10 Foods to Eat If You Have Acid Reflux

Is this going to trigger my reflux?

by Adam Carmen

If you have Acid Reflux (GERD) you probably spend your days playing mind games with yourself about everything you might or might not put in your stomach.

Is this going to trigger my reflux?

With that noted, every person is different and what works for one may not work for another. Also all “Acid Reflux” is not the same from one person to another. Some people have High Acid, some people have Low Acid. Some have a weak LES (Lower Esophageal Sphincter) and some have a combination.

Below is a list of 10 foods that are generally well tolerated by people who suffer from Acid Reflux.

Oatmeal

Not everyone’s favorite, but not only does it absorb acid (if you have high acid) but it also keeps you regular!

Ginger

Ginger has been used for centuries to help calm ones intestinal tract. Ginger Root has anti-inflammatory properties which is known to sooth a unhappy stomach

Aloe Vera (juice)

Just like when you have a sunburn and you want to soothe your skin with Aloe. Same principal works here with a burning stomach and or throat. Aloe Juice will help reduce inflammation from your internal burn.

Banana

Very Neutral. Low Acid, Low Alkalinity. Generally well tolerated by those with Reflux.

Avocado

Low Acid, Medium Alkalinity. Generally well tolerated by those with Reflux and Tasty!

Fennel

Fennel has a whole host of health benefits. Especially if you eat a lot of it. But from the perspective of Acid Reflux, eating it raw or cooked generally has a soothing effect on your GI Tract

Low fat chicken

Skinless chicken breast is a safe bet for a healthy, lean source of protein. The lack of high fat content means you will have an easier time digesting.

Salmon

Yes it has fat, but the good kind! Throw it on the grill or roast in the oven.

Rice

Rice is famous for being easy on the stomach. They even give rice products to babies as some of their first food. Very easy to digest and generally well tolerated by those with Reflux

Almonds and Cashews (or Almond or Cashew Butter)

Keep these on you all the time! They are great to cook with but even better for that in-between meals time when you stomach needs something to do. Eat a few handfuls of Almonds or Cashews and you can stave off that “reflux” feeling from your empty stomach.

Does this mean that every meal should be Oatmeal with crushed almonds or a side of Aloe Juice? Or skinless chicken breast with rice? No not really, but these are definitely some examples of Reflux friendly foods you should experiment with, keep on hand and generally use as a go to list of things that don’t cause you pain!
