Root VegetablesLow in calories and high in protein, root vegetables are at their seasonal best in the fall or winter. Carrots, beets, parsnips, parsley root, Jerusalem artichokes and all that grow beneath are rooted in the Scandi-diet, according to Hahnemann. Of course, nutrient-rich green veggies like nettles, ramps, garlic, Swiss chard, asparagus, peas, spinach and leeks are just as prevalent in Nordic meals. “Vegetables are so important in our diet,” says Hahnemann. “Because of the climate, we have to eat less meat and instead eat locally grown vegetables.”
