Re: what foods counteract acidic foods

alkaline forming foods----most vegetables, many fruits (except canned, dried or anything too ripe), many herbs/spices (except cocoa, vanilla, nutmeg, mayo, ketchup), green/herbal tea, whole oats, quinoa, qild rice, millet, spelt, almonds, wheat grass, olive oil, brazil nuts, flaxseeds, sunflower seesds and oil, sesame seeds and oil, goat cheese/milk, blackstrap molasses, apple cider vinegar, unpasteurized honey.

The chart I have suggests that you keep your ratio to 75% alkaline forming foods and 25% acid forming foods at each meal. So eat your meat, corn, beans, peanutbutter, white rice, pecans, chicken, milk, etc, but then have at least 3/4 of the other foods at that meal that are alkaline forming.
