Double trouble

I can't eat white potatoes because they aggravate my gout, giving me severe pain in the big toe, and I can't eat bread, noodles, pasta, or pizza because I'm gluten-intolerant.  Well, just about every restaurant serves bread and white potatoes, but I'm learning the hard way that far fewer restaurants serve rice.  Looks like there'll be many occasions when rice pudding will be the only "starch" on a restaurant menu that I can eat. Fortunately, my lactose intolerance isn't too severe--I can still handle moderate amounts of  (preferably low-fat) dairy.  Just forget about butter, cream cheese, sour cream, and whipped cream.

The good news is that I can still eat one scoop of ice cream (but not two).  I'm counting my blessings.
