nitrates means meats with any nitrates such as lunch meats, ham, sausage, bacon, pepperoni, or smoked meats to name a few. Caffeine is any item that has caffeine in it, chocolate or cola or such. He is very allergic to any of these. All beans, nuts, etc, including great items such as avacados.

I'd probably have a nice salad, and a pasta or rice dish. https://www.instructables.com/id/Spicy_Baked_Macaroni_and_Cheese/ would work well, or pasta with a simple tomato sauce (crushed tomatoes and basil with some garlic). Mushroom risotto is also really good (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Mushroom-Risotto-231798 ) but you should omit the soy sauce just to be safe (homemade stock is also probably a good idea). Some veggies on the side (steamed asparagus with lemon and butter) would be good as well.

For dessert I'd probably go with something like carrot cake (https://www.instructables.com/id/Perfect_Carrot_Cake/), creme brulee (https://www.instructables.com/id/Creme_Brulee/), or cheese cake.

A couple more ideas...

Thickeners like Gelatin or corn starch might help you create something with some good texture to it.

How about throwing a bunch of different veggies, some cooked hamburger, and some bouillon in a pot and calling it stew?

You can try a pasta dish with chicken (don't use Pesto sauce it has nuts) and a salad. Salmon with roasted potatoes and some sort of vegetable side, like green beans.

Allrecipies.com has a recipe search that allows you to list ingredients that you don't want. Just select the meal (diner, main dish, gourmet etc.), what you don't want (beans, nuts, bacon etc).
This may be more helpful then my meal suggestions.
