How about the drugs?: There is nothing you can add or subtract from diet to pass a drug test, except eliminating the drugs.

What are some tips on how to make sure that my diet is healthy and balanced, especially since I am a vegetarian?
Be discerning: If you're a vegetarian, you'll need to supplement to get enough of some of your nutrients such as B12 and iron. Even protein may be a challenge. Despite all the huckstering, the big studies show no difference between vegetarians and omnivores in longevity or any category of disease when you control for the other stuff. You can claim the moral high ground. Make the choice freely. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

YES: One of the advantages vegetarianism is that eating fruits and vegetables tends to make the body more alkaline. Being alkaline helps the liver detox as it requires base to neutralize acids, which it primarily does at night . This is why checking first morning urine ph is the most critical as it shows much reserve is left over (if any). However, one may need a complete protein and B12 supplement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Couple thoughts: There are a lot of great sites on paleo but Mark's Daily Apple has some wonderful articles and the recipes are really great as well. If you want a book recommendation I would recommend Gary Taubes "Why We Get Fat" first for a great foundation. Other great reads would be Grain Brain, Wheat Belly, Primal Blueprint, Deep Nutrition. Also watch Dr. Robert Lustig's Sugar: The Bitter Truth on youtube. ...Read more
