The Nordic Diet: Using Local and Organic Food to Promote a Healthy Lifestyle

by Trina Hahnemann

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 quality homemade and homegrown 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.

Recipes include:

Swiss Chard tart
Spelt pancakes with blueberries
Cold cucumber soup
Venison and mushroom stew
Raspberry lime sorbet

This soulful book includes the elements, ingredients, and basic philosophy of eating a Nordic diet with information on the nutritious benefits of each ingredient. It teaches you how to incorporate the principles of the Nordic diet into your everyday cooking routine.

‘The pictures in this book are amazing , like you could pick an apple up and eat it. The recipes are fresh and crisp looking, not so much cooking as fixing and arranging food. Should be good for less experienced cooks with knife and box grater skills. Everything looks very healthy and can probably be adjusted for vegetarians. I can’t wait to get to the farmers market.’
