Sorry to hear you or someone you cook for has Gerd! Don't know of any cookbooks but remember to avoid foods that are too hot or too cold and eliminate or reduce "trigger" foods! For most people, that would be acidic foods and beverages (vinegar, wine, alcohol), tomato based sauces, fatty foods, caffeine (that includes Coke, Mountain Dew, energy drinks), and of course chocolate! Hope this helps!

Rule 2: don't over eat
Rule 3: eat at regular times each day

Sometimes (actually, often) it's not just food. Eat/chew slower. Don't wear pants too tight at the waist. Don't lie down right after eating. Avoid stress best you can. Don't smoke after eating if you smoke. Get checked for a hiatal hernia.

You need to eat a LOT of vegetables, heavy on the greens...Sling a lot of them in a soup pot and live off that for a few days to really settle things down.

More brown rice. Add some to that soup pot. Very soothing to the gut.

Lay off the acid-producing foods of course -- meat, dairy and sugar. Use them as condiments, never the center of the meal, if you use them at all.

Lots of water, lots of peppermint tea will help soothe your fevered insides.

You said you are tried of eating the same things over and over -- what is on your current list of allowed foods?

VEGETABLE SOUP OF THE GODS

1/2 head small green cabbage or 1/2 bunch of kale, stems removed, chopped
1 can of corn, liquid and all
1 can soup beans of your choice, liquid and all
1 small-to-medium potato, scrubbed and chopped but not peeled
2 ribs celery, scrubbed and sliced into horseshoes or chopped
2 med or 1 large carrot, peeled and sliced
2 small parsnips (not a big woody one), peeled and sliced
1/2 cup pearled barley or rolled oats or cooked rice
3 Tbsps instant minced onion
5 shakes coarse black pepper
5 shakes Italian seasoning blend
vegetable or chicken broth to cover other ingredients (go ahead and use ready-made)

OPTIONAL: 1 8-ozcan tomato sauce
3 tsps. chicken bouillon
1 handful of chopped ham or bacon bits

Throw this into the slow cooker and cook 4 hours on high or 8 on low, adding the ham 1 hour from the end of cooking if you are using it.

On the stovetop, bring all the ingredients to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cook 20 minutes or so, until the vegetables are tender.
