Sure, many diets continue to take the lead as the world’s healthiest eating plans. For example, the Mediterranean diet balances fish, olive oil, fruits, and vegetables and may help you live a longer life. It’s also low in saturated fat while high in antioxidants and fiber. But north of the Mediterranean…way up north, there’s another eating method geared toward people who want more energy and some extra endurance.

It’s the Nordic way, and it tracks back to Viking days. While you may associate the region’s cuisine with the gravy-soaked Swedish meatballs at IKEA, most Nordics eat simple food that’s raw and in season. “Viking” food is built on what’s local, in-season, and tastes delicious.
