One thing I've noticed over the last week is that our family has been getting more frequent headaches. I've wondered if I'm missing something in my nutrition.
- I don't think our family is sick
- I make sure I am very well hydrated, as I know that can be an inducer
- We're taking daily multi vitamins and calcium
- We're drinking fortified almond milk or soy milk every day
Could it be that I'm not getting enough protein into us? Here's a typical day's menu:
Total cereal with 1 sliced banana, a handful of blueberries or blackberries, almond milk and glass of orange juice
Hummus and boston lettuce on whole grain bread, clementine, glass of almond milk
Sauteed kale and chick peas over corn bread or mashed potatoes, glass of water
Snack - piece of fruit such as granny smith apple, banana or clementine, handful of Kashi GoLean Crunch
Any feedback would be really helpful!
Could be a variety of things depending where you are. We've been dealing with this over the last week as well, but we know that we're sensitive to major weather systems and boy, have we had those over this last week (3 snowstorms in the last week, with more to come!) It just so happens to coincide with the middle of the kickstart but I'm pretty sure it's unrelated.
Another thing to consider is your chewing muscles. You're probably giving your jaw more of a workout with nuts, grains, beans, etc. Tired jaw muscles can trigger muscle tension type headaches. That will likely ease as you get used to the chewing involved in eating whole foods.
