I would suggest waiting a few days- go dairy free again- and then try it again but this time with organic heavy cream and see the reaction you have then- there may be a difference in how you feel- Restaurants do not use full heavy cream- they use... (more)

There are plenty of high-calorie things you can eat-especially if you eat dairy - such as cream. You may want to explore the amount of sugar you're loading on the early part of the day as the reason for your headaches.
