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.
