What to Eat if You Have Acid Reflux Symptoms

When you have acid reflux symptoms, it might feel like you suffer after every meal you eat. On top of that, if you’re trying to avoid the long list of foods that might trigger your symptoms, it might feel like you’re running out of options. Take a look at these acid reflux friendly foods for health-promoting, reflux-free food ideas.

        1.  Almonds and other nuts

Nuts, and almonds especially tend to be gentle on the stomach and some people even report reduced acid reflux symptoms from eating almonds.

2.  Whole Grains

White breads and pasta are notorious for leading to acid reflux symptoms. In fact, gluten, a protein found in wheat and similar grains, may be the source of your acid reflux.

3.  Greens

Eat them as salad or cooked. Greens are easy to digest and nutrient dense.

 4.  Poultry

Chicken and turkey are naturally lower in fat and can be a great protein source if you notice fatty foods trigger your symptoms.

5.  Cheese alternatives

Cheese adds flavor to your meal, but it can be a big trigger of reflux. Try substituting nutritional yeast, a pinch of sea salt, or the sesame-based seasoning called gamasio instead.
