-- Macadamia nuts especially, but also other kinds of nuts

-- Milk and other dairy products, including ice cream

-- Raw or undercooked meat and fish

-- Salt, including salty things such as chips or pretzels

-- Sugary foods and drinks

-- The stems, leaves, peel, fruit and seeds of citrus plants, apple seeds, the pits of plums, peaches and nectarines
