What foods are forbidden in Buddhism?
Onions, Garlic, Scallions, Chives and Leeks, "the five pungent spices" are forbidden for some sects (China, Vietnam) for pretty much the same reason as in Hinduism, they're said to lead to anger (raw) and passion (cooked), but the Buddhists add that their odors repel gods and attract hungry ghosts and demons.

Strange how the allium / sulfur producing vegetables are said to ward off undead or evil spirits in so many cultures.

There must be some basis to this.

i've said for years that garlic seems to decrease spirituality

if garlic can ward off spirits in general.. then it might make sense .

I also think TEST enhancing foods in general are not good for spirituality, hence why they are forbidden in buddhism

Beans are forbidden in Buddhism because of the excessive gas they produce. It breaks concentration during mass meditation.
