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 (from TV dramas like The Killing, Borgen or The Bridge to fashion and interiors), it's perhaps no surprise that the traditional diet of Northern Europe, which isn't unlike that of the Med diet in its simplicity, is also having a resurgence.
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.
