I have celiac and now my GI specialists after tests tells me I am allergic to all seafood. This is terrible for me because it was the only meat I would eat. I can't stand the taste of other meat. This week in desperation I started a raw food diet. I am so sick, my stomach has bloated so bad I look 9 months pregnant and I am in severe pain. I have been so sick I resigned from my job in Thailand and I move back to Australia in two months after I finish up in my job here.
I guess I want to know what should I eat for the next two months until I go home.

How were you eating seafood as your main protein source before your doc said you are allergic? You wouldve experienced an allergic reaction like swelling, chest tightness or anaphylaxis. I call total bull on whatever test your doctor did. Only 1-3 percent of the world population has food allergies and you would know pretty soon after you eat the offending food.

I've been allergic to all seafood for some time when I was diagnosed with a severe gluten allergy last year. I eat mostly beef and lamb, lots of veggies, bone broth in the winter, fruits in season. I guess if I were you (in Thailand) I'd eat a little rice, lots of veggies and whatever meat I could stomach (maybe chicken?). It's my understanding that people with gluten allergies or celiac disease will often develop other food/digestive issues because the intestinal lining has sustained damage, possibly causing leaky gut.
Once you get back to Australia, lamb won't be difficult to find. You can make lamb soup, if you dont care for steaks and roasts. Or, maybe your seafood allergy will go away. Sometimes this happens. I currently live in a very dry environment, completely opposite to where I'm from. I have to be very strict in avoiding gluten and seafood or else i break out in hives and rashes. When I go home, though, I don't have to be as strict. My skin rarely ever breaks out.
