Sweet Potato Casserole Vegan Gluten Free Nut Free Soy Free
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.
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.

The Belgium endive is a natural edible scoop for dipping. Just cut off the ends and peel off the leaves. Make the tofu dip by putting one package of soft or silken tofu in a food processor or blender adding garlic powder cumin paprika and chopped chives or parsley for flavor and color. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Add a little fresh squeezed lemon juice if the mixture is too thick. Process until smooth and creamy. If you are in a rush ready made dips and raw vegetable platters are available in the produce sections of most supermarkets but make a concerted effort to eat only organic if possible. I hope that you enjoy the following dishes. Even though I have cured myself of acid reflux I still cook these recipes on a regular basis. I prefer food slightly under cooked. Feel free to adjust the cooking times and seasonings to your own taste.
