After a great deal of research and considering all of my allergies and intolerances (as well as some known tolerances), I decided that combining the low FODMAP and Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) diets would be the best and safest structure for me to work from.
What I have unfortunately found is that there are a lot of contradictory sources. Because of this, I am putting together an official list of foods that are confirmed to adhere to both low FODMAP and AIP protocol.
