Acid Reflux Diet Recipes

Updated February 21, 2017

The key to living with acid reflux is changing your diet to include foods that will not harm your oesophagus further. To find the right diet, it is important to understand what foods irritate your condition. Avoid alcohol, and spicy or acidic foods. Also, smoking, eating late, and not chewing your food well can irritate the condition. Instead, the best foods for acid reflux are fresh vegetables and fruits, lean meats, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. By eating right, you can easily deal with acid reflux and live a normal, comfortable life.

Vegetable Broth

Vegetable broth is a great acid reflux recipes, and can be eaten as a snack or used to add rich flavour to other recipes. It is a great addition to any recipe because it is rich in vitamins and minerals. To make vegetable broth, add a variety of vegetables such as red-skinned potatoes, celery, beets, squash, zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, onions, and any fresh herbs you enjoy such as parsley or cilantro. Dice the vegetables and add them to water, bringing them to a boil, and then simmer for about 20 minutes. After the soup has finished cooking, strain the veggies out of soup and set them to the side. Use the cooked vegetables as a side dish so they don't go to waste. Adding barley to the soup is a great way to increase the nutrition factor and make the broth a little more filling. If you want to eat the soup immediately, strain the vegetables from soup, divide the soup in half, and add the vegetables back to half of the mixture to serve immediately, while freezing the remaining broth.

Vegetable Omelet

A light omelette is a great way to start your morning, or it is hearty enough to make a great meal for lunch or dinner. To make a veggie omelette, use egg substitute to reduce the cholesterol or use half egg substitute and half real eggs, or use all real eggs. Use any of your favourite vegetables, such as zucchini, mushrooms, peppers, onions, or cherry tomatoes. Sauté the veggies using a non-stick spray to soften them, and then add them to the egg mixture. Pour the egg into the frying pan, cooking over medium heat until it has become mostly solid on top, then fold the omelette in half, and cook for a few remaining minutes until both sides are lightly browned. A variation of this is to not add the veggies to the mixture, but instead cook the egg until it is mostly solid, then add the veggies before you fold the omelette in half so they are sitting in the centre of the omelette. If you are a meat or cheese eater, add bacon, chunks of ham or sausage, and shredded or cubed cheese of your choice.

Oven-Fried Chicken

This recipe is a great, tasty alternative to plain baked chicken. The key to this recipe is marinating it in low-fat buttermilk for at least 30 minutes. Mix flour, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and salt in a separate dish, and then roll each piece of chicken in the dry mixture, coating it thoroughly. Add a layer of oil to the bottom of baking dish, and then place the chicken in the oven, baking at 204 degrees C for 20 to 25 minutes.
