Scarcity

Sorry I haven't posted for a few days. I made a macaroni & cheese Thursday night that just didn't come out at all. The night before I was supposed to make Mexican Lasagna, but that had to be shelved because Josh can't eat anything spicy. He's had a really severe case of acid reflux since late Sunday night. He went to the clinic on Wednesday and they gave him a GI shake and told him to start on Prilosec in the morning. He had already tried Tums and Pepcid AC to no avail. And he's still not feeling much better. He'll be going back to the doc on Monday. I'm a bit concerned, but trying to just concentrate on helping him feel better. It's especially hard feeding him because anything he eats hurts. I've been looking up acceptable foods for an acid reflux or GERD diet, and only come up with a handful of ideas really. But, here's what next week's menu is looking like.

Scrambled Eggs (2 whites to 1 yolk) & Yogurt Banana Splits
Baked Potatoes topped with Broccoli & Feta
Trout with Brown Rice & Mixed Veggies
Rotisserie Chicken with Brown Rice and Green Beans

Anyone who stops by here have acid reflux issues? I do, but mine are usually due to medications instead of a sudden attack, so I'm not sure how to cook for him right now. Most of the stuff above seemed to be okay according to all the different websites I looked at. Any suggestions?

That sounds rough! I get it when I'm pregnant pretty bad, but it sounds like you're doing everything right. Eating really small meals and earlier in the day helped a ton as well. Dinner was always the hardest. I hope it clears up soon.

How did I miss this post? I'm so sorry! I am trying to think back to the end of my last pregnancy when my heart burn/acid reflux was at its worst....

Pretty much everything down to water and white bread did it to me.

I'm sorry! Hope things get better soon.
