How to Take Charge of Alkaline and Acidic foods in Your Diet.

Recently when I visited a health professional, I was advised not to take juice. I must have had this confused look on my face, so the health professional said, skip juice for a few days as it is acidic. That got me thinking; do most people think of juice as acidic because they think it is fruits blended together? Or at the mention of juice they picture only orange juice and immediately think that orange is acidic? 
So I thought that I would list alkaline and acidic forming foods for you so that at one glance you know what is in your diet.
