Comments: Because she has dedicated so much time to helping others with Celiac!
Comments: Because she keeps us up to date on celiac events and news with a superbly organized blog spot, and because I love Peanut Butter Swirly Chocolate Fudge!

Vanessa's Celiac blog is informative, clever, witty, timely, colorful and, most importantly, constantly  interesting.

Who doesn't like cupcakes?  But what is a celiac patient to do?  Vanessa answers that question.  

Vanessa's blog present serious, timely information in a fun, enjoyable way to swallow.  Her passion for her subject and her bubbly personality comes out it every posting. 




Because she has devoted her life to helping and educating people with Celiac Disease. I have learned so much from her! She has written two books on the subject, worked for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, is helping hospitals and big chain stores with their gluten free resources, writes for a magazine on GF Meals on a Budget, and is working to get the government to help people with Chronic Illness to have excellent health care. All at the age of 25.  Now doesn't that sound like someone who should win the "People's Health Blogger Award"?


Comments: SHe's the hippest gluten free guru there is.
Comments: The undiagnosed and recently diagnosed individuals searching the internet for answers are immensely aided by information from others who have the disease.  Doctors tend to say, "You have celiac.  Don't eat wheat."  Fellow celiacs educate one another and make this diet possible.  Vanessa is doing a fine work of sharing the good news that gluten free is not a sentence, but a challenge with a very nice ending.  She deserves accolades for the many folks who are aided by her blog in their struggles to wrap their minds around a world without all the many gluten containing foods. 
Comments: She should win because she has devoted a lot of time and energy to helping others with celiac disease.  She deserves to win!

Blogs are interesting and  informative with just the right touch of humor. It doesn't hurt that she's also a hotty!

Comments: Vanessa Maltin is awesome!

Vanessa has demonstrated through her work and research incredible passion for the Celiac & Gluten Intolerant communities. Her dedication brings smiles to many people!!


I have followed her since I was dx'd with celiac and her blog has been so helpful to me and others I've shared it with on forum.

She's just so deserving!!!!!!!!


For anyone with celiac disease, or who thinks they may feel better cutting out gluten, her book Beyond Rice Cakes is mandatory reading. 

But unlike most books that you were forced to read, this book is FUN.  It's amazing what kinds of foods you can eat if you know what to look for and where to find it.  Vanessa's book tells it like it is, particularly for college age and older students.

Congratulations, Vanessa M.!
