house guest with complicated dietary needs

LizisBusy:
Starting Friday, we will have a house guest for two weeks.

She has told me that she is diabetic, mostly vegetarian, and on a strict no-carb, gluten free diet.

I'm not sure what to prepare other than lots of plain steamed vegetables.

I asked her what she normally eats day to day and she told me not to worry about it and simply will NOT address the subject with me, even going as far as getting upset with me for asking.

Any have any ideas for recipes?

Lisbeth:
I'd just let her be in charge of her own meals.

MDefarge:
Is it too late to suggest a hotel?  Honestly I would get some veggies, but otherwise when she shows up just tell her the truth.  "You wouldn't tell me what sort of foods to buy, so I'm assuming you have your meals planned, let me know if I can help you cook anything."

edenparadox:
I'd say that was an inconsiderate guest.

Just make sure you have your fruit and veggies stocked. Maybe have some tofu in the fridge. And leave it at that. You're not psychic so you've done all you could.

No ideas for recipes, but she'd be on her own, with me.  You've tried the best you can to fine out what to have on hand for her, and she's not cooperating, so to heck with her.
