduction in migraine attacks from avoiding the soup broth.
Food testing can be trial and error... and draining!
Anyway, back to this new idea... the method uses steamed, cooked and puréed foods to provide optimum nutrition to the body - quickly. Being puréed means it is almost predigested. However, having said that, because you drink your food you may also benefit from taking additional digestive enzymes.
Chewing starts the enzymatic process needed to digest food. That is why there are so many theories around chewing your food 50 times before taking in more food. Don't worry about the details... all will be revealed.
For the special method and portions please click on migraine diet recovery plan for details. Here are my puréed recipes so far:
You don't have to purée these, you can just eat them steamed. Stay tuned for more 'normal' recipes below! And remember you can send us your favorite migraine recipes too.
