Everyday Foods That Trigger Migraine Headaches
Migraines are a common type of headache characterized by pounding or throbbing pain, usually on only one side of the head. Other symptoms of migraine headaches include dizziness, nausea, and vomiting.
In general, eating nutritious, well-balanced meals each day can play a significant role in the prevention of migraine headaches. However, since many foods trigger headaches, individuals who suffer from migraines have to be very selective when choosing what to eat.
If you regularly experience migraines, here are five foods that you should consume in moderation, if at all.

Q:Hey Fran! I'm in school full time and I work as well. Any advice for an all natural energy boost to get me through my workouts after a long day? Thanks!
I have a few different go-to options when I need an energy boost! Try 1 tablespoon of Maca Root Powder in a smoothie or oatmeal. I made a video tutorial about it here. Try making a Chia Fresca. Wheatgrass shots from a local health food store (or make your own if you have a juicer!) are incredible before a workout. Eat a kiwi! The healthy sugar will give you a nice and clean boost of energy while also providing healthy fiber to help you push through. And a banana dipped in almond butter always helps me get the job done! Hope that helps <3
The Powerful Pineapple: A Nutrient-Dense Superfood for Good Health
You may find it hard to believe that something as juicy and refreshingly sweet as pineapple could actually be good for you. Due to its unique composition of nutrients, this tropical fruit has long served therapeutic purposes in traditional medicine. Here are some ways in which regular pineapple consumption can be quite beneficial to your health.
There are 2 different types of juicers: Centrifugal and Masticating. Centrifugal are the ones you commonly see in stores and juicing posts/vids. It tends to be louder but juices at a really high speed! The masticating juicer (in the pic) is a lot slower, has a slow hum and calmly chews through your greens. The difference between the two types? The low speed and slow chewing motion of the masticating juicer preserves more of the nutrients and healing properties in your greens. So while it may take more time to make the juice, you also end up with way more health cleansing your body and blood. It also minimizes oxidation which means less separation and foam, so you can juice a bigger batch and it will still be fresh and last longer in the fridge (for those of you who don’t have time to juice every day). Just something to consider if you’re thinking of buying a juicer. This one is my Omega VRT 350. Pricey but an awesome investment towards even greater health. Do you guys want a “Favorite Things” video where I show you my fav kitchen gadgets? I’ll make sure to include tons of affordable options!
To ease with my smoothie prep (and to stop wasting so much damn spinach!), I blended an entire bag of spinach with a cup of skim milk, and froze the majority of it in an ice cube tray! This way, when I want to make green smoothies, all I have to do is pop out a few of the blended spinach cubes, and toss them in with the rest of my fruit.
It’s an awesome way to use a big bag of spinach before it goes bad!
