No Time for Heartburn

Heartburn-Easing Foods That Fight GERD

If you have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), how you eat is almost as important as what you eat. That means slow it down, no late-night snacks, and don't hit the hay right after meals. But choosing food wisely is also key.

Beans

Certain fatty meats, such as ground beef, are thought to trigger heartburn. Beans are an excellent source of protein and fiber and a great alternative to meat. If you have GERD, they should be a regular feature in your diet.

Try these recipes:

• Classic Jamaican Rice and Peas*
Chorizo White Bean Soup
Pennsylvania Dutch Beans

*This recipe contains a small amount of allspice, which may cause GERD to flare. Eliminate it from the recipe if you suspect it will trigger heartburn.
