I'm thinking about cooking up a Sinner's Dinner. Help me make my shopping list of religiously forbidden foods.

I want to make a dinner that is composed of as many foods that are religiously forbidden as possible (that is to say, expressly and specifically frowned upon in a religious text). From a Christian standpoint, I have a vague sense that Leviticus would be a place to look, but beyond that I have no clue.
If you would be so kind, please list a specific passage from a religious text (and which text it is) that you think outlaws a specific food or drink. If you know something about theology, and can drop some knowledge about who the law was intended for and stuff like that, that's cool too.
