A bit overwhelmed!

I have been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 13 years now. I just found out today that I am allergic to almost everything I eat. A bunch of my favorite fruits and vegetables, flour, milk, eggs, tofu, soybeans, spices, gluten, wheat, nuts, beans and the list goes on and on.

The ONLY proteins I'm not allergic to that aren't meat seem to be duck eggs and blue cheese...neither of which I'm a fan of.

I don't know what on earth to do. I'm oooooopen to reintroducing meat products, but am not sure how to go about that.

I'm mostly frustrated because I just began feeling like, after years of struggling, I found a great balance and relationship with food.

Any suggestions?
