Acid Reflux Recipes

Updated on April 13, 2009

Are There Acid Reflux Recipes That Actually Taste Good?

As you are looking for acid reflux recipes, the first thing you want to try to do is to change what you eat. Remove from your diet all drinks that contain caffeine, alcoholic beverages, fatty and fried foods, spicy foods, citrus fruits, and chocolate. While at first, this may seem like a difficult task, you will find in the long run that you can make food taste good.

Secondly, you are aiming for acid reflux recipes that are both low in sodium and in fat. Before you starting screaming, you really can make food that tastes good with small amounts of either salt or fat. I used to be addicted to the stuff. You will be surprised at how quickly you make the transition and your pain will be gone as well.

A hint: Chewing gum is good way to neutralize acid instantly, which will result in split second relief. Similarly, honey and aloe juices produce the same kind of instant relief by counteracting acid in the throat. You can find both honey and aloe at your local Walmart.

Acid Reflux Recipes #1 - Strawberry Banana Smoothie

This recipe needs to made directly before eating since it does not keep well.

1/4 cup non-fat yogurt

1 cup fresh strawberries

1/2 cup ice or rice milk

1/2 banana

Put all the ingredients in a blender for 30 - 60 seconds and serve.

Acid Reflux Recipes #2 - Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Serves 4

This dough will keep for about 36 hours in the refrigerator if wrapped tightly in plastic wrap. It will not be as good as fresh.

1 cup warm water

1 tsp dry active yeast

4 tsp honey

2 cups whole wheat flour

1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 tsp salt

Place the yeast and honey in a large mixing bowl and pour the heated water over the mixture, stirring until well blended. Let the mixture stand for about 5 - 7 minutes until foamy.

Add the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour and salt and stir with a fork until a coarse dough forms.

Continue to mix by hand until a dough ball forms and all the flour is well blended.

Cover the bowl and place it in a sink with about 4 inches of hot water in the bottom. The heat from the warm water will help the dough rise. The dough will double in size in about 30 - 40 minutes. Punch it a few times with your fingers and let it rise another 30 minutes.

Remove from the bowl and cut the ball into four equal pieces. Cover the dough that you are not going to use immediately in plastic wrap and chill.

Acid Reflux Recipes #3 French Onion Pizza - Low Sodium Version

Serves 2

This recipe also requires making Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

This recipe does not make very good leftovers.

1/2 whole wheat pizza dough recipe

spray olive oil

2 large white onions (sliced)

1 cup low sodium chicken stock

fresh ground black pepper (to taste)

4 ounces reduced fat Swiss cheese (grated)

While the pizza dough is proofing place a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Spray lightly with olive oil and add the onions. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onions begin to brown. Adjust the heat so that the onions won't burn but caramelize well.

When the onions are well browned add the chicken stock and pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until all of the liquid has evaporated. Turn the heat off.

Place a pizza stone or a cookie sheet in the oven and preheat to 500°F.

When the pizza dough is finished make two small pizza crusts about 10 inches in diameter.

Evenly spread half of the caramelized onions over each pizza crust. Top each pizza with half of the cheese and place the pizza in the oven. Cook for about 5 minutes. Turn the pizza around 180° and cook for another 5 - 8 minutes until the crust is cooked and the cheese melted.
