    Anyone know if blueberries contain migraine trigger chemicals? I checked Kerrie’s list and couldn’t find them… although my eyes aren’t always the best so maybe I missed them. Trying to put together a safe pie for Thanksgiving and mom has already claimed apple…

    Hi GardensatNight,

    While they don’t trigger a migraine attack for me, it’s possible they can for some. I wish I had a better answer, but what is a trigger for one person may not be for another! Have you tried them? Do they trigger you?

    Let me know!

    I haven’t tried them. So many foods get me and whenever I try to add back a food on the right side of Kerrie’s list, I seem to get a terrible migraine, which makes me really skeevy to try things. Like the only food we’ve found I CAN tolerate that’s on the naughty list is potatoes.

    I just wondered since they aren’t on either list… why? Can you eat strawberries/cherries/grapes? Those all get me.

    Was hoping to be able to make a pie I could actually eat. I’ve gotten a migraine from Thanksgiving three years running now… I dunno what it is… but suspect maybe my family has trouble remembering all the food triggers. Or maybe I just ingest too much milk overall that’s cooked into things.
