I believe it but your diet does not have to be all alkalising foods to be healthy. You are allowed to have some acid ones.
I agree, however acid-forming foods like animal protein and addictive acid-forming foods like SAD breads, pastas, cakes, etc. are best avoided.
The raw vegan diet is great because it is heavy in alkaline-forming foods: virtually all fresh fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens. Most grains and nuts are acid-forming, but like you said, you can eat some acid foods and be healthy as long as most of what you eat is alkaline-forming. Also note that almonds, quinoa, and millet are considered alkaline-forming foods.

I'd rather eat vegan and look like a tree than eat cow and look like a pig.
