Migraine Away Eating

Migraines are painful, and not what anyone wants to have to happen. Some of them last a few hours while others last for days. The pounding of the head is no favorite, but there may be a way to reduce the frequency and severity of this head pain with eating. Believe it or not, superfoods rich in omega-3 fatty acids have been known to help.

What Foods to Eat

  • Seeds
    Hemp seeds and chia seeds aid in reducing blood vessel damage, and this helps protect you against stroke and also heart disease. You can add them to oatmeal, yogurt, or smoothies. Some people sprinkle chia on top of salads.
  • Salmon
    Salmon has the highest amount of omega-3s and is full of vitamin D also. This acts to help reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. You can cook salmon on a stovetop, in an oven, or on a grill. You can also eat salmon raw. It is a high protein source!
  • Walnuts
    Walnuts are a great treat. This nut is a good source of protein, fiber, and omega-3s. They can be eaten raw or toasted. This wonder food is linked to reducing heart attack risk. Walnuts are also on the mind diet.  Benefits of eating them include boosting memory and cognitive functions. What is your favorite way to eat them?
