So I have oral allergy syndrome for fresh fruits and veggies and possibly some nuts (cashews, almonds, but okay w/ peanuts!). I can't eat raw veggies b/c of my gut, so that's not really a problem. If I want to eat fresh fruit, I just take a Zyrtec and I'm okay (except for bananas and cherries).
I saw a "lifestyle"/nutrition MD who wants me to go on a plants-based diet (basically vegan). She said that if I have a mild (not life-threatening) reactions to something, I can still eat it. And that after I cut out dairy and animal products, the reactions might go away. I pretty much said that I don't mind eating these things if taking Zyrtec daily but am certainly not going to without it.
