Which foods are off limits as of today

Short version of the current state of affairs (approx. Nov. '08 through May '09): Our daughter is being treated as allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, certain beans, sesame, eggs, and poppy seeds, and the doctor has us avoiding fish and shellfish until further testing is performed. She can’t eat these foods in any quantity, and we must keep Benadryl and an EpiPen on hand at all times in case of accidental ingestion resulting in an allergic reaction. Peas, black beans, and white (great northern) beans have been successfully added back into her diet. She’s happy, healthy, and eats tons of other foods. On a (possibly?) related topic - her eczema never completely goes away but it’s about 95% better than a year ago.
