I'm looking for a simple menu of foods that fill nutritional requirements, are easy to make, and that won't bother my fussy unhappy gut while I'm on a crazy schedule for the next while.

Lately I've been bloated and gassy and kind of miserable ALL the time. I know I have to go see a doctor, but right now I do not have the time. In fact, I don't really have the time for anything--I'm at school from 10 to 10 most days, with an hour or two for lunch and dinner.
So, what I'm looking for are foods that traditionally don't bother the gut, but that will fill my nutritional needs (espcially fiber and protein) while I'm on this madcap schedule.
Ideally, this diet would be really basic and easy to obtain/make (i'm not averse to eating the same thing every day) and after this hecticness is over, I could start adding other things to figure out what's causing this gastrointestinal distress.
So, hivemind--what should I eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day? I'm avoiding dairy and wheat in the hopes that that will solve my ills, but it's not really helping so far. Next I think I'll cut out fruit juices and apples--but I think I'm going about this the wrong way. I'd rather start with a basic menu and add things rather than cut things from my diet.
