Need help partners eating restrictions

Hi, hope this is in the right place? I'm looking for some new recipes to make that my partner can enjoy, any ideas would be greatly appreciated! She doesn't eat meat except seafood, cannot eat dairy (occasional small amounts ok). Cannot eat starchy things like bread/pasta/rice or potatos. Getting tired of eating the same thing all the time , please any help would be great.

I try not to eat too much meat and dairy so end up eating lots of pulses, sometimes make them into a salad and sometimes a stew.

Pumpernickel is a good alternative to bread, I find the taste is too strong so buy a light rye version and toast it to take the edge off.
I make lots of dips and spreads at home.

To be honest I don't get bored of eating like this because for me it's a choice and not something I'm forced to do. I love thai food so use a lot of thai recipes and adapt them.

Could you tell us why your partner has to restrict her diet? It would help us give you suitable substitutes.

Sounds like you could use some great seafood/fish recipes and vegetarian recipes, minus any dairy and starchy foods, yes?
Can she eat beans or eggs?

Thanks guys, to be more specific she cannot eat several things due to ibs and she is a vegetarian by choice. Yes mostly looking for seafood / vege dishes . Also finding it difficult to come up with sides or alternatives to rice or pasta, have tried quinoa but wasn't too keen on it.

Bouillabaisse, but it's a shame not to be able to accompany it with some crusty bread.

You can make kasha aka buckwheat groats as a side dish. It's delicious mixed with sauteed garlic and onions. Toast it first in a dry pan, then add it to boiling liquid, either broth or water - I prefer broth - it adds more taste. Cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed.

Beans are ok and unfortunately she doesn't really like eggs much but it's ok if they are in things ( patties etc)

What type of fish are you interested in? I have some great recipes for salmon, rainbow trout, shrimp, red snapper, and mussels.

I also have a few vegetarian recipes without starches or dairy, such as Vegetable Chili, Chickpea Stew, and Vegetarian Tortilla Soup. The Tortilla Soup uses corn tortillas - Can she have corn?

Also, check out my previous post about kasha as a side dish.
