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.
It is also nice to know what you are really eating. For breakfast I believe that fresh fruit is the best way to go. I especially like melon and papaya. For lunch I eat more fruit like apples bananas and perhaps some almonds or walnuts. It s better to eat many little healthy meals during the day. I try to buy only organic fruits however sometimes when I am rushed I purchase "ready to go" containers of mixed fruit at the grocery store. Try to stay away from pineapple as I find it hard to digest. How about starters in the evening? Serving vegetables raw is the ultimate healthy way to present them. Try creating a beautiful platter of crudité (crew di tay) better known as elegant rabbit food. Serve it with a savory tofu dip. Use cauliflower broccoli English cucumbers radishes green & yellow zucchinis Belgium endive carrot sticks whole small mushrooms or whatever appeals to you. Cut the vegetables in bite size pieces for dipping.

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.
