Struggling with migraines, weather headaches, or sinus headaches? Author and certified health coach Stephanie Weaver stopped by with key tips from her new book, "The Migraine Relief Plan: An 8-Week Transition to Better Eating, Fewer Headaches, and Optimal Health."

Here are three easy swaps to get you started:

  • Instead of sweeting with sugar, use plant-based stevia. Sugar creates inflammation in the body, and an inflamed brain is ripe for triggering into a migraine.
  • Avoid eating soy products like tofu, edamame, soybean oil, or soy sauce. Soy is a powerful trigger for many people. Stephanie suggests a migraine-friendly bean like garbanzos.
  • Skip processed foods as much as possible, as they contain inflammatory oils, sugar, and high levels of sodium. Switch to whole foods and, when you have a craving for chips, make oven-baked fries using extra-virgin olive oil and sea salt.

You'll find 75 migraine-friendly recipes plus a 14-day meal plan and a complete lifestyle guide in "The Migraine Relief Plan."

*Meet Stephanie in person on Friday, April 21 at 10 AM at Bob's Red Mill Store, where she'll provide a recipe demonstration along with a book talk, signing, and Q&A (5000 SE International Way, Milwaukie, OR 97222).
