Healthy Meals/Snacks for acid reflux
Lately, my stomach problems have been so bad. I get acid reflux which causes terrible heartburn and also a panic attack which feels like a heart attack—no fun. Not to mention my esophagus was being burned so bad I couldn’t swallow food. I was literally choking on anything I tried to eat and was becoming so afraid to eat that I lost a bunch of weight.
So I did some research on alkaline foods that help aid digestion and settle acid reflux. I was disheartened to see that virtually everything I like is pretty much off limits, no dairy, no carbs, no tomato, no garlic, no vinegar, no citrus, no NOTHING. However, I found some creative ways to deal with this problem, and came up with some yummy meals/snacks that incorporate alkaline foods to help heal acid reflux.
1. Buddha bowl
Whole grains are excellent for acid reflux, especially quinoa. So I would make a big batch of quinoa to last me the week.
Then I would roast a bundle of broccolini (far superior to broccoli—I’m sorry) in sesame oil with salt and pepper. I like it to get crispy, but you can do it for 15-20 mins at 450 degrees. Chop in into manageable bites.
At the same time I would roast cauliflower (cut into same sized florets) toss them in olive oil with garlic powder, cumin, turmeric and salt. (Cumin, turmeric are known to help reflux symptoms) 450 degrees, about 25-30 mins
Then I would take a half a cup to a cup of quinoa put the broccoli, cauliflower and mix it all together. Heat in microwave if necessary (if you cook in bulk at the beginning of the week and live off leftovers like I do.)
Then add half an avocado diced.
Toss with sesame oil and spritz with Braggs liquid aminos and boom! Delicious Buddha bowl, very easy on the stomach. You can also add spinach, zucchini, or roasted bell pepper if you so desire. All of those are good for reducing stomach acid!
2. Apple/cranberry Snack
If you are feeling heartburn or indigestion, cut up an apple (I prefer pink lady or jazz apples personally for their crunch), cut up into cubes. Then add some dried cranberries (known to help reduce reflux symptoms). Sprinkle some cinnamon and cardamom on top and—voila! A delicious healthy snack reminiscent of apple pie, that is full of fiber and acid reducing properties. Easy, quick and totally yummy!
I like to use siggi’s yogurt, if you are from outside the US, look for Icelandic style yogurt. Add granola (less sugar the better, I prefer Nana Joe’s here in SF), add blueberries or raspberries.
4. Egg white avocado toast with zataar
I use Tartine bread, but any whole grain bread will do. Toast the bread, make an egg white omelette (egg whites from two eggs in small pan) with salt and pepper, I like to use sesame oil to cook it in a cast iron pan. Put the egg white on top of the toast with avocado thinly sliced and fanned out. Sprinkle some rock salt and zataar on top. Lightly drizzle with olive oil and—Ta Dah! Delicious healthy breakfast that won’t hurt your tummy.
5. Roasted squash with coconut oil
Roast squash at 400 degrees for 30 mins to an hour after tossing with coconut oil, cinnamon and a little nutmeg—tastes just like buttery delicious pumpkin pie with a twist—but healthy!
These have been my daily go-to’s. Also I am vegetarian and very physically active (yoga 30 mins, and running 45 mins everyday plus long walks usually), my crux is that I like to party on weekends. I enjoy craft cocktails, smoking weed, among other substances, and occasionally cigarettes accompany that. This is where my trouble started.
In my 20s I could eat anything, do a pile of drugs, drink an ungodly amount, and nothing would happen to me. Now my nervous system is very delicate, and my body doesn’t recover like it used to. I abused my body far too much as a young adult, and even though I’m only 31, I recognize the importance of taking care of your vessel. I quit smoking years ago, but whenever I do recreational drugs on occasion—I end up smoking. Smoking is a huge cause for acid reflux, as is drinking. So I had to make some huge adjustments to my diet and lifestyle.
Let me just say though—you can enjoy being healthy. You can enjoy putting things in your body that make you feel good, and you can find fun ways to dress up seemingly boring foods to taste amazing! All while staying healthy.

Spoiled myself today. Because I could. Because I wanted to. It felt good.
Beer: 150 cal
Salad: 420 (I only ate 2/3).
Not too bad, in terms of eating out. It was delicious. I felt free. For once. For the first time in a long time.

Flu Fighter Chicken Noodle Soup
For the chicken:
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast tenders
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
For the soup:
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 large carrots, peeled and diced
3 stalks celery, diced
1 very large onion, finely diced
8 cloves garlic, minced
Big pinch of salt
32 ounces of chicken stock (or chicken bone broth)
4 cups water
1 bay leaf
2 cups noodles of your choice (I suggest using a smaller noodle like elbows or egg noodles)
Juice of 1 lemon, plus more for serving
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup fresh dill, chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F). Place chicken tenders in a large baking dish lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of oil and sprinkle with spices. Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, flipping the chicken at the half way point. Once cooked, pull into small chunks using two forks.
While the chicken is roasting, prepare the soup.
Heat olive oil in a large, heavy bottomed soup pan over a medium flame. Add carrots, celery, and onion, and cook - stirring occasionally - for 8-9 minutes. Add garlic and salt and cook for another minute before adding the bay leaf, water and chicken stock. Increase heat to high, bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, stir in noodles, and simmer for 10 - 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft and the pasta al dente. Stir in cooked chicken, dill, and lemon juice. Taste soup to adjust seasonings, then serve at once.

~ Mini Apple Pies ~
Here is an easy pie recipe I love to make during autumn and winter time! It's very easy and quick and perfect to enjoy with some hot cocoa or tea or to gift to family and friends! It's a bit higher in calories, but they really fill you up. ♥
162 calories | 2g Protein | 7g Fats | 27g Carbs per serving (makes 6)
Time needed: 1 hour roughly
What you need
1 package puff pastry
3-4 tbsp cinnamon
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 packages vanilla sugar (optional)
2 tbsp butter
1 egg (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 180°C | 356°F. Wash apples well and cut them into cubes.
2. In a bowl, mix the apples with cinnamon and sugar. Make sure the apples are well covered.
3. Heat butter in a pot. Cook apples for about 5 minutes or until they are soft enough for you.
4. Take out the pastry and brush it over with the juice from the apples, then cut it into squares. With a spoon, fill one triangle of the square with the apples, then overlap it with the other triangle and use a fork to seal the ends and brush the top with the egg.
5. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Tip: You can also add Christmas seasoning or fill it with pumpkin instead of apples! If you don't have puffy pastry at hand, you can make your own!
Bon Appétit! ♥

Bread Roll is an Indian snack recipe that we all love to eat. In this video, I have shared my Potato Stuffed Bread Roll recipe with you. The bread is stuffed with spiced potato mixture. The most unique thing about this recipe is the extra crispness and crunchiness of the Bread Roll.

This is how I’m trying to survive and maintain my calorie intake despite everyone around me trying to sabotage me.
This is a 1L nalgene water bottle. I’m trying to finish 2 day. I have 2 glasses of water and coffee in the morning. With lunch I start drinking from this so I hope I finish this one by 3:30. And then fill and finish another one by 6 so I don’t get too hungry at dinner
Also. These gerber baby snacks are a saviour. They’re SUPER low cal. 16 pieces is 35 cal. This whole container is 210. And it’s actually kinda filling. When I work or study I get snacky and I don’t wanna eat chips or crackers. This is enough to satisfy and satiate. Especially with the water.
I’m gonna try this out and see if it works. It’s mainly about willpower. Ever since moving back it’s been really hard to be healthy cuz there’s a lot of snacks and junk in this house and my self control is abysmal. Will report back

I decided to host a small dinner party this weekend and wanted to impress my friends with my new cooking skills. What could I make that was easy enough to do for about 10-15 people, (not so small dinner party), but also intriguing enough where it looks and tastes like I put in a lot of time and effort??? My pesto chicken recipe it is! It can be a little filling, so I paired it with some light buttered egg noodles and garlic bread😋
Boneless Chicken Breasts 🍗
Sliced Tomato’s 🍅
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese 🧀
Pesto Sauce 💚
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Grease the bottom of a baking dish.
Lay chicken breasts in baking dish and sprinkle them with some salt and pepper. I never measure with this recipe, so just kinda wing it!
Bake chicken breasts for 30 minutes.
Take them out of the oven and spread on top a thin layer of pesto sauce.
Then lay on top 2 slices of tomatoes and top with some mozzarella cheese. Enough to your liking.
Put the chicken back in the oven for 5-10 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
Serve with some garlic bread and buttered egg noddles if you’d like and volià!

Let's talk smoothies!
I recently started drinking smoothies for breakfast, which is a great way not to skip breakfast (n subsequently overeat during lunch). But now I am in need of some healthy ingredient options. A bunch of fruit also contains a bunch of sugar, and mixing up fruit and vegetables also fucks with the fiber in them (I think?).
I currently make smoothies using: 2 handfuls of frozen mango, 3 cubes of frozen raw spinach, half a banana, some soy milk. Sometimes I add different things but the soy milk, banana and spinach are always the basis.
If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them! Oatmeal, kale, yoghurt?

MANGO KIWI LEMONADE POPSICLES
Author: Amanda Powell
Serves: 10 popsicles
1 ¼ cups lemonade
3 – 4 kiwis, peeled and sliced
1. Blend the mangoes in a blender or food processor until pureed. Add the lemonade and blend well. I used homemade lemonade (I always have some around during the warmer months). You can use store-bought, but it won’t have that fresh citrus zing to it that I personally love!
2. Fill your popsicle molds ⅔ of the way full. It will seem as though we are being skimpy with the liquid, but the kiwi takes up a lot of room.
3. Place the sliced kiwi into the molds. I fit two slices per mold. The liquid is thick enough that the kiwi slices will not sink to the bottom. Freeze for about 1 ½ hours before inserting popsicle sticks (this is so we don’t end up just pushing the kiwi down when we insert the sticks. Freeze until solid, about another 3 – 4 hours.

So I love breakfast. It’s my favorite meal of the day and, as such, I love to mix it up and try a bunch of things. Plus, most breakfast foods and cheap and easy to make. I’m sure you’ve heard of overnight oats and if you haven’t tried them, DO IT! They’re quick and easy and they’re already made when you roll out of bed in the morning. For the base of any Overnight Oats, you’ll need:
-½ Cup of ROLLED OATS
-¼ Cup of GREEK YOGURT
-½ Cup of MILK
-½ Tbsp of HONEY
-½ tsp of VANILLA
-Pinch of SALT
After that, have fun with it! You can add any fruit like blueberries, bananas, strawberries, etc to make “mock” fruit muffins. My personal favorite combo involves ½ BANANA, 1 TBSP PEANUT BUTTER, and a dash of CINNAMON. Chocolate chia is also amazing! It’s not too sweet but still super tasty! Swap the honey for MAPLE SYRUP, add 1 ½ TBSP of unsweet cocoa powder and 1TBSP of Chia Seeds.
