Sami Slow Food - Part of A Sustainable Culture

2:09 PM Posted by jo

The Sami people  are native indigenous people of the northern Scandinavia. The Sami believe in what they call "slow" food. Reindeer  plays an important role in this . They use every part of the animal. The meat and fat is for eating. The fur and skin is used for clothes. The antlers are used for tools and knives. The diet of the Sami people does not rely on fruit and vegetables as the main part of their diet. Especially in winter. Instead, they use root vegetables such as potato, angelica, and beets. Furthermore, they use herbs, mushrooms, berries, and every edible part of the reindeer as the base for most meals during the winter. Hop over to our main site for the rest of the story.
