What makes Mexican Egg Scramble a delicious yet healthy breakfast choice?
The fats in bacon are about 50% monounsaturated and a large part of those is oleic acid – the same fatty acid that olive oil is praised for and generally considered “heart-healthy”. As long as you can get your hands on the least-processed bacon and eat it moderately, it should not adversely affect your GERD symptoms. If you can, buy bacon from local farmers that used traditional processing methods. The best bacon is from pasture-raised pigs that ate a diet that is appropriate for pigs, not a high-grain diet only.
Eggs don’t usually trigger acid reflux for most GERD sufferers. High in protein and one of the best ‘complete foods’ out there, eggs can be cooked in versatile ways.
Mushrooms have a pH between 6.00 and 6.70 and are considered safe for GERD patients.
