detox diet help!

i'm doing a 2-week detox and i'm not to eat any soy, wheat, non-organic corn, oranges, nightshade veggies (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers), sugar, artificial flavours/colours/additives, caffeine, deep fried foods, peanuts/pistachios/cashews, or alcohol.

i can also only eat brown rice (but other non-wheat grains are okay as well).

everything else not on the above "no-no" list is okay as well.

does anyone have any good recipes for me? also, i'll be in montreal (canada) for a few days at the end of this diet so will have a hard time eating out - if anyone has any tips on eating out on this diet, or tips about places to eat in montreal, that would be great! thanks!
gimme more of that old school steez

non-wheat flours & cooking & making bread

if i want to use non-wheat flours (e.g. oat, kamut, or spelt), can i just substitute it in recipes calling for wheat flour, or will that not work?

i was thinking of making things like bread, biscuits, pastry crusts, etc.. and also using non-wheat flours to thicken sauces.

also, does anyone have a good recipe for a non-wheat bread?

(this is due to my 2-week detox diet.)
