Meet the Nordic diet, the Mediterranean diet’s eco-friendly little cousin
You want to eat more fruits and veggies—but you definitely don’t want to ban bread, pasta, and dairy. You believe what you nosh can boost your brain. You’d like to try and buy more locally and seasonally to support small farmers and the environment. Sounds like you’re the perfect candidate for the Nordic diet: the cold-climate answer to the Mediterranean diet.
Developed in 2004 by a group of researchers, dietitians, and doctors in collaboration with the Michelin-starred Copenhagen restaurant NOMA, the Nordic diet was adapted from the Baltic Sea Diet Pyramid to encourage people in Nordic countries to eat more fresh, seasonal, local foods.
