Shortly after the site's launch, Allyson was diagnosed with Celiac disease, and she began focusing solely on gluten-free, vegan recipes. Manifest Vegan was listed as one of the top veg blogs of 2010 by VegNews Magazine, and has received praise on such sites as theKitchn.com, Slashfood.com, and Foodgawker. Allyson develops all of the recipes and photos that appear on the site. She is also a contributer to National Celiac Foundation Association newsletter and ChicVegan.com. She lives in Philadelphia, PA.
