When I was younger I laughed when anyone said they had heartburn. It seemed like a ridiculous concept and just couldn’t wrap my head around it. Fast forward to my mid twenties and I finally understood what the big deal was.

Heartburn is the worst!

I got to the point where I couldn’t even look at spicy food without that familiar burning sensation coming over me. There have been a few times I seriously thought I was going to die because it hurt so bad. Between the heartburn and acid reflux I have had to drastically change what I eat. This means giving up on food I love, like anything spicy.

When my gallbladder came out I assumed that was the end of my heartburn and had to test the theory. The first time I ate spicy food things were fine for the first hour afterwards. Then it hit me. The sour taste in the back of my throat and the burning sensation in my chest. My problems weren’t over and I was so sick of feasting on antacids. It was time for a change and I knew there had to be a simpler solution.

There is a simple solution for all day heartburn relief!


The solution I found that is working to stop my frequent heartburn is Nexium 24HR. It is one Purple Pill a day and I am back to enjoying the food I love without suffering. There is no more handfuls of antacids or sulking doe-eyed watching others enjoy things I can’t. It’s kind of like I’m that young kid again wondering why everyone isn’t living simpler with that amazing Purple Pill in their life.

In celebration of my new-found freedom from heartburn I decided to make one of my favorite simple meals. Sausage and Peppers is one of those dishes I used to hate to love. I missed it so much and being able to finally enjoy it again was amazing.  I’m sharing my simple Sausage and Peppers recipe with you now and if you have frequent heartburn be sure to head to Walgreen’s to pick up some Nexium24HR!

Now that you’ve heard about my struggle with heartburn tell me about yours. What foods are you ready to get back to enjoying with the help of Nexium24HR?

Homemade Shake & Bake

I might be showing my age here but those Shake and Bake commercials from my childhood were just the cutest thing. “It’s Shake and Bake, (in a deep country accent) and I helped” was simply adorable! I’m sure that has something to do with why I love Shake and Bake today, I just don’t love the price or not having control over the ingredients. That’s why I started making my own and I love that I can customize each batch so there’s never a dull meal.

Shake & Bake

It couldn’t be easier to mix up your own homemade shake and bake mix at home for a fraction of the price you’ll pay in a store. Here is my basic recipe and a few alterations you can try. Feel free to play around with the ingredients and measurements to suit your tastes.

You might be tempted to omit the vegetable oil from the recipe, but don’t. Believe it or not it’s actually pretty important to helping the mixture stick to meats (or veggies) and maybe even enhances the flavor. I just know I’ve tried it without the oil and it’s nowhere near as good.

I received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review.


When I add spice to my homemade shake and bake the taste is amazing, but the sour stomach and heartburn aren’t. That’s why I stuck with Nexium 24HR long after the 30 day challenge ended. It does such an amazing job preventing heartburn and I will never look back. It’s a very freeing feeling to be able to eat what I want and not stress about the after effect. One purple pill a day and I’m heartburn free; who doesn’t love that?!

I highly recommend taking the Nexium 24HR challenge so you can enjoy the foods you love without the heartburn.
