SALAD

Plain and simple. It rehydrates and nourishes you with nutrients. 

COFFEE

Always in moderation. For some it can be quite detrimental, others an amazing remedy. Due to the content of caffeine it can be beneficial. Caffeine is a vasoconstrictor, which means it can reduce the size of blood vessels. Thus helping with migraines. 

BANANAS

High in potassium and even better, high in magnesium. As migraine sufferers we all know how much magnesium can help us. 

SPICY FOOD

Yes, I know, capsaicin. However, it does relieve congestion which is a major cause of migraines. 

BREAD

Whole grain bread is a great resource for migraineurs. The unprocessed grains release carbohydrates more slowly than white bread, replenishing your physical energy more quickly.

POTATOES

Keep the skin on the potato. The skin is the best part as it is packed with potassium.

YOGURT

Healthy and helpful! Yogurt is high in calcium which can help relax your body and take care of a sore head. Low calcium levels also result in painful headaches, so yogurt can be a great ally!

ALMONDS

Fight fire with fire. Try a handfull of almonds. Almonds are high in tryptophan, an amino acid that stimulates the release of serotonin, otherwise known as the feel good brain chemical.

WATERMELON

Of course this is on the list! Watermelon is a delicious way to quickly rehydrate and consume healthy sugars.

MUSHROOMS

Not only amazingly tasty, but also spectacularly good for you! Mushrooms just happen to be high in vitamin B2, aka riboflavin. A pivotal nutrient for making celular energy.

SALMON

When you think of seafood, you think of omega-3. Foods that exhibit high levels of these healthy fats have been shown to help relieve chronic headaches. These omega-3 fatty acids can also reduce inflammation and stop a sore head.

CUCUMBER

Another amazing method to rehydrate while eating a healthy meal. The cucumber, like the watermelon has a large amount of water. Consider the cucumber the water king of the vegetable kingdom, whereas the watermelon reigns supreme with fruits. 

QUINOA

What makes quinoa unique? Quinoa is actually a seed and not a grain. This means that it is high in protein and relatively low in carbohydrates. Another perk: quinoa is also high in magnesium.

SPINACH

Spinach is awesome, just ask Popeye! For migraine relief, it has been shown to reduce blood pressure. Spinach is also high in magnesium and provides a generous amount of water content.
