OK, first an introduction: I have been following Dr. Buchholz's advice for three years or so, and Heal Your Headache: The 1-2-3 Program for Taking Charge of Your Pain changed my life. I've gone from having 15 headache days a month to about three, and my headaches aren't devastating like they used to be. Like Gunderson and other migraine-sufferers, I've had to do some fancy footwork avoiding headache triggers at restaurants and in recipes. I do very much appreciate the intentions that went with the creation of this cookbook.

So it was with high hopes that I ordered Migraine-Free Cooking!. (Especially based on the other reviews.) But the exclamation point in the title should have warned me: this is not the book I was hoping for. It's often elementary: a recipe for boiling eggs???? Many recipes offered, like for Sugar Cookies or Garlic Broccoli and Cauliflower, would never have had triggers in them in the first place: I was expecting the cookbook to show recipes that often have triggers but show how to replace those triggers with an acceptable substitute. (For example, offer us a pancake batter without buttermilk.)

What I was really wanting when I ordered the book was help replacing triggers, like lemon, that commonly show up in recipes. The subtitle, which does give some helpful information, was not obvious on the webpage (or at least I missed it): "A Tyramine, Caffeine, MSG, Nitrate, Nitrite, Sulfite, and Chocolate-Free Cookbook for Migraine Sufferers.

Great buy for those trying to following a migraine prevention diet!
I just bought this cookbook after reading Buchholz' book "Heal Your Headache: The 1-2-3 Program for Taking Charge of Your Pain". This book is based on the 1-2-3 Program and has significantly helped me with the new diet I've undertaken to eliminate food triggers and (hopefully) my migraines. I've suffered for 15 years and need relief! After realizing I needed to be on a strict diet for at least four months to 'prove' that many foods could actually be triggering my heachaches, I panicked because all of the recipes I'm used to cooking contained something I could not eat! Even the simplest entrees and sides had onions or a store bought package (containing MSG). This book has many simple recipes that eliminate all the food triggers mentioned in the 1-2-3 Program by Buchholz. Nothing fancy or overly hard to cook and I like that. The author has a great website and blog as well, both have been very helpful. I am only 3 weeks into my program, so I can't really make any profound statements on if it's helping with headaches or not, but I'm hopeful and this book is full of tasty recipes and even some new ideas for me. I didn't think I could live without chocolate, but there are some great desserts I've tried without it!

I really liked the idea of this cookbook but actual cookbook was quite a disappointment (in fact, I returned it).

The idea is great: A cookbook written by a migraine sufferer who has done the research to help others who suffer. I was especially interested in learning more substitutions for trigger foods.
However, the finished product was extremely disappointing both scientifically and as someone who loves to cook.

First, after all the author’s research on migraines and nutrition, I expected to have less information about her own migraine experience and more scientific knowledge (and I would have expected her to list more than two or three references). In addition, the lack of nutritional and serving size information for the recipes was disturbing for someone studying nutrition.

As far the recipes, this book is also disappointing. Very few substitutes for common trigger foods are listed besides using shallots instead of onions and sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter (commonly known). One of the only recipes that I found helpful to use for substitutions was for soy sauce. Further, as others have noted, many of the recipes listed normally would not contain triggers any way (e.g., sugar cookies, boiling eggs). If you were very inexperienced with cooking before starting this diet, the basic recipes may be fine but this is not an appropriate cookbook for those with advanced knowledge or skill.

I understand the goodwill of this project but the execution does not live up to the conceptual idea behind the cookbook.

To call this a collection of "recipes" is an embarrassment to the genre of books known cookbooks.

This book was purchased by my mother in hopes that it would be a great accompaniment to Buchholz's book "Heal Your Headache: The 1-2-3 Program for Taking Charge of Your Pain" and I was excited to give it a try. However when I opened up the package I was disappointed to find a sad picture of raw vegetables that looked like it had been taken on a cell phone or with a poor quality digital camera on someone's kitchen table. The overall format of the book is that of a at home mom with little word or image processing abilities.

The recipes are short and could easily be come up with on the fly by any competent home cook, in fact my childhood cookbook had more difficult and delicious recipes. Most of the recipes were one or two lines and were of complete common sense, seriously did I really need to pay for a recipe for making pain breadcrumbs or instant oatmeal?

Overall this "cookbook" was a major disappointment and a waste of money especially since any useful information was cited from "the book behind the diet".
