Pass Up Processed Foods
Those convenient supermarket-bought snack bars that parade as a healthy way to stave off hunger between meals have no place in the Scandinavian diet.

In fact, the diet consists of far less processed foods than our daily nosh. Avoiding cereals, white breads and pastas and those pesky muesli bars makes sense when they cost a small fortune to purchase.

In the end, it’s a simple equation of in vs out. Fewer meals and snacks means fewer calories to later burn off. Easy!

If you really must snack, how about baking your own Apricot Muesli Bars?
