Acid Reflux Diet Tips
I have suffered from for a few years and I have tried many different methods to get rid of the symptoms because I know first hand how it can be really annoying and painful at times. So I have come up with some great tasting recipes you should try if you also have acid reflux. acid reflux
So you probably know the first thing you want to do is change the way you eat if you want real relief! First I will give you a list of things that you should not eat and then we will get into the tasty recipes.
The first thing you should either cut out completely or reduce substantially is caffeine which includes of course coffee. You can drink decaf but limit it to a cup a day. Personally this was the hardest for me because I love coffee!
The next is alcohol. This one is a biggie for me. I am not really a drinker but occasionally I like a glass of wine or a nice dark beer. But every time I drink even one I regret it that night when I'm trying to sleep. Alcohol just wrecks havoc on my reflux! I'm sure it's the same for anyone who has it too. So just try to remove it completely.
Another one is deep fried or high fat foods like fried chicken, or those yummy funnel cakes you get at the fair. These kinds of foods will aggravate your acid reflux so it's better to just cut them out. There are alternatives so hold on they are coming up.
And finally spicy foods. I am going to put a little compromise on this. You can eat spicy food just find out which one aggravates your reflux the most. If you can't live without spicy food just modify what you eat. Maybe just have a mild spice instead.
Okay. Now onto the yummy recipes.
The first one is my favorite smoothie.
I came up with this one just playing around one day with my Vitamix. Now I know that the Vitamix is not a machine that everyone owns because it is quite pricey but if you have a really good smoothie machine it will work fine.
Note: I use blueberries in my recipes and some people are sensitive to blueberries because they can be high in acid. They don't trigger any problems with my acid reflux so I eat them. If you want to you can substitute them with another berry.
Beth's Berrie Banana Smoothie
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup ice
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1 whole banana
1 Tablespoon Cacao nibs
1 Tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon flax seed oil
1/2 cup fresh baby spinach
Blend for about 2 min. Drink :)
I add the spinach, flax seed oil and cacao bits to make it really rich and to make it full of antioxidants. I am a huge advocate of using natural ingredients in almost all of my recipes! The cacao nibs can be found at any health food store or online at Amazon. I will put a link here so you can find them. The cacao nibs are super healthy and have a ton of health benefits. I add spinach because they provide fiber and lots of healthy vitamins. And flax seed oil is packed with Omega 3, fatty acids and fiber.

This is what I love to eat in the morning!
This one is super simple and anyone can do it. I just want to share with you that even simple foods such as this can make a huge difference in the way you feel and believe me when I say you will almost completely get rid of your acid reflux with these recipes.
So here is my super simple Oatmeal Berrie recipe. Well, it's not really a recipe, it's just putting together a healthy breakfast. Anyway here it is...
Buy steel cut oats for this one. I use coach's oats. I get a huge bag at Costco.
For one serving use 1/3 cup of oat's to 1 cup of water or almond milk if you like it creamier. (I use water) Now, I like to microwave it but you can cook it on the stove top.
When your oats are done, add fresh berries like blueberries, or raspberries and then add honey. Drizzle the honey over the berries and oats. It is sooo yummy! Simple but really good and super healthy!

Here is my healthy Omelet recipe. I eat this one sometimes for breakfast and sometimes for lunch. Another super simple but healthy alternative to heavy fatty breakfasts.
Note: You can substitute the blueberries for other berries. I just love blueberries.
1 egg white
1 whole egg (with yoke)
1 once of mushrooms
1 Tblsp. white onion
1 pinch salt
1 pinch pepper
1 small pat of real butter
1 ounce of shredded cheese
I just cook the egg in a small pan and then as the egg starts to bubble a little and looks like it's setting up enough, I start adding the ingredients for the inside. I flip it over with one side and cook for an additional minute or two and then I enjoy :)
Veggie Tortilla Pizza
Made with no tomato sauce
If you like thin crust pizza and lots of vegetables, you are going to love this one! I like to eat fresh food as much as possible. It tastes so much better. I might have issues with acid reflux but I like to eat my pizza too. I just leave the tomato sauce out. Instead I make a homemade pizza with a tortilla.
I make fresh pesto sauce with olive oil, fresh garlic, fresh basil, Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper. I spread the pesto on the tortilla and then sprinkle some mozzarella cheese on top of that and then add mushrooms, green pepper and other veges I like.
