For many years, a Mediterranean diet has been considered the best for our bodies. It's easy to see why - fresh, seasonal produce, cooked from scratch combined with a healthy approach to exercise. Simple.
But now that we're obsessed with all things Scandinavian it's perhaps no surprise that the traditional diet of Northern Europe is also having a resurgence. And with new findings showing that eating the Nordic way can help reduce blood pressure and encourage weight loss, it's easy to see why.
Denmark's favourite female chef, Trina Hahnemann has updated and re-released her bestselling 2010 book, The Nordic Diet
(Quadrille Publishing; £12.99) as a guide to getting in shape by eating the Scandinavian way.
