Protein sources for a dairy/gluten intolerant picky eater?

Hello all! Tough question for you today... A family that my family is close with has a 16-year-old daughter, Sophia, who has been having some health issues - namely, she has been fainting a lot (often several times a day). Her parents have taken her to several doctors and her bloodwork has all come back fine. So they're at a bit of a loss. They took her to a holistic doctor who, among other things, told her to go off gluten and dairy for a while to clean out her system and see if that helps. She has always had issues digesting dairy, and her dad has some issues with gluten. I spoke to her mom briefly yesterday and she's really concerned about how to get her to eat healthy. Specifically, she's concerned about her protein intake, because Sophia is a very picky eater. She doesn't really like beans, and almonds are the only nuts that she likes. I didn't get to speak to her for long, but it sounds like they're trying to limit meat intake as well (though not entirely, as far as I know). I'm trying to compile some information so I can give it to her when I see her next Sunday. So, if any of you have any suggestions or even recipes, please let me know - this could help them out a lot! Thank you :)
