Food Allergy Resources

My favorite blogs for recipes –

My favorite cookbooks –

Documentaries on food allergies –

Apps I count on –

  • Healthy Living – The Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) app for quickly identifying health and safety ratings for over 200,000 food, personal care, and cosmetic products.  All you have to do is scan the barcode (or search) to get a score for allergy, cancer, and developmental concerns.  I try to stay in the green, occasionally use yellow, but avoid completely the reds – once you try it you will understand.  My mom put me onto this and I have used it since. 
  • Health (iPhone) – for emergency contact information especially!
  • Clue – for tracking menstrual & ovulation cycles BUT but I also use it to track symptoms (like hives!) & fitness
  • Days – for motivation while counting or tracking goals (like days you have left on the elimination diet!)
  • WebMD – a general medical resource for quick info
  • All Recipes – for inspiration

High School Teacher, Artist, Writer, Obsessive Documentor & Organizer of Things

Jess is a teacher, writer, artist, and entrepreneur living in Alexandria, VA after relocating back home from her beloved Oakland, CA. 

Born and raised in the Washington, D.C. area, Jessica Gray Schipp, grew up with seasonal allergies that affected her well-being. She later learned she had multiple food allergies responsible for much of her suffering. After decades of struggling with day-to-day activities, mitigating the unbearable side effects from the medications she was prescribed, and struggling with the nagging fear of never knowing how her body would treat her on any given day – Jess said, “enough” and created #AllergicToEverything®. After several years of testing and incorporating whole-food based ingredients into her life, a cookbook was born.
