How many people would like to see a cookbook that eliminates all triggers?

4/18/09: Anyone who would like recipes that follow Dr. David Buchholz's diet, visit

I sure would!! I've been looking for a cookbook like this for several years now. I'm frustrated with the so-called migraine-prevention cookbooks which eliminate only some or most of the triggers. I need a cookbook filled with recipes which have NONE of the triggers in Dr. Buchholz's list.

I'm glad I'm not the only one looking. I've been searching for over a year and have not found one.

I would also love to find a cookbook like this. I think I have all of the food triggers he mentions and while I've been successful in lessening my headaches, I feel I need more variety in my diet. I can share with you the places that I found useful to shop and foods that I've grown accustomed to cooking and how. I'd love to know what other people make/ eat.

I'd sure love to see one! I started a yahoo group for this very reason - to get discussion going about what we can actually eat on 'The Migraine Diet." To share recipes, ideas for broth substitutions, and so on. The name of the group is I imagine if gazillions of people join it (so far it's just me), Dr. Buchholz might get the idea a cookbook would be a hot seller!!

To respond to both of you, sounds like a good idea. I'll be sure to visit the website. Thanks for replying.

I've been making my own--reading through my cookbooks, finding recipes that fit or only have 1 or 2 of the triggers and I try out substitutes. Been entering them in my Palm so I have them at the grocery store. I don't think this forum lets you do attachments though. I could put in one at a time if you have a request. (No shellfish though-- I'm allergic, and I don't eat potatoes, rice or much corn).

Oh wait, does it violate copyright to share recipes from various sources? I mostly look in Low Carb, Diabetic, and Heart Healthy type mags because they emphasize fresh ingredients and give nutrition counts. (I swore a few years ago after the umpteenth time a food switched from healthy to unhealthy to healthy that I'd never buy a recipe book without it having the nutrition info so I could evaluate it when stuff changed in value one more time!) I just sub in distilled vinegar for any other type, leeks or spring onions for white ones. ricotta cheese for similar textures.

Heidi is an angel. I've created a blog that helps beginning cooks know where to start. I knew little about cooking when my wife went on the diet and have immersed myself in cooking to get past that. I created a blog for others finding themselves in my position:

Hopefully it will save some people a bit of the pain I had getting started. It does not replace Heidi's work - there are links to recipes, but a lot of my blog is about techniques that can be used to get started and eventually improvise.
