Certain foods can be the reason why you have heartburn or GERD. Although some foods can aggravate heartburn, but there are others that can calm the stomach acid that is making its way through your esophagus.
Try the following foods if you want to manage your heartburn properly.
Whole wheat pasta with olive-oil or white sauces: Tomato sauce is acidic and a surefire way to serve you up some heartburn. So go for a light Alfredo sauce or olive-oil sauce instead. Choose whole wheat pasta over white pasta since high-fiber foods can help alleviate symptoms.
Oatmeal is just about the best breakfast and any-time-of-day snack recommended by The Reflux Diet. It’s filling and doesn’t cause reflux. Even instant oatmeal with raisins is “legal” because the oatmeal absorbs the acidity of the raisins.
You’ll start your day off with fewer digestive issues if you blend an almond milk smoothie for breakfast. “If you tend to have reflux, almond milk is a great balancer,” Chutkan says. “It’s alkaline so it helps neutralize acidic foods. To make a filling smoothie that tastes great, try blending together 1 cup of strawberries, 1 frozen banana to make it creamy, one 1 of unsweetened almond milk and 1 cup of spinach.”
I hope these suggestions can help you to soothe your heartburn.
