Description

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.

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 boasts seventy-five delicious and healthy recipes--from breakfast smoothies and cold cucumber soup to venison stew and raspberry lime sorbet--and teaches you how to incorporate the principles of the Nordic diet into your everyday cooking routine.
