The Nordic Diet Using Local and Organic Food to Promote a Healthy Lifestyle (Paperback)
|Eat your way to health and happiness with a diet built on tradition.|
From the Publisher:
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.
