anyone out there got any ideas re gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and Low FODMAP diets?

Went to allergist yesterday and looks like I have a combination of things going on, none of which are as bad (probably) as full blown coeliac disease but all of which combined seem to be exacerbating each other ... anyway, the upshot of which that I am now instantaneously on the above diet ... which will take a little bit of working through, not least of which will be reorganising the pantry this evening to reflect 'his' and 'hers' ... that might sound a little anal but I don't think I'd have a problem working on items for both of us, as long as I can clearly see the differences ...

FODMAP's are short chain carbs that are poorly absorbed and therefore are fermented by intestinal bacteria ....

I'm on the above until at least 4 October, when I see the specialist again ... oh joy, am on holidays in Noosa in the middle of this! Ah well ... :)
