Hello from New Jersey!
So my boyfriend has a very VERY severe life threatening peanut and treenut allergy. He wants to move in with me (as we have been together for many years), but without the help of his (very uncooperative) mother, we are both unsure what kinds of meats and other dinner options would be safe for him to eat.
Does anyone who lives in New Jersey have any knowledge on what brands of meat are safe for him to eat and where to get them? Thank you!
-Carly

Keeping boyfriend peanut-free
I think there are a few things you should do to be responsible, capable adults.
First.
Talk to your boyfriends doctor. Find out the particulars of his allergy, emergency treatment and protocol. Know that protocol like the back of your hand, practice if you have to, but know it.
BEFORE he moves in, triage the kitchen.
go through cabinets, remove any and all things peanut, processed in a plant with peanuts, not only meet, but exceed the particulars of insuring a safe environment for your BF.
Wipe down the cabinets, run the utensils and dishes through the dishwasher, clean out the fridge, (wipe inside and out)
Hey if nothing, people will see you being a responsible houseperson and see your committment.
If don't know if he is airborne, or contact, but I know that something as simple as a person eating pistachio's and then handing me the car keys, and me taking keys and then grabbing a carrot with the same hands can cause a reaction.
Remove any harmful allergens.
Be comfortable not bringing, having, eating said allergens.
Establish a good relationship with not only his doctors, but his mom. (which might call for some/a lot of patience, taking the high road, and not letting her "get your goat" or "peanut")
They will be able to assist you. So armed with their knowledge, your boyfriends knowledge you can make cautious and caring decisions.
