New Nordic's Cool, But Old Scandinavian Food Holds Its Own

New Nordic's Cool, But Old Scandinavian Food Holds Its Own | Vegetarian and Vegan |
Scandinavian cuisine is a product of geography and climate, plus some seafaring Viking history.

Although its praises are seldom sung, traditional Scandinavian fare — full of seafood, berries, roots and rye — has a lot to recommend it. To be clear, we're not talking fancy French technique or expansively layered spice palettes. We're talking about simple farm fare, hearty whole grain breads and rich seafood stews, food meant to sustain you during the winter. And according to some studies, it may actually be fairly healthy.

Did you know that 70-80%  of your immune system resides in your gut, your G.I. Tract. Humans wouldn't be alive without the good bacteria that resides in our body. We have a symbiotic relationship.


Probiotic foods which are known as fermented foods (they are cultured a certain way) and probiotic supplements are needed to assist the good bacteria to do their work in your body. 


Here's 5 probiotic foods that you may want to try. Your bacteria will thank you for it. 


Just know that most commercial bought yogurts are loaded with sugar which negates any benefits. You can easily make your own nut yogurts or dairy yogurts. Recipes abound on the internet. Kefir is another fermented food, not mentioned in the article. There are water-kefirs and dairy kefirs.

Integrieren Sie fermentierte Lebensmittel in Ihren Speiseplan!

Fermentiere Lebensmittel haben eine jahrtausendalte Tradition und galten schon immer als gesund. Sie sind gut verdaulich und steigern die Bioverfügbarkeit von Nahrungsmittelbestandteilen. Sie halten sich länger und entwickeln ihren ureigenen Geschmack. Sauerkraut, Sauerteig, Joghurt, gereifter Käse, Wein, Bier, die Würzpaste Miso, Tempeh, Essig, Tee -  überall sind Bakterien aktiv!

In Bioläden und Hofläden finden Sie auch Milchprodukte, die aus Vorzugsmilch hergestellt wurden.  Je natürlicher desto besser!
