The Nordic Diet is all about eating locally-sourced seasonal ingredients in a balanced diet of protein, carbohydrates, and beneficial fats. The traditional diet of Northern Europe emphasizes good homemade and homegrown seasonal food – with an attempt at moving away from processed foods – and consists of a wide variety of grains, berries, vegetables, fish, poultry, and game meats. Not only is a Nordic diet comparable in terms of nutrition to the celebrated Mediterranean diet, but it also provides an easy plan for eco-friendly eating. This soulful book includes the elements, ingredients, and basic philosophy of eating a Nordic diet, and reveals how to incorporate the principles of this diet into your daily life. It boasts seventy-five delicious and healthy recipes for everyday eating, including: breakfast smoothies, spelt pancakes with blueberries, cold cucumber soup, kale and chicken salad, Swiss chard tart, fishcakes with baked potatoes and asparagus, venison and mushroom stew, raspberry lime sorbet, blueberry cordial, and more!
