”Riktiga män äter sallad” 2012-03-08
The edition is released in Swedish, English and Danish.

According to medical science, more vegetables on the plate can contribute to a longer life, increased muscle strength and decreased impotence problems. Hence the title “Real men eat salad”. However, “salad” is so much more than tomatoes and cucumber. A salad would preferably be a mix of green vegetables, root vegetables, beans, nuts, wholegrain of cereal and olive oil to go with the dish of for example meat or fish. That will make you replete in an enjoyable and pleasant way, and not bloated.

BRANDS

Mitt Matrike
We believe in nature. ”Mitt Matrike” is sprung out of an attitude to food, in which additives have no place and produce and commodities come from suppliers that share our view on ethical farming and sustainable agriculture. It is nature – with its different geological pre-conditions and different climate zones, that sets the rules for what is growing and thriving. In “Mitt Matrike”, nature has drawn the map. This philosophy pervades all brands and books.

Restauration Gubbhyllan at Skansen
KC Wallberg has operated the establishment Gubbhyllan at Skansen, Stockholm – a food café and restaurant – since 2008. Everything on the menu is homemade. Gubbhyllan comprises a bakery, fresh juice manufacturing, restaurant kitchen and production facilities. Commodities in the season are used and tasteful dishes, without unwanted additives, are presented. “Instead, we have faith in the right cooking techniques and methods of preparation. We respect and learn from history but add a modern twist.” This is noticeable, in quality and in taste. A sustainable approach, promoting nutrition and pure, healthy food.

“We cooperate with producers working according to organic and/or biodynamic principles. A direction that gives us the possibility of offering a vast number of products, all manufactured with a minimum of negative footprint on nature. The complete process is based on this concern. To our producers, and to us, being certified is an important statement of a long-term investment in sustainability. Our artisan producer´s knowledge is the key, most of them are certified. However, some are still under conversion into organic or biodynamic agriculture and production.”
