Happy New Year and a brief announcement

Jan 5, 2014

Hello my dear readers and a Happy New Year to you all! 

For the past couple of years I have been building this page around my Norwegian upbringing and background as a food professional, combining traditional recipes from my homeland with my interest in beverages and nature pictures from the fjord land of Norway.  For ethical and health reasons, I have recently decided to adopt a plant based diet and am currently developing and updating Norwegian recipes and ideas around my new lifestyle. Realizing that most of the Norwegian diet is largely animal driven, I hope you will continue to follow me as I will still be focusing on Norwegian traditions and history while aiming to give accurate information about how Norwegians cook and live.  My goal is to present recipes that showcase how most Norwegian recipes can be adapted to include plant based foods with the same exact result in taste and texture. However, if you decide that is not for you, my blog’s goal is not to convert you in any way, shape or form, and you can certainly substitute any ingredients you wish to suit your lifestyle.  Regardless, I sure hope you will be open to at least checking out what I will come up with, as I promise to have some exciting content on my blog this year!

My old recipes I have posted previously will of course still be available, as that is also part of what Arctic Grub is all about. I believe we are all interested in eating healthy (although rest assured there will be plenty of indulgent recipes here as well!) and I find that by offering this twist on my recipes, it will fill a void in the Scandinavian and Norwegian food scene in an area there is much interest. Please rest assured I’m committed to discovering and creating new ways of showcasing the wealth of what Norway has to offer food wise!

My hope is that you will stay with me on this journey, as I remain a passionate Scandinavian food and drink lover whose goal it is to continue to provide my readers with exquisite recipes! Thanks for all your support and I welcome any comments and questions!  Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2014!

    Good for you, Sunny! This is the way to go! I lost a lot of my readers when I went mostly plant-based myself but you must do your thing & you will loose some & you will win more & more people over because it is the best way to live, I feel! xxx

    Well done, you are very brave! xxx Happy 2014 to you & your lovely blog!!!
