On February 14, 2017 The Migraine Relief Plan debuted in the world. I couldn’t be prouder of this book or the lives it’s touched in the last two years. I have traveled the country meeting migraine sufferers at wellness events and patient education days. I have more than 800 members of our Facebook support group who help each other on a daily basis. And I’m thrilled to see that it sells consistently on Amazon, knowing that doctors all over the country are recommending it to their patients.
When I asked my readers’ group what I should do to celebrate this milestone, the obvious answer was “birthday cake!” So I hereby present this tasty recipe for simple vanilla cupcakes with rich, buttercream-like frosting that is of course, migraine-friendly. A huge shout-out to my friend Ricki Heller’s book Naturally Sweet & Gluten-Free: Allergy-Friendly Vegan Desserts: 100 Recipes Without Gluten, Dairy, Eggs, or Refined Sugar for the inspiration. I highly recommend her book, as she’s a genius with desserts for people on special diets.
Just a note: As with all desserts, this is meant to be eaten in moderation. Yes, there’s a little sugar in them.
