The problem is that migraines do not usually follow the trigger immediately.  From this Migraine Trust Fact Sheet:
People with migraine often avoid cheese, chocolate, citrus fruits and red wine. For most people, however, just avoiding certain foods will not prevent their migraines occurring as the situation is more complicated than that. Trigger factors seem to build up over a period of time and together result in a migraine attack. This helps to explain why, if you have a tendency to migraine, you might eat a certain food on one day and have no ill effects whereas on another day you will experience a migraine.

Your best bet would be to keep a migraine diary, track when you get them and what you've eaten, sleep patterns, hormonal changes(mostly if your female), weather, stimulus (ie, noise, lights, strong odors) that you've been exposed to leading up to the migraine. Google migraine triggers to see what sorts of things you should track (  www.google.ca/search) You should ask your parents what causes theirs, migraines are hereditary, but I don't know if the triggers are.

.  Great answer. As Kiteman points out, the migraine does not necessarily immediately follow the trigger and oftimes there is more than one trigger involved. A diary/log will help make the connection(s).
