Gluten, soy and dairy free items or meals

So, I have had to go gluten, soy and dairy free while nursing my little one. I've found I can have:

Veggies - no cabbage
Fruits- not from a can
Meat
Seafood
Beans
Eggs
Nuts
Rice Chex
Potatoes- W/ out butter
Lays Baked Chips
health food store bread mixes or cookie / brownie mixes
Mayonnaise
Coconut oil in place of butter

Does anyone else have this diet? What meals do you have? Is there anything else you eat that I haven't realized I can eat?

I can think of chili and some barley soups... and then different salads for dinners.

I'd appreciate any and all ideas.

grits, cornmeal, cornbread (make it yourself--use ricemilk or other sub for milk), plain corn tortillas (use masa and a tortilla press for the least additives), sweet potatoes, squash/pumpkins (and their seeds--yummy roasted!), white, brown and wild rices, millet, quinoa, amaranth, teff (similar grain).

you shouldn't use barley, it has gluten as it is a close relative to wheat--same with oats, kamut, rye and triticale.

some meal ideas:

chili with baked potatoes
stir fry with rice (use a wheat-free tamari such as San-J has) and your choice of meat
split pea soup
potato/veggies roasted with your choice of meat
corn tortilla-based enchiladas or tacos
hot cereal (such as quinoa) with eggs and fresh fruit
quinoa or brown rice pasta with your choice of veggies/meat in the sauce

Thanks for all that great info Christine! I have millet on hand, but I've never known what to do with it other than grind it and make baby cereal. Would you maybe try it in soup?

absolutely! it has a great texture for soups.

more thoughts:

chalupas with corn tortillas as the base
fajitas with corn tortillas
stuffed/baked bell peppers (meat/rice/sauce) or tomatoes
wild rice with portobello mushrooms as a side dish
sweet potato fries
lasagne using zucchini slabs instead of wheat noodles--stuff with blended cashews or navy beans, veggies, spinach, etc.

Re: Gluten, soy and dairy free items or meals

I really like the idea of the stuffed bell peppers. It's is a meal I can have that I make normally anyways but just didn't think of myself. Thanks again.
