As a sufferer of chronic sinus migraines, I have reluctantly come to realize that grains, dairy and I just don’t get along. For more than 10 years I was gluten-free. Giving up gluten helped rid my body of chronic psoriasis and arthritis. However, my sinus headaches persisted and gradually worsened over the years.
I searched for a reason, an ailment that could explain my sinus problems, even visiting specialists, but to no avail. My ENT doctor checked my sinuses and even sent me for MRI’s and other scans, which all came back clean. She said the migraines are more than likely food related.
So as a nutrition junky, I knew all about the elimination diet and gave it a try. Unfortunately, the elimination diet eliminates dairy and gluten, but not all grains, since oats and rice are allowed on most plans.
It wasn’t until I tried the paleo diet that my headaches finally began to subside. Now my diet is paleo approximately 95% of the time. The other 5% of the time, I allow myself indulgences, including gluten containing foods such as cakes, cookies as well as certain comfort foods and dairy. I find if I indulge in only one or two meals or so a week, my headaches remain at bay.
With that said, there are times when I’m eating healthy that I just need some comfort foods. Today, I’ve searched the internet’s plethora of Paleo sites for paleo versions of some popular comfort foods! ENJOY!
This recipe contains dairy.
For a true paleo version, consider using dairy-free mozzarella.
