5 Easy Healthy Acid Reflux-Friendly Weeknight Dinner Ideas
These quick and easy acid reflux-friendly dinner ideas will help you plan ahead for weeknight meals that are both nutritious and don’t trigger GERD symptoms.
Before I was aware that I had GERD, I was utterly clueless as to why I was dealing with multiple unpleasant symptoms: nausea, chest pain, dental issues, anxiety, etc. All I knew was that these symptoms were affecting my sleep, social life, and overall well-being.
After being diagnosed with GERD and making the decision to treat it naturally, I decided a major diet and lifestyle overhaul were in order.
Over the years I’ve learned that changing your diet is one of the most important parts of treating GERD. And feeling lost after being diagnosed while attempting to navigate through this new way of eating is completely normal.
Planning ahead and having a rotation of acid reflux-friendly meals can eliminate the stress and anxiety of these diet changes. This makes it so much easier to stick to a lifestyle of eating that offers healing.
In the post below you’ll find my go-to healthy weeknight recipes. Some showcase lean meats, others call for jasmine rice and fresh vegetables, and still, others are made without grains at all. They’re all similar in that they rely on simple, wholesome ingredients that come together quickly and easily into a delicious and nutritious GERD-friendly meal. Check them out! I’m sure you’ll find one you love.
