My Nordic Kitchen My Nordic Kitchen

Hello!

My name is Therese Elstad and welcome to My Nordic Kitchen from Oslo, Norway. Since 2016, this blog has been a place for me to express my love for nutrition, wholefood and photography. The recipes you will find on this blog will be plant-based, nutritious and greatly inspired by the Nordic areas surrounding me. Read more about New Nordic Food here.

I’ve been interested in food for as long as I can remember- from the time I was a little kid, trying to mix something amazing out of a bowl with flour, sugar and water- to this day, where I am eagerly interested in nutrition, wholefoods and bringing people together through a good meal and a wonderful experience.

I am not for labelling the way I eat- or the way anyone eats. I believe in eating food– good, pure, wholefoods. Balance and moderation is key as is everything else in life. By using natural ingredients, yet delicious and appetizing, it will make you feel more satisfied- and more happy, beautiful and fulfilled.

Food is one of the most important things we have in life- and we should all have enough knowledge about food to be able to live a long and happy life. It should not be a burden- nor should it be boring. Food should be something that makes you thrive to be able to live the life you want, it should bring people together in the most wonderful way and last but not least- it should be fun.

I hope this is a place where you will get a lot of joy and inspiration.

    thanks for the follow - i've just had a scan through your blog, and absolutely love your content. my blog is helping me to beat my depression by capturing things which i can do with my two children, around making, cooking, playing, etc. i'll be keeping an eye on your blog to spot fun recipes to try out - and i'd love to feature ideas of yours which are appropriate, when I give them a go.

    I love your unpushy attitude, even though you really know what you believe - so many people come across as very judgemental when they talk about eating healthily. Very refreshing, and the recipes look and sound delicious - thanks!

      Thank you for that :) I do my very best and believe that everyone has their own opinion about their food and that you simply cannot change your diet completly :)

        Yay! Love all round :) I'm somewhat hooked on the notion of chia and oats but in the middle of trying to reset my system as I have made a terrible mess and it really needs cleaning up so no oats for me! Strength lies within? ;)
