Heard today on NPR: What's Triggering Your Migraine?

Included at the site is a list of food triggers in PDF format. Most of it I already knew, but I was surprised to see soybean products on it and would be sad if they triggered migraines for me.


Vogon picked up a bottle of Dr Pepper Berries & Cream to try. It tastes like Dr Pepper and cream soda with just a hint of berries. I like it better than Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper, which I thought the vanilla flavor was too aggressively fake-tasting, but not enough that I'd buy it again.

Perhaps I should cut back on my HFCS intake and start buying Dr Pepper-flavored lip balm.

being as how i've been grounded for a while, i'm waiting for one of my not grounded peeps to bring me home cans or even better yet, bottles of the new flavors of dp. :D

you just keep on reviewing them for me, so i don't feel so out of touch, ok, sweetie?

Would you like 20 ounce bottles? Regular or diet?

oh, diet, of course, i've been so darned careful about the diabetic thing. :P

i know it's not permenent, and soon sugar won't be an issue, but i still reserve bitching rights. :D

heck, even after my sugars are fine, i'll probably still go with very little soda, and that diet. cause if i have 150 calories, i'ld rather eat it than drink it. (unless it's a pinapple shake. then all bets are off.)

Oh, thanks for the NPR link. I didn't catch it this morning, so it's interesting. I don't suffer from migraines, but I have lots of friends who do. Mind if I link it in the future?

You can always use the Bonnie Belle old school Dr. Pepper Lip Smackers. They still have them at Target, which I think is hilarious!

I tried the DP too and it's okay. A little too sweet, even for me.

MSG is a migraine trigger for my brother, so I grew up without it in my diet.

I boggled as an adult when I saw it sold as a single ingredient in a grocery store.

I associate Dr Pepper lip balm with you, you know. (;
