Coeliac disease - gluten free diet?

I was wondering what main course could a person with coeliac disease eat?

The only foods that present a problem for a person with coeliac disease are those containing gluten. A gluten free diet still allows the person to enjoy a very wide range of foods including meat, chicken, fish, fruit, vegetables and dairy products. We have an interesting feature on this condition and you might find the paragraph entitled “the gluten-free diet” to be of particular interest to you. That feature can be accessed at: http://www.irishhealth.com/index.html?level=4&id=818. The Coeliac Society of Ireland is a very useful source of information and can be contacted at: http://www.coeliac.ie/. The UK society is another useful resource and they can be accessed at: www.coeliac.co.uk. Both societies offer a wide range of useful and practical information on the gluten-free diet.
