A testimonial about #AllergicToEverything®
The Kickstarter campaign, when funded, will allow food allergy collectors and the people who love them to navigate their food allergy journeys with a one-stop resource, cookbook, and lifestyle guide. This book is more than a dietary resource for allergy sufferers, #AllergicToEverything®
"I was so sick of the salad option, nobody wants the salad, and nobody should have to spend five hours trying to figure out how to make a muffin," says Jessica Gray Schipp, Author and Founder of #AllergicToEverything®
Jess was diagnosed with multiple food allergies in 2010 and her journey was extremely challenging. Having no idea how to start navigating her new life, she wrote the book because she needed a one-stop resource to help manage the dangerous complications of food allergies. Eating has always been a simple task for most people but becomes scary and painful for the food allergy community. Jess's experience, her trials and tribulations, and her time spent on this endeavor are what makes this book so incredibly valuable to the food allergy community.
According to Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), "researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.9 million children under age 18. That's 1 in 13 children, or roughly two in every classroom."
Food allergies are on the rise. According to Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), it is estimated that 15 million Americans are living with one or more food allergies. Worldwide that number jumps to 150 million, according to a study done in 2011 by Elucidare.

ABOUT JESSICA GRAY SCHIPP
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 – Jessica said, "enough" and created #AllergicToEverything®
#AllergicToEverything is a cookbook and lifestyle guide for people with food allergies and the people who love them. #AllergicToEverything was created for people with food allergies, but the book's benefits extend to everyone! The recipes are whole-foods based and delicious (check out taste-testers Sabrina and Rachel, eating the goat cheese dates in the launch video!).
