Re: Montreal Homegrown

Badlips, be careful just taking a random list online for alkaline/acidic foods -- I've searched them tirelessly and found a substantial amount of variation, for example your list says chicken is acidic whereas others say chicken (skinless breasts) are alkaline, your list allows for beans like lentils and chickpeas, while others say they are acidic. Some dairy might be alkaline while others might be highly acidic. Vegetarians need protein in some form. This site is a little more detailed (I won't vouch for its accuracy) but as you'll note, some foods are high acid forming and some are low acid forming:

Note that chicken, wild duck, fish and venison are counted as very-low-acid forming. Maybe consult a nutritionist, but also invest in cheap pH testing strips -- you can test your urine and saliva and see your pH and if you really need a drastic alkaline diet (mine was a pH of 5.5 before my housemate accidentally threw the strips away).

And remember, some argue Candida yeast thrives in EITHER a highly alkaline or acidic environment, so a proper balance is your goal (I think the stomach is supposed to be more on the acidic and the intestines on the alkaline side). What you see time and time again is that 80% of your diet should be alkaline and 20% acid-forming if you are highly acidic. Otherwise if you are normal the ratio should be 60% to 40%. And you don't want to create any other deficiencies of course. Get yourself a bunch of almonds, millet and quinoa at the least -- those were my staples last year!
