Tuna Salad and Dr. Buchholz

So far so good.  We’re starting small.  Hoping for 2 weeks without a headache.  That would be nice.  We got a books called Heal Your Headache by Dr. David Buchholz.  It echoes a lot of my own “internet research” but its nice to know that an authority figure has come to similar conclusions.  The book has a number of food lists as well as other suggestions I hadn’t found yet.  I’m a little concerned that our 2 weeks aren’t going to happen this week because the book suggests giving up caffeine and people often get headaches eliminating caffeine.  Oh well…at least the tuna was good :).  Most delicious tuna salads require lots of relish or onions.  I found one equally yummy recipe without any of those ingredients.  In fact, I probably would stick with this recipe even if Hubster could eat relish and onions.  Eat it with bread or on lettuce.
