Many people with acid reflux find that loosing some weight helps ease their symptoms. It can be a daunting task, especially around the holidays. One of the most important meals to consider is breakfast. If you get a good breakfast in you first thing in the morning it can help strengthen your resolve for the rest of the day.
This yummy breakfast casserole is reflux friendly, high protein and low calorie. If you find that onion bothers your reflux you can remove it from this recipe. This can be made ahead of time and frozen in single serving sizes. It is also great on a whole wheat english muffin.
Hope you enjoy!
