This research is dedicated to a very special person in my life, who I love unconditionally; and suffers from migraines.
The pains from migraines can be debilitating; they can disrupt your daily routine be it work, leisure or studies.
A migraine is a severe headache, usually on one side of the head and often accompanied by nausea or light sensitivity.(health line)
A recurrent throbbing headache that typically affects one side of the head and is often accompanied by nausea and disturbed vision.(ditionary)
A condition marked by recurring moderate to severe headache, with throbbing pain that usually lasts from four hours to 3 days, typically begins on one side of the head but may spread to both sides, is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light or sound, and is sometimes preceded by an aura an is often followed by fatigue. (Webster Dictionary.)
There is no known cure for migraines but they may be plants and herbs to help relieve pain and offer some relief.
There are some foods and drinks that may trigger migraines such as potato chips, dairy products and caffeine.
The more I research plant based diets the more I am convinced that an adoption of a plant based diet s the best kept secret to longevity and healthy living.
1. Dark leafy greens, like kale, spinach, beet greens, and amaranth leaves, arugula, artichoke, almond salad.

The verdict is out on these two items; they are listed as triggers and preventers, how can they be both? Until I can find research to substantiate the findings,I will refrain from offering an opinion. Please consult a doctor of natural medicine.
If there are certain times when you are likely to suffer from migraines; record the foods and drinks that you consume; the information may be very helpful in the future.
When the suspected time is approaching, like a period, control and monitor your diet; Use the list of recommended foods.
Be cautious how you eliminate foods the triggers migraines; one or two at a time and monitor results.
