Besides eating the wrong foods not chewing food properly is probably the root cause of this ailment. The Acid reflux condition would not exist without a damaged esophagus and a weakened LES (lower esophageal sphincter). If the condition is to be eliminated healing the esophagus must be the first order of business. During this reflux recovery period eating anything which could irritate or damage the esophagus must be avoided. Things like poorly chewed chips crackers cereal or any hard foods with sharp edges are culinary culprits - they cause little lacerations to develop in the esophagus. Until the lacerations have had a chance to heal spicy foods such as acidic tomato products hot peppers raw garlic and raw onions should also be eliminated from the diet. They just further irritate the condition.
Smoking and drinking alcohol relax the LES allowing stomach acid to splash up into the esophagus thus impeding the healing process. The key to acid reflux recovery is to eat only mild easy to digest food until the esophagus has healed. Eat early giving yourself at least three hours of sitting or walking time before lying down. Eat slowly and chew your food completely. And last but not least try to eat in a relaxed pleasant environment. I have listed a few of my favorite recipes that I enjoyed during my own recovery period. They can be made quickly and easily. Try doubling these recipes so that you can reheat them later in the week.....less time in the kitchen. Remember that cooking from scratch instead of relying on convenience foods is a better approach to good health in general.

I can not tell you how many times I ve called my mom and said "mom I just have to have your recipe for such and such". It s been a slow accumulation of recipes but she chuckles each time I realize I need yet another recipe from her. Now that I have an adult daughter of my own I really wanted to pass the recipes on to her also. Many of these recipes she s been eating since she was old enough for solids. My daughter also has a recipe book from her aunt on her dad s side. Recipe scrapbooks can be given to aunts uncles cousins children etc. A 6x6 scrapbook works wonderfully. They are large enough to hold a 3x5 index card. You can also use an 8x8 scrapbook and have the recipes on paper instead of index cards. I think it s a great mix to combine photos and recipes.
