Best foods for heartburn?

So embarrassing. Overdid the bad eating, and am experiencing slight heartburn for the first time in my life.

I know to stay away from acidic foods: coffee (time to try that cold-brewed?), alcohol, tomatoes, garlic, onion, citrus, large amounts of herbs, etc.

So what DO I eat? I'm just trying to be really good for a few days. My ideas are dairy and steel cut oats, noodles (sans tomato sauce), soups, meats. Am I on the right track? What about tea? Is there something people have eaten that actually makes them feel better?

WebMD wasn't too helpful on this subject. Nor was a standard Google search. They all seem to focus on what not to eat. TIA!
