What is the Nordic diet and why is it good for you?
Typically defined as a diet based around the traditional foods of Northern Europe, the Nordic diet champions locally-sourced ingredients and is rich in fish, grains, vegetables and berries.
Foods typically consumed in the Nordic diet plan are traditionally sourced in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden and include game meats, poultry, legumes, root vegetables and whole-grain cereals.
Due to its low-sugar and salt content, the WHO praises the diet for lowering the risk of cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, promoting it alongside the Mediterranean diet in a recent review.
