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.
For example instead of just serving plain old corn some new recipes include adding in some avocado and salsa and also some green and red peppers. Another way to spice up corn is to cook the entire cob on a grill with some lime juice and chili powder. Other side dish recipes that have been spiced up over the years include eggplant and green beans. Instead of just serving plain cooked eggplant many individual are opting to bake it and stuff it with things like bread crumbs and chopped shrimp. The recipe for doing this consist of taking four whole eggplants and washing them under hot water. The next step is to cut off the top of the eggplant and then take a sharp knife and cut the core out. Inside the cut out area put in some pieces of chopped shrimp and seasoned bread crumbs.

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.
