My Nordic Kitchen


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.
