MAKING YOUR VACATION IN SWEDEN ORGANIC, HEALTHY, AND FUN

When planning your trip to Sweden you may wonder if you’ll have access to high-quality, organic food. Lucky for you Sweden is a strong proponent of the organic movement and has more organic produce purchased by the public than any other country in the world. They even have a national goal to be at 60% organic purchases by the year 2030! So, how do you tap into this cornucopia of organic goodness on your getaway?

Supplement

If you’re watching your diet while you travel, even to a place like Sweden where healthy eating options abound, it’s a good idea to pack your own supplements. Supplementation can help fill any gaps in your diet while you travel and make up for the occasional indulgence along the way. Practically speaking, it’s a good idea to use the supplements before traveling so you know how your body will respond. Checking out Le-Vel Thrive Reviews can help you figure out what you need to make this your healthiest vacation yet.

Check Out Restaurants In Advance

Sweden has some of the best, most sustainable restaurants in the world. If you’re a foodie looking to chase down those Michelin stars, this is the place to do it. Before your trip, take the time to select the restaurants you want to go to and make reservations early. Don’t assume that you’ll be able to get in if you just show up. The chefs of Sweden are putting it on the map in the gastronomical community and if you want to get in on the action, you’ll want to take the time to plan and reserve well before you leave home.

Add a Farmers Market to the Itinerary

Produce at Swedish farmer's markets is going to be the freshest food you can find, and it’s always local. In fact, Swedish farmer's markets have two rules which make them special: produce cannot come from any farm outside a 155 miles radius, and sellers must grow or raise any product they sell, this includes all the primary ingredients in mixed packed products like sausages, jams, and marmalades.

Grab a Cup of Coffee

The Swedish people take their coffee very seriously, if you need your morning fix, you can kill two birds with one stone and enjoy healthy food and a great cup of coffee. Many cafes have excellent tea choices and vegan options, as well.

Go On Food Tours

If you’re in Sweden for the food, consider taking a food tour. There are a variety available including self-guided tours and bus tours. Checking out a tour allows you to discover places you may not have otherwise visited with others just as interested in the food culture of Sweden as you are. You can even visit Lapland for an evening of food and stories, exploring the produce of “the land of eight seasons,” Good food, new friends, unexpected discoveries, what more could you ask for in a vacation?

Cook It Yourself

Pick up some tempting favorites from the farmer's markets, cafes, and grocery stores you visit, and enjoy a day relaxing in your room, savoring the bounty of your finds. Or plan to visit one of the 20 tables in The Edible Country. The Edible Country was created with the help of 4 Michelin-starred chefs and each of the 20 tables is in a different part of Sweden. Here you learn about the local food harvested from lakes, fields, and forests, and cook your own meals using recipes provided. You won’t eat more locally than this.

Conclusion

The Swedish have a very balanced concept of eating with an emphasis on sustainability, moderation, and enjoyment. Their word “lagom” invites you to approach foods with a not too much, not too little mindset that doesn’t leave pleasure at the curb. If you want your vacation to include organic, sustainably sourced meals that don’t disappoint, Sweden is the destination you won’t want to miss.
