The 5 Greatest GERD Instagrams

Less acid still tastes yummy

The 5 Greatest GERD Instagrams

My doctor gave me new things –– in addition to the already long list –– to eliminate from my diet. Coffee, chocolate, peppermint, citrus, tomatoes, tomato-based products, carbonated beverages, and any high-acid or fried foods, are all off the table. People often ask me, "well, what do you eat?," after they hear all the things I must avoid. However, a GERD-friendly diet can still taste great with the right grocery list. These five Instagram pages contain tasty, yet acid reflux friendly dishes.

1. The Gerd Chef (@thegerdchef)

This is one of my favorite accounts. The photos are aesthetically pleasing and the chef provides assorted recipes for all meals. This page also caters to vegetarians with dishes like honey pecan crusted salmon and spaghetti squash noodles with roasted shrimp and dairy-free cauliflower pasta sauce . Plus, she posts inspirational photos with words like "breathe," has a list of acid reflux triggers, and suggests medicines she takes. Start with an easy recipe like these gluten-free waffles with carob sauce

2. Gerdelicious (@gerdelicious)

This page just started, but it features great appetizers and fried food alternatives. Try some chicken and mushroom wontons or low carb cauliflower biscuits. Check out the food guide, reflux info, and more recipes on the website. Note: not all these recipes are gluten-free.

3. Gerd Girl (@gerdgirl)

If gerdgirl's profile picture doesn't make you optimistic about a GERD-friendly diet, I don't know what will. This page's user lives in Dublin, Ireland and posts low-fat and gluten-free recipes. Some of the photos look restaurant-worthy and the recipes don't disappoint. Gerdgirl posts exquisite sweet and savory breakfast recipes. Cook up a sweet potato pancake with tofu and smoked salmon or a banana mug cake with Greek yogurt and prune.

4. Coco Katy (@beinggerd)

This page also recently started. Beinggerd beautifully arranges her plates and fills them with veggies. Its a great resource for bowl-style meals like this smoothie bowl or veggie bowl.

5. Dropping Acid Official (@droppingacid)

A GERD diet requires small, frequent meals. This page upholds that standard well. Assemble a turkey and rice bowl dairy-free overnight oats, or a protein-packed salad.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
