Does anyone have any suggestions on what cookbook they've used and loved. There's too many out there for me to decide. I can't, for the life of me pick one! I feel like I'm starving these days cause I try really hard to not eat the "BAD TRIGGER" foods. I loved to go grocery shopping...until today! I left there with just a bunch of vegtables. I got so ******off that my last stop of the day, I bought a box of Drumstick IceCream Cones. For those who don't know what these are...it's vanilla ice cream in a sugar cone, top dipped in chocolate, sprinkled with peanuts and has a caramel swirl through the middle. yummm...This could put me in a really yucky place but buying it made me feel OKAY again. Am I going crazy or what? heheh!
Hope everyone is feeling good today....

There is one cookbook that has always been a favourite of mine. At the very least, this cookbook is excellent for your heart. I found that after using the recipes on an ongoing basis over a period of 2-3 months, you can actually feel your blood circulate more freely. It feels good! The Beef Stir Fry, Spaghetti Sauce and Soup recipes are my favourites.

Hope you enjoy.

Hi C-layne,

I don't have a cookbook but I have found that making things from scratch and very basic has worked for me. Some meals that work well for me are:

Steak, asparagus, and potatoes
Roast beef (roasted myself, no gravy), potatoes, carrots and brussel sprouts
Chicken, white rice, corn,
Pasta and sauce (canned sauce as long as you read the ingredients and there are no preservatives or MSG)
Salmon, rice, mixed vegetables

Sushi - no seaweed (it triggers headaches for me, Soy Sauce may trigger headaches for some)
If I season anything I use salt and pepper and / or seasoning salts / spices ensuring there are no preservatives or MSG.
I hope this helps a bit. I find the food list in Heal Your Headache: The 123 Program really helpful.
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.   Buddha
