I never really was a "fruit person" and I remember growing up we had a very small "fruit bowl" my mom had on the counter and it probably had 4 fruits a week. Usually bananas, and those sat there until someone ate them, usually getting lots of spots. We ate a lot of frozen and canned veggies.
I cannot think of one fruit I really like, or tolerate. Most of my meals are potatoes or rice with lightly steamed veggies. I eat a ton of different ones. I did start putting my meals into fitday.com (which I have used in the past). I might try the Cronometer that many mention here, to see how my nutrients look. I also started a new job where there is a free lunch every day, which a huge nice raw salad bar with a ton of veggies I can eat, like tomatoes, spring greens, mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, beets, cucumber, etc.
I can look into getting checked for nutrients, but I have a high deductible health insurance, and only go to the doctor unless it's an emergency, or my yearly exam (which is covered outside my deductible).
I could try cooked fruit, like Dr. McDougall has on his elimination diet. But I would think that would negate any nutrients?
Thanks again, Elizabeth
