Don't know what to eat Allergic to all dairy,diabetes2,gastroparesis. The gastroparesis as a result of the diabetes is a beast of its own.

I'm allergic to all dairy. Due to the gastroparesis, diet is limited to seven things. The diabetes2 itself is a struggle. I'm just lost on what I can eat anymore. I can't have nuts,salad,any dairy product,processed foods,coffee,anything with any kind of grease at all. No sweets,I also have high cholesterol too. So what are my food options
