Apple & Spinach Salad for Gerd, Gastroparesis and Gastritis (Vegan + Dairy Free + Gluten Free)

by | Jul 25, 2019 | Enchanted Living, GERD & Gastroparesis, Recipes | 0 comments

This Apple and Spinach Salad is so perfect for this summer heatwave we are having across Northern Europe. This is the first of a few salad recipes I want to share this season but there’s something extra special about this recipe.

Apple and spinach sounds an odd combination but trust me it just works. The wholesome spinach and leafy greens add a nutrient drenched base, the apples add the perfect sweetness that blends like a dream with the vinaigrette, and the crunchy walnuts, add the perfect finishing touch, if desired. 

But most importantly for me, it’s a salad that is free of onions and garlic (and other problem ingredients) that is safe for those that suffer from IBS, GERD/GORDAcid RefluxGastroparesis and/or Heartburn. It’s also vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free.

As a result of being diagnosed with Scleroderma last year, I developed very severe acid reflux that is essentially the burning sensation in your chest or oesophagus, that is the most common symptom of acid reflux and gastroesophageal reflux after eating certain foods.

Some people like myself might also experience vomiting or regurgitation from your trigger foods. So every single one of my recipes is designed with all these things in mind. To learn more about this condition you can find more information here

It’s in salads that I often find many triggering ingredients and so this simple salad strips everything back without missing out on a real balance of nutrition, flavour and texture. 

This is something I just adore on sunny days like we are having. However, as with anyone who suffers from GERD, this condition can be very individual, so double-check the ingredients for any triggers you know your body has. For example, I can’t always handle nuts but lately, I’ve been better so I’ve added the walnuts but you can also skip them or add something else.
