This will give you gut time to begin healing while being kind to it & not overloading it. Also, during that time you can read here & learn about all the pitfalls you need to avoid. Like cross contamination (cc) issues etc....

Here is an article on basics of the diet.
In the gluten-free shopping section of the article it has links to safe and unsafe ingredients. Feel free to ask more specific questions if something is confusing.
If you want an easy shopping list, all fresh fruit and veggies are safe, eggs, rice, potatoes, plain canned or dried beans, plain meat or fish you cook yourself, and grab a loaf of gluten-free bread if you can find it to have with eggs for breakfast. Udi's or Rudi's brands are really good. That will get you started. Season your food with onions, garlic, or plain spices like oregano or basil. No seasoning mixes as some have gluten. I'd suggest you skip dairy for now if you have a lot of tummy trouble - it's gluten-free but most newly diagnosed celiacs find it really hard to digest. Skip processed foods, pre-seasoned meats, canned foods, or things in packages that don't specifically say gluten-free until you are more used to the diet and ready to take on the fine art of label-reading.

Veggies in any combination you like is fine, frozen, fresh, or canned. The problem with frozen or canned is that sometimes they have sauces or seasonings with gluten. Make sure you are getting just plain vegetables.
Squirmingitch, Can I eat non frozen gluten free things mixed together such as peppers and corn?
