Taking on acidity

It is now official. I have declared a war on my acidity and since I HATE the taste of antacids, and the idea of being dependent on them, I will be waging my battles with food (or sadly, lack of it).
This is what I cannot eat:
* Onions
* Garlic
* Tomatoes
* All citrus elements (goodbye to the fresh lime soda I always ordered in restaurants)
* Mint flavourings
* Fried foods
* Spicy foods
* Chocolate
* Drinks with caffeine and alcohol
Of these, the only ones I honestly don't care about are chocolate and caffeine and alcohol... So there. The battle lines are drawn.

  1. So we're on the same side of the battle lines... try small, frequent meals that will keep the acid factory busy. Drink plenty --- as in PLENTY --- of water to literally dilute the acid. Think of spony food that will soak up the acid... bread and murmura (puffed rice) work for me!
