Kung Pao Chicken | GERD / Acid Reflux Friendly Version
I like spicy food but not too spicy. This is literally the one pepper version and is pretty mild so it�s easy to make this spicier by adding peppers to your desired level of heat.

One way to control how much spiciness is in dishes like this one is to use chili oil. This is widely available now, and very common in Asian markets, but your grocery probably carries it.

Simply replace some of the oil that you use to stir fry with the chili oil. Start slowly at first -- a half teaspoon for two servings may be enough for you (it is for me). Each time you cook use a little more if you want more heat. It�s great to have around and adds the flavor of a spicy chili pepper but you don�t have to take the time to seed and mince.

Both versions are safe for Coumadin® users, lactose-free, and low in sodium (salt).

Maple Glazed Salmon with Lentils
This recipe has it all. It's simple and quick and has great savory flavor that's complemented by the sweetness of the seared fish. The lentils are full of flavor and have a ton of fiber. This recipe is safe for Coumadin® (warfarin) users, lactose-free, GERD / Acid Reflux-Friendly, and appropriate for those on a low-sodium (salt) diet.
