How do rice and oatmeal compare to wheat in terms of allergenic potential, inflammatory response, etc.? Are they more acceptable, or just as bad?

Oats are nearly as bad as wheat. Loads of the allergenic proteins that cause the problems. Rice is much better in this regard however it still packs the hefty glycemic load.

What about couscous? Where does that fit in terms of allergenic potential, etc.?

Couscous is wwheat and as such not a good food option IMO. I think it also counts as Hippy Food.
