I can't believe I missed this thread! I came here just now to post something similar.

We avoid corn for the most part, but not completely ... yet. Its so frustrating to keep eliminating foods, especially with a child involved! Oh yes, and I got serious about no added oils in November 2008.
I used to frequent a gf forum, but it seems that most people over there believe you should eat a lot of meat and eggs and no grains.

A quick meal for me is a diced sweet potato, carrot, and some frozen broccoli cooked together and eaten over brown rice (we always keep a pot of cooked brown rice in the fridge.
