I also love spending time with family and loved ones, writing, and teaching. But, when I'm not playing the role of the food snob, I also enjoy sports, weight training, archery and generally working with my hands on projects around the house.

Consuming too much fatty foods, like french fries, can cause GERD flare ups.
Today I would like to share a few facts with you about a condition called gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD for short. GERD occurs when the contents of your stomach pass through your lower esophageal sphincter and back into your esophagus. This causes a painful burning sensation that feels like it’s situated behind your breastbone as it moves up...
