Eating Healthily Over Easter Holiday – Easter is both a great religious and social festival. Even so, almost cultures that celebrate Easter have a tradition that involves eating rich and indulgent food, such as those classic Easter eggs, various types of chocolates and special spiced cakes such as Hot Cross Buns.
From a dieting viewpoint though, these foodstuffs are something of a disaster. High in calories and in some cases at least, low in nutritional value, they are normally things to avoid if you are trying to lose or control your weight.
Nordic Diet Benefits – Northern countries have invested much time and energy researching the benefits of this diet for their citizens. But interestingly, they may do better looking a bit closer to home: recent findings from scientists in northern Europe suggest that foods from Scandinavian countries can provide a more convenient alternative for those not living in warmer climates. For example, research from the University of Agder, Norway, has shown that native berries from northern Europe such as blueberries, cowberries and cloudberries contain as much unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids as fish per unit of energy and that these berries are rich in antioxidants, key for preventing heart disease, stroke and cancer.
