Nasal wheeze: Since this symptom occurs after eating and it apparently doesn't matter what you eat, some sort of vasomotor reflex rather than an allergic reaction appears to occur. The nose may drip some liquid with this type of reflex. You could try instilling a nasal decongestant spray before you eat to see if the nasal wheeze is prevented.
