Whether you were just diagnosed with acid reflux or you’re a vet who’s gotten off track with diet, it can be hard to find foods that work for your body. In my practice as a health coach, I’ve observed great success when people with acid reflux avoid common food triggers. These include high-fat foods, caffeine, chocolate, onions, tomatoes, and more, according to the International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders.

The plan below will provide you with a week-long meal plan of reflux-friendly eating. These tasty ideas will help get you back on track in no time.
