My daughter is peanut and tree nut allergic. After skin testing dr said to avoid all nuts and peanuts. (We didn't do bloodwork bc her reaction to skin test was definitely allergic plus she had a reaction to peanuts already). She included chickpeas and said green peas. However they have been my daughter's favorite veggie since a baby so she said green peas were fine to continue since we have had no reaction. I just recently realized all beans are legumes as well as soybeans. She has eaten tons of various types of beans (except chickpeas-she has never had hummus) and has eaten things with soy (as its in everything just about) without reactions. Should I continue allowing her to eat as she always has avoiding tree nuts, peanuts, and chickpeas as i always have and continue to allow her to eat soy, beans, etc if she has never reacted? I'm confused/ understanding is there is not a separate test for different legumes and I should not be concerned if there has been no reaction
