College Roommate has peanut allergies, should we all stop eating nuts?
My roommate (age 21) is allergic to peanuts, shellfish, and dairy. She doesn't want to make the rest of the apartment (4 girls) stop eating foods we like, but we feel bad when she always has to avoid the kitchen because of us. I want her to feel welcome, but I also want to eat salmon and peanut butter sometimes. What is a good compromise for this situation?
Edit: she is not deathly allergic. She goes out for sushi with us and sometimes eats reeses cups. She has never been hospitalized but still gets very itchy and uncomfortable around these foods.
