headache causing foods

Have you ever eaten your face off and later felt a headache coming on? Not fun, right? Well there are actually foods that can trigger headaches and even worse migraines.

Not every headache or migraine is tied to a trigger. But, if yours are, one of the best ways to prevent them is to learn your triggers and do your best to avoid them. For some people, that means saying no to certain foods.

Common Trigger Foods

Some common trigger foods include:

  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Beans (fava or other similar beans)
  • Chocolate
  • Corn
  • Citrus fruits
  • Cultured dairy products (such as yogurt)
  • Nuts and nut butters
  • Onions
  • Tomatoes

Additionally red wine and other alcoholic drinks like beer, champagne, and hard liquor can also causes headaches and migraines.

Check your eating habits and monitor those that may be causing you headaches or migraines. And talk to your doctor about how you can cut back on trigger foods.
