Lack of fruit

Answered on August 06, 2018
Created April 22, 2015 at 4:08 AM

I eat a bland, whole foods diet that consists of meats and cooked veggies, mostly in coup form. Right now I don't eat any dairy, nuts, grains, spices or oil other than sea salt, ACV, fermented soy sauce, sesame and olive oil on occasion.

Anyway, I rarely eat any fruit. In fact, I had my first serving of steamed apples in about a month. Out of curiousity, are there any adverse effects to the lack of fruit in my diet?

I eat ZERO fruit and am very healthy. I eat a lot of veggies though, and they have lots of vitamins/minerals/antioxidants. 

If you're truly worried, which you shouldn't be... Take a mutli!

Even with Krohn, you should give a chance to completely sprouted sprouts (no seeds left). Your diet is devoid of enzymes, and sprouts pack enough nutrition that you can eat small amounts of them. They also combat bio-film through enzymatic action.

Nuts are also rough on my stomach right now (yes, my body was that bad before). Some of the enzymes do stay in the water of soup, and I take whole food supplements which I have every intention of eliminating when I add to my diet. I am not too worried, but I really appreciate your advice!

What about lemon juice?

I do add lemon juice to my tea and water most mornings and when I go out to restaurants, I just wasn't sure if it was enough.

You could do without fruit as long as you get things like vitamin C elsewhere, such as from bell peppers, but why all cooked veggies (you say even your apples are steamed)?  Why not raw veggies as well?

 

You may also be missing out on the wonderful flavinoids in things like blueberries and blackberries.  You can get flavinoids from other stuff like cocoa powder, but of course they're not the same thing as each is different.

 

Also, soy, whether fermented or not, is not paleo, and is actually a harmful endocrine disruptor.  In very small amounts, it's probably not very harmful, but it also contains wheat usually, and that tends to cause issues.

My vitamin C levels have actually increased since I started this diet thank goodness! I have Crohn's Disease, and I can't tolerate raw foods. I get that I might miss some nutrients, that's why I cook them in mostly soup. I am hoping that once my inflammation level goes down, I can test to see if I can eat them raw, but right now I would rather cook them then not eat them at all. I can also boil some fruit (I haven't tried blue berries or black berries yet, but t's almost that season) and drink their juice, but I honestly prefer them steamed.

I buy organic gluten free soy sauce, so there is no wheat and it's not genetically modified. I don't consume it very often, and it doesn't affect me. I am hoping once I can enter in more food, I will try some alternatives.
