Acid reflux and heartburn recipes | Gert diet plans and recommendations

Peanut butter muffins

Foods that help with acid reflux

Non-citrus fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and unprocessed grains – aka, healthy eating.

Think about acid reflux as a reaction to poor habits rather than to specific foods. Things like eating late at night, snacking unhealthily, consuming foods high in fat and low in nutrients, are all correlated with experiencing acid reflux.

Small steps can help you reduce the chances of experiencing acid reflux.

Exchange carb heavy meals with vegetable-based dishes. Snack on fruit rather than chocolate. Reduce your coffee intake and drink more tea or water.

What’s important is finding something that works for you, so experiment! Keep a diet diary, keeping track of what and when you’ve eaten, and how you’ve reacted to it.

Let’s get you started – here are two acid reflux-resistant recipes:

I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

What Our Members Think

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

I'm extremely happy with CBHS! I have been a customer for about six years. I think the price is reasonable. And i would refer you to my family and friends any day. Thank you CBHS!!!

What Our Members Think

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
