Diet, Triggers


Tofu was the latest test subject for determining which legumes are headache triggers for me. I won’t bother trying to replicate this study. The answer is as clear as it was for peanuts, sunflower seeds and black beans.

It seems obvious that I should simply sidestep legumes. (Just had an image of walking past Mr. Peanut on the street and not making eye contact with him.) But it’s not that easy. I’m torn between wanting to find a legume I can trust and honoring my pain-avoidance instinct.

Any suggestions for a smart(er) approach to testing food triggers?
