    Eat your veggies, raw AND cooked - and some fruits too! If you are eating lots of meats and other stuff that produces acids in the body, then you'll need more veggies to balance it...
    Being just an old fashioned guy myself; I’m beyond tired of all these fragile mama boys (and girls!) with powder in their gluteus and soft pillows under their arm pits that cannot recover from their 3 days a week abbreviated “strength” routine…

    Maybe queen of fruit...not sure about veggies. I only eat them occasionally for flavor/crunch (tomato sauce, basil, garlic, other herbs/spices, raw carrot a day for peat purposes, cucumbers b/c they are tasty)

    Are you referring to the pH diet? I never know if that's truth or just...bs. I'm on the fence. Do you have meritorious studies on it?

    I always thought this was kind of mainstream knowledge and that it is backed up by rock hard science, but to be honest I have never checked the studies though! This was around already in the early eighties, that food like meat and corn make your body acidic, but vegetables helps to balance the PH, so I have always kept that on my mind! Maybe somebody should look it up…

    Yep - there are even all kinds of theories out there about 'layering' your food intake based on the possible alkaline/acid balances created and which benefits one can derive from these combinations.

    I've never looked too deeply into it - I just know .........VEGGIE GOOD! EAT 'EM UP!

    The Globe and Mail is British, once removed. Never, ever, ever take culinary advice from the British. Especially regarding cooked vegetables

    I found an article about the acid/alcaline diet, but as I mentioned above its an old theory that has been around at least for thirty years or more; How too much cheese and meat can make your body dangerously acidic | Mail Online

    Hahahha thanks for the warning!

    I pretty sure variety is the way to go. No scientific backing, but some vegetables just taste aweful raw. Or are so fibrous you can't get to the nutrients anyway. There's definitely a point of overcooked though.

    I have always been fairly suspicious of the PH diet. Even when I was vegan I though it sounded quacky. Maybe similar the the GI diet; true on paper but not the complete story.
