Strawberry Banana and Peach Chia Seed Smoothie

IMG_6465

I raced home from work yesterday to try and capture my dinner. Yes. I had a smoothie for dinner. Oh and peanut butter and jelly…

It was blueberry jelly so that still makes me an awesome food blogger, right?

I’m literally afraid to eat anything lately so I opted for a smoothie and peanut butter and jelly. I’ve been having a crazy bad case of acid reflux and I am just afraid to eat. I don’t want to make it worse by putting something into my mouth that I shouldn’t. I’ve been avoiding all the foods they say to avoid and I’ve been sleeping on an incline. I’m finally feeling some relief but I am scared that at any moment it will come back after I chew.

I’ve read some extreme cases of people living off of rice for the rest of their lives and I obviously don’t want that to be me. I love to cook, create recipes and be in the kitchen. I most of all love to eat so how absolutely horrible would this be for me?

I drink orange juice every morning —  sometimes coffee instead. I love tomato sauces, peppermint and chocolate; especially peppermint and chocolate combined! Kissing these foods goodbye makes me so sad and angry.

Hoping for the best, acid reflux be damned.

    Well, I will still read your blog even if it’s all peanut butter & jelly and white rice recipes. But I hope it doesn’t come to that! I put chia seeds in juice all the time, but I still haven’t tried them in a smoothie. I need to try it!

    I just found this on Pinterest. Yummy! I purchased some chia seeds and I’m excited to use them. What a great website!

    For your reflux, this may seem weird but have you tried drinking baking soda during an attack? Putting about 1/4 tsp or so in a cup of water has helped my acid reflux in the past (it will make you burp, just a warning – ha!) Also, a Tbs of Apple Cider Vinegar in the morning mixed with honey and water. I like it hot 🙂 That will help balance your stomache’s pH. It seems weird to fight acid with acid but reflux can actually indicate to little acid. Hope that helps and you can eat all your yummy foods soon!

    Best, Hannah

      Thanks Hannah for your suggestions. I think I’ll try the apple cider vinegar one! 🙂 🙂

    It looks really yummy. Peaches are expensive right now so I’ll have to see if I can find any that aren’t too outrageous and I’ll give it a try. I already have some chia seeds in my cupboard. By the way peppermint can help with heartburn.
