food affecting smell of pee?

I know this isn't "vagina" related, but hopefully it's close enough.

Anyone know of any foods (besides the stereotypical asparagus) that will make your pee smell different? I know it's common with infection, but I've had my share of UTIs and definitely am not having any symptoms. So I'm wondering if it's something I ate...any suggestions?

When I eat more junk food, the smell is stronger.

When I drink more water, it's the opposite.

Honey smacks and wheat puffs make my pee smell like they do. Nothing like the wheat puff smell, let me tell you. It usually means i have a UTI on the way though :(

eating a lot of oranges (not orange juice, though) will really make my pee smell.

I know for a fact that alfalfa makes your pee smell quite funky. Kinda like horse poop, in fact...

(In case anyone was wondering, I took a multivitamin for a few years that had a large amount of alfalfa in the pills. The pills smelled like it, and the pee smelled like it. Nom nom, right?)

Garlic makes mine smell funny. And not drinking enough water makes it smell funny and look bright yellow.

A lot of meat makes my pee smell really foul. Too little water, and it smells too ammonia-y.

B vitamins can make your pee smell weird. Lots of garlic or onions or shallots can make it smell kinda...sulfery.

Drinking a large cup of coffee makes a weird scent for me. My urine smells sort of like coffee!

Coffee and soy products (esp. soy milk) can make my pee smell funny, but usually it's not a "bad" smell.
