After we were able to evaluate the whole benefit of the diet with a hernia of the esophagus and figured out the features of dietary nutrition before and after the operation in connection with this pathology, we can say that it's time to try to make a dietary menu for at least a week. After all, the treatment of the disease can be quite long, and all this time will have to follow a diet recommended for diseases of the digestive tract.

We have clarified which products are allowed and forbidden when digestive organs are moved to the chest and reflux disease, and therefore, based on this knowledge and understanding of acceptable methods of heat treatment of foods, it is easy to compile a weekly diet calculated for six meals a day.

Variants of the diet menu with a hernia of the esophagus are many, because the choice of foods for him can be considered quite sufficient. But it must be taken into account that vegetable salad, casseroles, puddings are dishes that are more suitable for the recovery period, while soup, mashed potatoes and liquid dishes are quite acceptable in case of exacerbation of the hernia of the esophagus.

On the Internet, you can find a lot of low-calorie recipes from healthy foods that are great for dietary nutrition. But the disease will be tolerated a little easier if it is perceived as a push for a flight of fantasy, because from the same set of products you can come up with several completely different dishes, the taste of which will depend on the way of preparation and flavoring (fruit, greens, dried herbs).

For example, a popular dietary dish "baked apple" can be diversified by adding honey, cottage cheese, slices of dried apricots to the carved cavity. And cooking options so beloved by the British oatmeal and even more. It is tasty and on milk, and on water with honey and various fruit and berry fillers. Oat flakes you can add cheese cakes and casseroles, bake them a tasty and useful oatmeal cookie, pre-resin in flour, so that after baking does not form solid lumps.

Preparing vegetable salads, you can season them with a small amount of Himalayan pink salt, which will give the dishes a certain piquancy. As a dressing, you can use quality refined vegetable oils and low-fat yogurt. Such a combination does not spoil the taste of the dish, but instead introduces into it a tender dairy note. And in combination with egg yolk, butter and yogurt make quite worthy competition with mayonnaise and can replace it in salads from boiled vegetables. In the period of remission, you can add dressing and salads from fresh vegetables.

Fruit salads can be filled with yoghurt and honey. Cottage cheese also fits well with these products and becomes not so dry and fresh, and by adding fruit and berries to it you can get a real restaurant dessert.

The lack of salt and sugar in dietary dishes can be compensated with honey, natural spicy seasonings, the addition of fragrant herbs and a beautiful dish design. It is proved that a beautifully decorated dish seems more appetizing and tasty than a heap of vegetables superimposed by a disorderly slide or mixed with jam or fruit cottage cheese. But it is only on a plate with cottage cheese, using the same fruits and jam to draw a smiling face, and life will seem much more interesting and brighter, despite the illness and the need to follow a diet.

Recipes of dishes with hernia of the esophagus

Well, everyone can fantasize about decorating dishes independently, but with recipes is more difficult. Not everyone can be a great culinary expert and know which foods are combined in one dish, and which ones are best used in different dishes. Here are a few useful and delicious recipes for the first, second courses and desserts, which can be included in the diet of a diet with a hernia of the esophagus.

Vegetable cream soup


Pumpkin - a piece, weighing 500-600 grams

Potatoes - 2 pcs. (large)

Water - 1 glass

Milk, diluted in water in equal proportions - 2 cups

Favorite seasonings and parsley

Pumpkin and potatoes peeled, cut into small pieces, pour water and stew with the lid closed until the vegetables become soft. The contents of the pan are poured into the blender (or grinded through a sieve) and turned into mashed potatoes.

Divorced milk boiled milk, add our puree to it, bring it to a boil and reduce the heat. We add in the soup-puree a little salt and seasoning and boil for about 10 minutes.

Before use, sprinkle the dish with finely chopped parsley or dill.

On the basis of this recipe, you can make other soups-mashed potatoes, for example, picking carrots or zucchini instead of pumpkins. If you add a little sugar instead of salt, you will get a sweet dish, which is good for breakfast or lunch. If the soup is puree based on pumpkin alone, it is very tasty to sweeten it with honey.

Meat pudding with a manga

We will not specify the number of ingredients in this tasty dish, which, despite its satiety, is fairly easily digested in the digestive tract. Let's give the opportunity for readers to experiment with the proportions and choose those that will make the pudding the most gentle and attractive.

Cooking dietary meat pudding is easy. Its basis is beef, which must first be scrolled a couple of times in the meat grinder. Next, cook a sparse semolina porridge on water or diluted milk, adding a little salt and carefully making sure that no rough lumps form.

After the semolina porridge has cooled, add the prepared meat to it and mix it well. Now take the raw chicken egg, separate the yolk from the protein, and mix the protein with a mixer or whisk into a strong foam. Yolk pour into manno-meat mass, mix, a little more salt and only after that accurately introduce whipped proteins. It is impossible to stir the products actively now, this should be done slowly, as carefully as possible, otherwise the pudding will not have the necessary porous structure.

Spread the mass in a greased form of vegetable oil, gently level the top of the casserole and put in a preheated to 200 degrees oven for about 20 minutes. Ready pudding can be poured with meat broth or served with a dairy sauce.

On the same recipe, you can cook vegetable pudding, taking instead of meat your favorite vegetables. If the pudding is prepared from carrots, shredded in a blender or grated on a fine grater, it can be made sweet.

Combined vegetable salad


Peking cabbage - 50 g

Potatoes - 2 pcs.

Egg of chicken - 1 pc.

Cucumber - ¼ pcs.

Vegetable oil (lean, olive) - 1 tsp.

Yoghurt - 2 tbsp.

Pine cabbage finely shred, lightly sprinkle with salt and mash with hands until the juice is isolated. Potatoes and eggs cook, cool and cut into small pieces (you can grate on a large grater). Cucumber three on a grater or cut into small cubes (you can thin plates).

Instead of eggs in the salad you can add small pieces of brine cheese, which are perfectly combined with Peking cabbage.

All the ingredients are mixed, add vegetable oil and yogurt, sprinkle with Himalayan (sea, iodized or ordinary table salt), decorate your favorite greens.

Dietary Vinaigrette

In this recipe, we also will not indicate the proportions, because a salad of such a plan is familiar to almost everyone and everyone prepares it in their own way, taking the products in the combinations and quantities that they find most appetizing.

In the classic vinaigrette, boiled potatoes, carrots and beets, diced, are necessarily present. We will remove the onion from the recipe, and replace the salted cucumbers with a fresh or sour apple. Lovers of protein dishes can add to the salad finely chopped chicken or hard-boiled egg. Combining different products, you can get several different dishes for every day.

Finished salad dressing with your favorite vegetable oil, if you want, add a little ground paprika or coriander, sprinkle with chopped parsley or dill.

Delicate curd casserole with fruit


Low-fat cottage cheese rubbed through a sieve - 250 g

Fresh chicken eggs - 2 pcs.

Sour cream - 1 tbsp.

Sugar - 2-3 tablespoons.

Starch - 1 tbsp.

All the ingredients except the egg whites, which must be previously separated from the yolks, are mixed and beaten with a fork until the sugar dissolves. To obtain vanilla flavor, you can replace some sugar with vanilla or add a little vanillin.

Proteins should be beaten into a thick foam and gently mixed with the curd mass. If desired, you can also bring in pieces of fresh apples or dried apricots.

We put our workpiece in a greased form, level it and send it for half an hour to the oven, which was previously heated to 190-200 degrees.

The casserole turns out to be very delicate and not dry, so it goes very well even without various additives in the form of sauces and drinks.
