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.
