Hmmmmm.... I am not sure what I think of that site, but I did get a
that they say eggs are "highly acidic!" Also not sure what the notion of "de-acidifying" your body has to do with the simple chemistry of which foods react to cast iron.
My only point is that you did say that all food is acidic, some just more than others and "(b)ecause yes, all those foods (on your linked list) are acidic,"
when in fact they aren't. IMO it's important to keep the facts straight.
So I guess we should call it quits and agree that while most foods are acidic to some degree, not all are.
All this talk has made me decide to make my garlic chicken with white wine in my CI skillet for dinner tomorrow!
