I had gastritis for a while. I ate nothing but white rice with only a little butter, and bananas or banana smoothies for a time, as well as the occasional goat milk and I can say that definitely helped to alleviate my gut issues. You usually want to increase the mucus in the stomach to protect the lining, so goat milk definitely helps with that. Don't eat anything too meaty or fibery, and I would stick to the simplest, softest foods to digest in order to let the natural healing process take place.
Seconding the above recommendations. Go for foods that would never require wheat in the first place. Paleo diet is one way (more meat and veggies) as well as alternative grains like rice or corn if you don't want to go strict paleo. I always love making my eggs and bacon with fresh butter in the morning. Steak and eggs are good dinner too, as well as whatever vegetable happens to be cheap down at the farmers' market.
Fried rice is a good quick and easy way to make something cheap and filling. 1 egg, 1-2 cups rice prepared ahead of time and stored in the fridge, then cooked at medium heat over a normal temperature with seasoning of your choice is just perfect! Rice noodles are great too.
Mexican food like corn tortillas and tortilla chips are perfect snack foods too. If you don't live in the American Southwest it could be hard to find some good corn tortillas.
