I love oats. I love steel cut oats. I love plain oatmeal with a little splenda. I love oatmeal with apples, or bananas, or nuts and dried fruit… Any way you present it, I love it.
So whats my problem?
Oh…. just that almost every-single-time I have oatmeal I get wicked painful heartburn.
“Oatmeal?” you say? Well, even if you don’t… yes, oatmeal. The worst freaking heartburn known to man. I’ve tried a billion different ways of preparing it and adding and subtracting ingredients. I’ve tried all the different cuts.
So tell me, someone. What the heck? It’s the only food on the planet that gives me heartburn, and I’m not willing to give up on it. I’m vegan and I gotta have my hot breakfast food!
So is it acidic? If so, does anyone have any experience with balancing alkaline foods?
Please tell me someone else has this problem!
