What makes Chickpea and Quinoa Salad a good meal for GERD sufferers?

  • A serving of chickpeas has about 17 grams of dietary fiber and 19 grams of protein. They are also considered more digestible than most other beans making them a better choice for people who suffer from GERD symptoms after consuming beans.
  • Quinoa is easy to digest, very low in cholesterol and sodium but is a good source of Magnesium, Manganese and Phosphorus.
  • Added herbs and crumbled Feta make this a satiating meal that is far from the bland, tasteless GERD meals you hate to pack for lunch.
