Hi! I’m Paula. I love to cook, but eating well became difficult when I stopped taking daily medication for GERD. Managing heartburn naturally requires a different approach to healthy eating. The diet focuses on low-acid ingredients–something rarely mentioned in recipes–and is also low in fat.
In addition to missing my chocolate, citrus, beer, and tomatoes, I’ve been surprised at the lack of heartburn-friendly recipes online. On this site I adapt recipes from food blogs and books, share cooking tips, and chronicle my restaurant experiences (mostly in the Boston area). My goal is to create a collection of recipes that don’t taste like they belong in a special diet.
If you have suggestions, I’d love to hear them! Either leave a comment or find me on Twitter: @LowAcidKitchen.
