Unless the fruit is organic or peeled, has she considered the cumulative effect of pesticide residues? Statements such as "occasionally I get cravings: I had a few baked potatoes but my body felt so strange after eating them I haven't wanted them since" and "my body is extremely sensitive and I find I no longer need those things in my diet" to me indicate an eating disorder.
I am concerned for her children who "have freedom of choice about what they eat ... if they fancy cooked food I'll prepare them a vegan meal, absolutely no meat". The example (pasta, no sauce and salad) was severely deficient, diet-wise.
No one doubts the benefits of fruit, but only as part of a balanced diet.
