I’m Amy, and I like to eat things that don’t make my esophagus burn, my voice hoarse, and my throat choke with mucus. I’m describing the dreaded acid reflux, otherwise known as GERD.
I was diagnosed with the condition in 2018 and after trying a vegetarian diet for a while, I landed on the winner: a low-acid diet that starts with an intense elimination phase that helped me tackle my personal triggers. Learn more about it here.
Actually, I’m still working on it—many of the recipes currently on the site need massive updating to be in line with this lifestyle.
For now, check out my recipe for a low-acid strawberry banana smoothie, and then check back in later for updates and tips for not only cooking but also exercise and mental wellness.
