I have little yellow-green bits coming up out of the back of my throat. Is this food that is lodged in my esophagus?

It sounds like an ENT or gastroenterology issue. Gastric reflux can be very damaging to the esophagus, as well as the teeth. Oral rinses may help, but it sounds like a medical problem. Start with your internist.
