I suffer from horrible migraines. Unfortunately, they are a side effect of another medication I take. It seems to be the only medication that works on my symptoms so I have to continue to take it on a weekly basis. Which means, weekly migraines. This week has been worse than usual though, since I’m on day 3 of this migraine.
I’ve had a few friends give me some recommendations to help alleviate some of the pain. Seeking a specialist is probably the best idea I’ve gotten (thanks, Michelle). Next best, is this Smoothie that is supposed to help with the migraine (Thanks, Devon). I only received a picture with a recipe on it, no actual post. I did some research though, and found a few versions of this Migraine Smoothie. I’m starting with the simplest recipe, then I’ll make some changes or additions the next time I make it.
Here’s the basic recipe I’ve been making for the last two days.
- 1/2 cup crushed pineapple
- 1 celery stalk
- 1/2 cucumber, peeled
- 3-4 kale leaves, torn
- 1/4 lemon, squeezed for juice
Blend all ingredients in blender until smoothie consistency.
I will tell you that this is not for the faint of heart. You must like all the ingredients to enjoy this smoothie. 😉 I actually like it, but my hubby won’t get anywhere near me while I’m drinking it. I did find a few recipes that included coconut water and I’m thinking of trying that with the next smoothie I make.
I’m going to continue drinking these for a few days and see if it helps the migraine or not. It’s definitely worth a try and includes ingredients that are good for me. Here’s to getting rid of this migraine.
