Here Are 8 Foods That Can Trigger Migraines

  Here Are 8 Foods That Can Trigger Migraines Certain foods—like chocolate, cheese, and coffee—are thought to trigger migraines. Learn more about these and other culprits, plus the foods and eating habits that might help prevent migraines. The post Here Are 8 Foods That Can Trigger Migraines appeared first on The Healthy.

As the star of many vegetarian recipes, the subject of so many love-letter Instagram memes, and a versatile staple in Greek and Cypriot cuisine, halloumi, often nicknamed the "squeaky cheese," is a fan favorite—whether you are eating it raw, frying, baking, or grilling it. There are so many calcium-packed halloumi recipes, in fact, that it's hard to know where to start. Hint: This list is a good intro to cooking with the semi-hard, brined cheese, which can be made from cow's, sheep's, or goat's milk.

One of the reasons that halloumi is so versatile is because it doesn't act the same way other cheeses like a gruyere or a cheddar may during cooking because of its high melting point. As a result, its consistency is less melty and gooey, and more chewy and thick, making it a great meat substitute. The flavor of the cheese is also saltier than many of its shelf mates, which means that it doesn't require as many seasonings to prepare.

Though high in fat and sodium, halloumi also sports a pretty impressive nutritional profile: The cheese has 19 grams of protein (a key to healthy aging) per serving, and is an excellent source of calcium, with over 70 percent of the recommended daily allowance for adults per portion. This makes it a great alternative to red meat for burgers or to throw on the grill. Additionally, halloumi also contains zinc, selenium, magnesium, and vitamins A and B. "A healthy portion size of halloumi is about 80 grams," which equates to roughly a palm-sized piece.

a close up of a sandwich: Hamburgers aren’t the enemy, but ones the size of your head, are. If hosting your own cookout, choose a leaner ground beef mix and carefully measure out patty sizes (try Cusinart's burger press, which helps you easily create perfectly portioned disks) to ensure you’re not overdoing it. “I like a 75 percent lean 25 percent fat beef mix, which delivers a lot of flavor and stays moist. If you go any lower, it can sometimes get chalky,” says Jens Dahlmann, corporate executive chef for LongHorn Steakhouse and vice president of culinary development. You can also play around with other leaner proteins, like lamb, bison, or turkey (try Jennie-O’s ground turkey or pre-formed patty options); just be careful not to over-grill them, since the leaner the cut, the easier it is to overcook and be left with tough meat. “Beef is the king of burgers, but lamb is a better-for-you red meat and has a lot of flavor to it. Pair it with some tomato, red onion, cucumber, and a little bit of feta and it’s very simple but satisfying,” he says.

The dish is filling, great to feed the whole family, and the smoky paprika and potpourri of other spices give it an earthy, smoky, elevated taste and smell that make it feel different than your regular pasta dish go-tos.
