Many foods start the flares for me. Soy of any kind is awful. Milk I can tolerate in small amounts before I notice trouble starting, so I limit my intake. I am also celiac, so no wheat, barley, rye, oats, etc. I tested positive to many other foods and my allergist and my rheumatologist thinks the multiple and severe allergies and the lupus are all linked together, As you get more familiar with your "triggers" you will begin to know what and when to avoid. Good Luck!
Take care, Fran
