Ginisang Repolyo with Tokwa

My LPR (Laryngopharyngeal Reflux) is having a relapse since last week. I figured it has something to do with my diet and the weight I gained. Since I stopped having symptoms kasi last year, I went back to my regular eating habits, so I gained some of the weight I lost too, 20lbs to be exact from the 40lbs.

So now, I figured that this is not good. Being a foodie and a food content creator with LPR is hard but I somehow have to make this work. So I’m going to start eating healthy again and have my portion control to make it easy on my digestion.

When my Silent Reflux is being very active, I choose to eat a plant-based diet.

When you eat foods with animal protein — such as meat, eggs, and cheese — the stomach makes pepsin to digest it. Most plant-based protein, in contrast, is digested in the small intestine. So, a mostly plant-based diet means there’s less pepsin in the stomach to reflux up into the throat and cause LPR symptoms. So that means this is a great meal too if you have any form of Acid Reflux.

Kaya naman, for today’s ulam: Ginisang Repolyo with Tokwa.

So ayan, you will be seeing more plant-based recipes here at The Peach Kitchen because I will have a Flexitarian Diet. This doesn’t mean plant-based na rin ang Adarne Fam. I’ll still cook regular food for them with meat but it’s good because they will be eating more veggie dishes


To cook this, I fried the tokwa in olive oil but if you have to avoid oil, you can use an air fryer or oven toaster to cook the tokwa instead.
