Last year I discovered that

Last year I discovered that chocolate (well, actually cocoa, so it includes good chocolate with high cocoa content) is one of my two major migraine triggers. Feh.

(But the tradeoff was that I learned that my other - beer - only applied to cheap crappy beer. Good stouts and ales are no problem at all!)

Life is not entirely unfair. :)

How about lagers brewed under

How about lagers brewed under the medieval German purity laws of 1516, like Becks and St. Pauli Girl? Of course, maybe it's not worth it to find out, if a migraine is in the balance. I have gotten a headache from bad beer, but never from a European beer I don't think.

My deepest condolences.

My deepest condolences. Still...I'm glad you can indulge in the stouts and ales.

I am also a huge chocolate

I am also a huge chocolate addict, especially the dark chocolates. M&Ms have always been a favorite of mine. I have several large bags I keep in a secret filing cabinet drawer. When my students see me eating a small handful, they all beg for some. I always just nod, keep chewing away, and tell them that they are my miraculous medicine pills. For holidays and my birthday, I always get gobs and gobs of M&Ms, so the graphic you shared with us has truly hit home. My two favorite things, knitting and M&Ms. Tonight, however, it was chocolate petit fours that got me through tinking back several rows. I really do have to not watch dramatic or singing television shows when I knit. It's so easy to lose count.

Thanks for sharing.

As a huge chocolate addict, I

As a huge chocolate addict, I have to say this makes perfect sense. However, for severe instances, I'd be getting out 75 to 90% dark chocolate.
