Salad

Salads are loaded with green goodness and are a great source of roughage. You’d be hard-pressed to meet someone who got heartburn after eating a salad; just make sure that it’s not loaded up with cheese and oily dressing.

Pretzels

Pretzels and other dry foods like crackers and plain toast are also great for those suffering from heartburn. The digestive process stirs up a lot of stomach acid, and these foods can actually help reduce it by soaking it up.
