Is there life after Gluten?

Took a long working break from Iraq ... long enough to see a doctor who gave me a blood test and indicted that I have a wheat and gluten allergy and should cut these out for 6 months. Wouldn't be so bad except that I was also allergic to:

eggs, butter, cow's milk, goat's milk, nutritional yeast (horrors!), coconut, strawberries, walnuts, kiwi, eggplant, vanilla, apples, and a host of other things.

I'm on my way back to Iraq now and it looks like the only thing I can eat is rice, beans and meat ... chocolate is ok (alhumdulilah!) but without butter and vanilla, what is the use!?! You might as well just shoot me now!

Still, I'll have to give it a game try.
