About the Book

A Selection of the National Headache Foundation

More than just a cookbook for migraine avoidance, The Migraine Gourmet is a comprehensive guide to migraine-free eating. Emphasizing the use of fresh ingredients with less salt and fat, it includes food strategies for migraine avoidance at the grocery store, in the kitchen, when eating out and during the cocktail hour.

Ranging from the everyday to the gourmet, The Migraine Gourmet reflects an up-to-date approach to healthful cooking without compromising flavor and includes:

  • hundreds of easy-to-follow recipes
  • meals for two or meals for a crowd
  • guidelines for ingredient replacement in favorite recipes

Many foods have been identified as triggers for migraines. While diet alone cannot guarantee freedom from migraines, amateur cook Jerry Rainville-whose wife suffers from migraines-offers hundreds of recipes aimed at keeping migraine-triggering foods off your plate.
