Allyson Kramer is an artist, food photographer, blogger, vegan and gluten-free recipe writer, and cookbook author. Allyson has been cooking since her teens but didn’t learn of her gluten intolerance until a health scare forced her to research treatments for her ailments. Now in great health, Allyson has a new cookbook, Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats, and has recently completed a second book which is due out next year. Her web site, Manifest Vegan, is a popular resource for anyone looking for delicious animal-friendly recipes and tips. Since Allyson lives close by, we recently met her for lunch at one of our favorite vegan restaurants, where we had a chance to talk to her about her busy life and upcoming projects.
Founded in 2011, From A to Vegan strives to share perspectives about veganism in the 21st century. From food to fashion, leisure to sustainability, our goal is to provide noteworthy and useful information to anyone thinking about or currently leading a life free of animal products. We think it's important to present different points of view and challenge common misperceptions about people and practices that are considered vegan. We hope to open minds to the possibility of a sustainable way of life through alternative choice. In the process, we hope to learn things about ourselves as well.
