I have many favorite recipes from my childhood, and some I came across as an adult. After being diagnosed with GERD more than 20 years ago, I feared I would have to give up those dishes. Over the years, however, I found ways of adapting recipes so that I could still eat those old favorites. It is often just a matter of substituting a reflux-producing ingredient with one that I knew was safe for me to eat.
The following categories of recipes have been adapted so that they are heartburn-friendly for most people. Try them out! You can also share your own favorite recipes.
