Nordic food as healthy as Mediterranean food?

Scientists at Uppsala University recently started a study wanting to examine the old an the new Nordic food in comparison to the Greek food, since Greek food is proven to have a positive effect on blood pressure, lipoproteins and weight.

The Mediterranean food contains a lot of vitamins, antioxidants and fibers. Healthy fat in the form of olive oil and focus on fish and chicken.

The translation of Mediterranean food into Nordic food would be something like this.

  • rye bread
  • oatmeal
  • wheat bran
  • oats and barley
  • fennel
  • root vegetables
  • apple
  • spinach
  • blueberries
  • pears
  • plums
  • lingonberries
  • cale
  • dill
  • mustard
  • rape oil
  • fish; salmon, mackerel
  • chicken, turkey and other birds
  • cumin

It remains to be seen if the Nordic food has the same effect on health as the Mediterranean food, but looking at this list sure makes you believe in the health value of our Nordic provisions.
