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:
