The second section gives general instructions about what ingredients to buy for the most common recipes, what foods to avoid, and what vitamins to take. Gentle exercise and meditation are also recommended as a way to reduce the stress and emotional upset which can lead to migraines.
There is a weekly meal plan and a shopping list for 4 weeks, as well as a weekly page to keep a migraine diary.
The recipes are divided by Breakfast, Salads and Soups, Snacks and Sides, Stews and Chilis, Meatless Mains, Seafood Mains, Meaty Mains, and Desserts. I really appreciate that the ingredients are common things that can be found at any local grocery store. The recipes are fresh twists on classics like burgers and tacos.
The book also includes “Tips for Dining Out” and how to navigate restaurant menus and make good choices. I wish that there were more photographs in this cookbook, but the photos that they have are really colorful and make my mouth water! Each dish looks so delicious!
The Stuffed Zuchinni recipe, in particular, and the Crab Cakes look amazing! There is also a recipe for Turkey Thyme Burgers that looks wonderful.
I can’t wait to try some of these recipes! I don’t get migraines very often, (usually two each month) but I would love to never have them at all.
