Heart beat skips after eating. Stress test does not show abnormalities. Sign of food allergy or magnesium deficiency?

My heart skips beats after eating, especially after an evening meal. I wore a monitor for two weeks in September of last year, but it didn t show anything abnormal. My stress test didn t show any abnormalities either. I just started noticing the missing beats in December. It doesn t happen every time I eat. I know my heart is missing beats because I ve monitored my pulse and it coincides with the feeling I get in my chest. I ve read that it could be a symptom of food allergies or a lack of magnesium . Of course I m writing because I want an opinion.

Was it a holter monitoring? If it has not picked up any arrhythmias then it is unlikely that you have some major problem. Was there any of such symptom like missed beats during continuous monitoring?
It is unusual and rare to see this type of aggravation after meals.
Food allergy may not cause this.
Low Magnesium in the blood can cause changes in the heart rhythm.
