More and more people are introducing vegan, gluten-free, meatless, low-sodium, -sugar or -fat foods to their daily diets through choice or necessity. For those kinds of foodies there is a useful web site that brings together chefs, bloggers, photographers and nutritionists through a web community of people interested in an alternative diet. Cucina Mancina shares topical articles related to health and food, and offers an interactive store locator on where to buy special products or eat “different” meals.

It has also a great web recipe book labeled according to type of allergy or diet. You can find even fancy Christmas treats like these chocolate and cinnamon vegan biscuits. Visit Tuscany is very happy to promote this project and thanks their founders for sharing their healthy recipes with us.
