I was fairly sure it was a medical thing. I can't imagine anyone making an "all vegan but no fruit" diet choice on their own. So for your husband, is it fruit in the botanical sense? So no peppers, no eggplant, no tomato, no squash, no pumpkin, no okra? Or does it mean that he just can't eat the things that people typically think of when they think of fruits, like apples and oranges and pears? Is there a sugar cutoff? Or a list? Sorry for all of the questions. I'm just curious.
