Food allergies: When you say you are allergic to all fruits and vegetables, what do you mean exactly? Have you have reactions to them? Have you blood or skin tests with reactions? Are you talking about IgG or IgE reactions? You probably need to work with a doctor with lots of experience with food allergies or multiple chemical sensitivities.

See below: chicken, meat, fish, dairy, nuts, legumes, seeds all have nutrition. They are additional sources including all grains as well. I never heard of someone allergic to ALL fruits and vegetables. Consider a second opinion on that. Best of health to you
