Brief History

My name is Jennifer van Dijk. I am an American living in The Hague, The Netherlands with my Dutch husband and our two adorable little girls. I came from the Midwest, but have lived in The Netherlands since 2006.

In 2016, I was diagnosed by a homeopath to have allergies to wheat, gluten, rice, cow's milk, goat's milk, lactose, chocolate, peanuts, onions, soy, papaya, and bananas. Whoa! This is my blog about how this has transformed my life.

I am not finding many resources in The Netherlands that are a guide for people with food allergies that also need to feed a family that may or may not have food allergies. The resources in English are even fewer. So I am making resources of my own. We will make the journey together. I will help you with how to grocery shop and how to hack recipes. 

This community is going to help me cope with these new changes. This blog will be my outlet for what I am learning along the way.
