    Watch for triggers

    It takes a few times of eating certain foods to figure out what will cause a headache. For me it was some candies and some spices. I now trie to stay away from these and see if other items seem to bring one on.

    Sugar in general can be a trigger. It is not as much spices as artificial flavors and colors and MSG, which is often disguised as "natural flavoring" or "hydrolyzed protein" and many other names.
